This Table is made out of Poplar. I’m trying to master paint finishes. This is my 3rd try.

Impressive. I’d have swore it was marble.

Well if you painted the table top I’d say you do have it mastered. In any case great job. Did you just spray on latex? I use a vinyl undercoat with a conversion varnish final coat. I’m quite happy with it.

Dennis is right. That’s a fantastic faux-stone finish. :-)

I love the table.

Kev, I think you can stop: ”... trying to master paint finishes.” I’d say you have already done it. Look awesome.

Hi Kev;

I think you should start over.

That doesn’t even look like wood! lol

VERY nice faux work.

Great looking table! At first I thought this was another one of those stone or metal posts sneeking into our wood forum. ;2D
