Furniture Refinishing Project: Paint and Gloss

I bought this sofa table on craigslist awhile back. It’s found a spot in the front bay window, and it also acts as a stylish room for my sweet dog Ruby who loves to spend hours gazing out. A doggie bed fits nicely beneath.

I felt like the wood finish was dated but liked the line detail that gives it an Asian, parquet feel. I used dark grey oops paint and black Gem Glo gloss to achieve the new finish. It’s nothing Earth-shattering, but I like it much better than before. Mission accomplished!
