Assess the furniture. Check for damages.
This table has a plastic top. In order for your paint to stick, Slick Stick is needed.
Slick Stick adheres to a surface to prep for paint. Any slick surface, plastic or metal.
Clean the entire table with White Lightning to prepare for paint. This is a important step!
This will be a colorful design, ombré, black and white diamonds.
Starting at the base with Bunker Hill Blue, into Muscadine Wine and Plum Crazy.

Measure and mark with pencil. Then use painters tape to mark the diamond shape.
