What You Will Need

Step 1: Preparing Your Table
Using your sandpaper, begin by sanding the coffee table lightly. Make sure to sand in the same direction as the grain of the wood and not to sand too hard.
Step 2: Prime
Once the table is sanded, you will need to prime your table. This step is important, as it will provide you with a base for the paint to stick to. Use a paint brush for even coverage.
Step 3: Paint
Now the fun begins! Choose your paint and paint brush. It is best to use a brush with soft bristles for a better finish. Begin painting in sections and make sure to let each layer of paint dry before applying the next layer.
Step 4: Finishing
Finally, you will need to finish your table. You can do this by either varnishing or waxing. This will provide your table with a smooth and finished surface.
