    Some steps may require several coats. Allow to fully dry between steps.

    1. Sand the entire exterior and interior of the record table and remove the handles.
    2. Instruction #1
    3. Paint the exterior in Artifact and the interior in Victorian.
    4. Instruction #2
    5. Paint the entire exterior in Soft Silver, allow to dry. Use a waxing brush and the Soft Silver to add a brushed metal look to both side panels and the top of the record table, leaving the trim as is.
    6. Instruction #3
    7. Repeat the previous step on the border of the door panels and on the inside of each door panel.
    8. Instruction #4
    9. Paint the interior in Amethyst.
    10. Instruction #5
    11. Use the pattern provided and tracing paper to draw the Harlequin print on the door panels. Painters tape will help keep the pattern and tracing paper in place. Use a level to make sure the pattern is straight and a ruler to trace the lines and ensure they are clean.
    12. Instruction #6
    13. Use a small brush and Amethyst to fill in the Harlequin print. This may require several coats. Have another brush on hand to dip in water and clean up the area as you go. Finally, attach your handles to the door panels (the original door handles here were swapped for handles that were more whimsical).
