Understated Coffee Table

 Please note, while this contest is sponsored and I received free product, all opinions are my own.

Hi everyone! This month I participated in the Fab Furniture Flippin' contest again. This month was sponsored by Velvet Finishes. We got to pick two colors for the theme "Colour Your World" this month.

I was super excited to try this new paint as it is something I have never tried before. I decided to stick with a white theme, as I tend to have hard time straying away. I picked out two colors, Understated and Rococo.

One of my furniture friends gave me an amazing coffee table with a solid wood top to use for my project piece (thank you Kim!). I started off by sanding down the top, as you can see I was partially started here in this picture.

I loved the chunky legs and solid shape of the table. I used a dark stain for the wood top of the coffee table and then I prepped it with Velvet Finishes Ready product for the base. This was super easy to spray on and it dried really quickly. I then applied two coats of the color Rococo. To recreate the wood look, you could paint the top in a nice dark color such as Timeless or Luxurious from Velvet Finishes. Here is progress shot after my first coat and stain.

The paint went on very easily. Super smooth and great coverage for white over a dark green color with the only prep being the Ready spray. I then dry brushed Understated over the base color. I then sealed the entire table with Velvet Finishes Protect product. And here is the final product!

I absolutely love how it turned out! I love the refreshing white tones with the dark top.
