Here's another gem by Cassie at primativeandproper/blogspot.com. She found this midcentury gossip table at a yard sale and decided she could do something with it - so she took it home and gave it the primativeandproper treatment with our Milk Paint and Finishing Wax.
"It appeared as if it had already been stripped, so I skipped the sanding and went right to work, removing the seat and then applying two coats of General Finishes Lamp Black. After it was dry, I distressed it lightly to highlight its shape, and then applied General Finishes Satin Finishing Wax with a rag. After that dried I buffed it with a rag. The seat had been removed, and I removed the old fabric. I found a classic black and white houndstooth in my stash and covered the seat with that and then reattached it to the base. Here it is now! I think it's a classic, just like good old Bye Bye Birdie."
