The outer edge/rim on the table top was easy to paint since the middle was raised a smidge. I wanted the bold red of Emperor's Silk on the legs. I decided not to use a dark wax or stain, just let it go as bold as it is. I did however distress it with a wet wash cloth which gave it a fabulous chippy look that made me smile.
The top seemed to dull so I of course stenciled it. I love stencils anyway and they had such interest to an otherwise boring surface. A lovely satin finish completed this. Enjoy the pics and feel free to share or comment.
