Yes, I have painted a coffee table. It had lovely classic lines when I saw it at a church sale, last fall, and it was priced so low I felt the need to rescue it despite the fact I rarely paint furniture. I have no before image but the top of it was sorely abused and had numerous white rings on it.
I actually painted it last fall and finally waxed it this weekend. You are envious of my speed I know. I was spurred on by the fact I had to get to my lawn mower and the table was in my way. I cut grass (mostly weeds) yesterday with the push mower.
I distressed the edge all around the circumference of the table. I will be selling it. I hope someone will want it anyway. Don't hang on the edge of your seats waiting for another project such as this because it is time to play with flowers.
joy and peace
