I kept seeing this broken round table at a dump site and finally wound up putting it in my jeep and hauling it home.
One of the legs was broken so I glued it back together with wood glue and clamps and by the next day, it was good as new.
After a good sanding with my handy electric palm sander, I decided to embellish it with plaster stenciling. Using wood putty instead of joint compound creates a rock hard design that will stand abuse.
I repeated the design all the way around the table.
After painting the entire table black, I began by painting the raised design with gold acrylic paint.
Now the top needed something special as well so I used our Raised Plaster Astana Medallion Stencil with acrylic paints instead of joint compound to create a medallion on the top of the table.
Now it was a fabulous addition to my home.
