  1. Remove hardware from the drawers and set aside. Lightly sand surface and wipe clean with a damp cloth.
  2. If the wood is unpainted or has been painted a dark color, you may want to use Rust-Oleum® Painter's® Touch Ultra Cover 2X Primer Spray. Be sure to spray outdoors and away from important items -- like your son's new bike. Use drop cloths or old sheets to protect the ground or floor.
  3. Once dry, tape off the base of the table. (You're going to be painting this later, so don't worry about having a perfect tape job.)
  4. Spray on the base coat from the American Accents® Crackle Creations Kit and allow to dry per can directions.
  5. Following can directions, spray on the crackle top coat contained in the kit.
  6. Once dry, tape off the top and cover with newspaper or plastic wrap. Brush on American Accents® Satin Finishes in Canyon Black paint on the base of the table following re-coat and dry times on can.
  7. For extra protection from wear and tear, coat the top with a Rust-Oleum® Painter's® Touch Ultra Cover 2X Matte Clear Spray. Be sure to follow re-coat directions on the can ... paint can be picky.
  8. Move away from the table and spray any hardware with the Rust-Oleum® Universal® Metallic Spray Paint in Pure Gold. Allow to dry completely before re-attaching to the table.
  9. Put your new table in its new special place and top with a vase of seasonal flowers or other bright accents.
