A cool idea to restore old pieces of furniture. I painted the little table on the left red and glued newspapers to the top.

Found this little dresser at "Goodwill" for $10 and painted it to look old and added a vine up the side.... 

How I did it:

I applied a base coat in "satin finish" in a teal color. 

Then I added this on top of the teal:

Let dry (follow directions!)  Once dry, I added a top coat in "Flat off white."

The final look creates dramatic weathered lines and looks really cool!  

Here is the wooden coffee table I made. Solid Pine.
