Striped Top Side Table
I sanded the table down to bare wood on the top and lightly sanded the bottom. I cleaned the sanding dust off with a slightly moist cloth. I painted the base of the table in a royal blue paint. After that was dry, I taped off the stripes on the top. I stained the stripes on the top of the table and also applied stain over the base of the table. Once that was dry, I removed the painters tape on the top. I then lightly distressed the base with a rough grit sandpaper and also sanded the top stripes in the same manner. I added a coat of polyacrylic to the base and two coats to the top of the table. There you have it! This table has a new lease on life!
