    Let dry completely between painting steps.

    1. Choose a table that is made of real wood and has clean straight lines to emphasize the edges once painted. Use a sander to remove any finish from the table.
    2. Instruction #1
    3. Using a flat brush, apply Pure White to all but the top of the tables.
    4. Instruction #2
    5. To add a graphic detail to the tabletop, use painter's tape to create a frame. (For simplicity, I used the tape as width (1-1/2") so no measuring was required. I placed one piece of tape along the outside edge of the table and then a piece of tape marking the width of the frame. A third length of tape created the inside border.) Remove the middle piece tape, and clean up the corners with a ruler and a craft knife.
    6. Instruction #3
    7. Make sure the edges of the tape are adhered, and go over the frame with Seaside Blue. If desired, paint an element on the legs in the same color.
