My coffee table has a triangle at the bottom of its legs, and as you can see from the picture, the edges have been eaten by my bunny years ago :D
I thought that it would have been useful to keep this level on my future chair, so I removed it for a while and cut its edges out a little to give it a regular shape again and put it back where it was after I painted it.
Anyway, let's start!
The first thing I did is passing a layer of primer for wood
on the triangle and on the legs of my table.
This paint helps the final color hold on a very smooth piece of wood.
You could actually sand it a little with sandpaper instead, but doing this on a very curvy surface is not easy at all. For this reason, I used this special paint for wood and let it dry.
I didn't do this on the whole table because I knew that I was going to upholster the rest later.
