DIY Painted Coffee Table to add a Pop of Colour

An Inexpensive Table gets a Dramatic Makeover Our furniture is pretty traditional with dark brown wood coffee tables etc.  Personally, I love the look of whitewashed furniture, but our furniture is in pretty good shape so there is no need to refinish it.  Once the finish wears  I may change it, but for now, it’s staying as is.
