Creating an oriental design on a coffee table can be a beautiful and unique way to personalize your furniture. Follow these steps to bring your design to life.
Gather Your Supplies:
- Coffee table
- Paint primer

Step 1: Prepare the Table
Use the painters tape to secure the edges of your table, making sure you press firmly to secure the tape. Using the primer, lightly brush the entire table. Allow the primer to dry before moving on to the next step.
Step 2: Draw the Design
Once the primer is dry, use the pencil to lightly draw out your design on the top of the table. Make sure to use a ruler if needed for a more accurate sketch.
Step 3: Paint the Design
Using your fine-point brush and a light source, start filling in your design with black paint. Once the black paint is finished, use the blue paint to accentuate the design.
Step 4: Allow to Dry
Allow both the black and blue paint to dry completely.
Step 5: Remove the Tape
Once the paint is dry, gently lift up the corners of the tape and slowly remove it from the table.
