I've had several furniture projects over the years. I've reupholstered chairs, painted dressers, tables, and cribs, but this has to be my favorite - our coffee table. It had these recessed lines that bugged me - always gettings filled with debris and trying to clean them meant the paint was wearing off. At I first thought a glass top might solve the problem, anf that led to another idea - why not spray paint with some cool graphics if I'm going to be protecting it with glass anyway? So I sanded it a little to remove the finish, then I taped off the sides and legs and began spraying. Love it! Later, while teaching at Valley Ridge, we were outside with spray paint and I looked over at the picnic table - it was painted black, but was a little worn and chipped, so I hijacked it and spray painted the top! I love that each year I visit VR the paint has worn off a little more, but there are additions to it - evidence of artists working.
