This tired drop side coffee table was in serious need of refinishing. It sat around for a while before I figured out what I wanted to do with it. Then it came to me, a hand stained lotus flower!
I free-hand a Lotus flower, and used General Finishes Antique Walnut Gel Stain to shade out the flower. The edge of the coffee table was painted in General Finishes Antique White Milk Paint and then heavily distressed. I love how it turned out! It was finished off with three coats of General Finishes Gel Topcoat.
