Coffee Table Makeover

Today I wanted to share a recent makeover. I purchased this coffee table that had been in the Bellagio Casino in Las Vegas. It was so inexpensive for the substantial furniture piece that it is.
 It is a really heavy piece of furniture. It's hard to tell from the picture, but it was pretty beat up. Hotel furniture suffers a lot of abuse from hotel guests! I had some gouges filled and then painted it Sherwin Williams Creamy. It looked pretty, but plain so I stencilled the top in teal and painted the edges to match.

I was happy with how it turned out for the most part, but it wasn't quite finished. After living with it a while, I decided to mix some of the SW Creamy with some glaze and rubbed it over the top. It was just what was needed to make me happy. The paint and glaze toned down the brightness of the teal and softened it in a lovely way. Here's the after of my wonderful makeover.
Here is a closeup of the stenciled top.
I am happy with how it turned out and I am so glad that it is finally done. This formerly beat up Las Vegas beauty is looking beautiful once again. My living room is really looking so good these days and that makes me so happy.
