Step 3: Prepare your surface

Picture of Prepare your surface
Prepare your surface. Wipe it clean, free of any debris or dust. If you want to mask part of it off, do so. I chose not to sand the surface. It has been oiled or waxed at some point(s) in the past, but the surface is very dry. I know it would be more proper to sand, but I did this just as much for the experiment of it as for the wanting an updated table.

I wanted a two-tone effect, so I masked off the trim on the table top.

Also, be sure to clear this project with anyone who thinks they own the table. Princess approved.
