Milky Coffee Table

Milky Coffee Table
Well hello there. I am back and feeling much better. I am convinced it had to do with all your well wishes, I really am. You are all such lovely people, thank you! 
 Down to business. Here is Wendy’s coffee table redo. I once tried to make over a table like this with the shiny, shiny lacquer. It did not go well. I thought paint stripper would remove the shiny layer, since it had a big gash in it, but it was so incredibly impossible to remove, that I gave up and just painted it black. With no primer. And the paint would bubble up and peel off every few weeks, so I’d haul it out and paint it again. Repeat. Oh, I had so much to learn! 
 Anyway, looks like Wendy knew what she was doing here. I love the soft colors, it looks like a milk glass. Check it out on her blog Ramblings from the Sunshine State.

    I HAVE THIS TABLE! But I painted my a creamy pastel lime green. (sounds like a contradiction, but that’s what color it is.)
