Janel had an old round table that was just crying out for a makeover. After some careful thought and consideration, she decided to cover the entire table with Rub’n’Buff. At that point the table took on a beautiful burnished gold tone, but Janel wasn’t finished.

Janel decided to cover the top of the table with a compass rose, and she decided to create that pattern herself rather than using a stencil! Her method is simple enough even for the mathematically challenged among us, and the end result is a beautiful addition to any room.
