We already knew not going to work as soon as we found out that the top wasn't a real wood. It's a veneer. As always we want to experiment and see what happened. Soon enough we learned and take a note is not going to work.
We striped over all the stained and made more work for us. After that we sand paper it for the second time. I picked this blue teal color by Valspar ( Sea Wave Signature).
I painted the whole table except the finials. I put 3 coats of paint. After it dried up, I distressed the edges with sand paper and I spray it with Lacquers to finished it up. Spray paint the finials with bronze color.
I love how it turned out and my orchid really compliment it well. This is the second time to bloom after I have this orchid about more than a year ago. You can read how I grow my orchid here !
Have a wonderful and blessed weekend !!!
