It sure was an ugly end table. And it NEEDED to have some serious lovin'. I was told it was not worth painting and to just throw it away... but y'all know me better than that!
So I knew I never wanted the original finish to peek through any distressing... so I base coated the piece with Coastal Color's Summer Nite, a rich black. Then I layered Turks and did some light distressing for the Summer Nite to show through.
But it just wasn't enough... so I added my mermaid... and it still wasn't enough. I needed more interest. I added Bennie to the drawer and kick plate... and to the artwork on the top. And then I added the starfish drawer pull.
