Paint the inside of the drawer with the red (Romance) chalky finish

Paint the front trim with the Americana Metallic Gold

Place the ironed stripe fabric on the table top and line up the stripes

With the palm of your hand, press a crease around the edges of the fabric

Paint the Americana Decou-Page on the top and adhere the fabric
