Before and After pictures of the 'Painted Sofa Table'

Before: Very straight lines, nothing busy or formal . . .
After: Painted a deep red called 'wild raisin' with a dark chocolate acrylic paint dry-brushed randomly over the top coat for a more rustic look. . .Finished off with hammered drawer pulls and a matte finish. . Now I just need to find some great accessories to sit on top to complete the project. . .
Hint: When painting with red use a dark grey basecoat for easier coverage and a truer color.
*Hubby built this table to go behind a loveseat. . .It actually looks better in the front entryway, and is probably more practical there to.
