One of my favorite client's asked me to paint this coffee table in a creamy white. The piece was a little shiny so for prep I lightly sanded down with 220 grit sandpaper in order to ensure good paint adhesion. There was also a good chance of bleed through issues since I was taking a dark stained piece to a light color. To avoid any headaches I went ahead and sprayed 2 coats of shellac before painting. I used one coat of Vanilla Frosting by Country Chic Paint and then used Top Coat for protection. Such a simple makeover that any one of you can do!
