Pedestal Table Makeover
Use cabinet paint on all types of wood surfaces for the most durable and long-lasting finish.
A pedestal table with a plain Jane look gets a fresh coat of paint using Benjamin Moore's new Kitchen Cabinet Coat paint in a lavender shade called, Snugglepuss. The Cabinet Coat paint has a lustrous shine like lacquer and a most intensely durable coated finish. Less than a quart of paint has recast this piece as a contemporary item. Best of all this paint comes in a huge array of colors.
Time of project start to finish: 2 hours.
