This table was first cleaned and then lightly sanded! I then sprayed a coat of Rust-Oleum Metallic Outdoor Finish on the entire table. Once the Metallic Finish dried I hand painted the table using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Graphite. Prior to the Graphite drying, I rubbed back specific areas to create a 3-D look. The entire piece was then sealed with Rust-Oleum Chalked Finish sealant (non-yellowing) and then again with outdoor Rust-Oleum sealant (non-yellowing) in a matte finish to protect it from the outdoor climate.
