This black and white console table definitely stands on its own! After cleaning and sanding, the base was painted with Wise Owl Black and shelf insets with Antique Villa. After many touch ups at the edges, I was happy with the results. The shield on the sides needed a little extra something so Antique Villa was added to the inset and it was outlined with Grecian Clay. The whole thing was then sealed with GF HPTC Flat out Flat.
