I mentioned in a previous post that I found a table in the clearance section of the store marked down from $100 to $36 because there was some red paint on it and also some damage around one of the knobs.
I used a little wood filler to fix the crushed area around the knob
Gave a light sanding to knock down the shine of the green paint and also to smooth out the wood filler
Then I dry brushed a layer of "Beach White" by Behr. This is leftover paint from my kitchen cabinets and trim work in the living and dining areas.
After letting the paint dry for 24 hours, I came at it with some sand paper to allow some of the green to peek through from beneath the white and I used Weldbond glue to adhere some little pecten shells to the knobs.
Here's the finished table in my living room
And this is what happens when I start playing around with pretty stuff
