How to Build a Stump Coffee Table
A custom coffee table is a great way to make a unique statement and show off your DIY skills without breaking the bank.
Slightly sand the coffee table with sandpaper to remove the shiny clear coat, creating a porous surface for a new coat of Rosemary Green paint. Remove the leftover dust with a sticky rag.
Paint the table using the Rosemary Green paint.

When the paint is dry, use a level as a guide to draw panel lines on the top of the painted table. Using an angled brush dipped in a dark brown (Mink) paint, paint irregular panel lines painted over the drawn pattern.

Dip steel wool in Tudor Brown furniture wax and apply it in a circular pattern to the dry paint. The steel wool will scratch and remove some of the paint, giving the table an aged look.
Use a soft, clean cloth to buff the painted surface to a smooth patina.
