I started out by painting the corners with a bluish green color, then brown over the entire table. I forgot to take pictures of the brown, but I’m sure you get the point. Then a few coats of White. The blue is called Tropical oasis, the brown was oak barrel, and the white was Wedding Carriage. After the final coat was completely set up I went over the edges and corners with 80 and 120 grit sandpaper to show some of the other colors and a little bare
wood. Next I just have to give the whole thing few coats of poly urethane.
