I used Behr Black Onyx semi-gloss paint to refinish this girl and Rustoleum brass spray paint for the hardware. I had the burlap already.
Here is how I did it using my cute little side table as my model.
You'll need 180 grit sandpaper, paintbrush, painters tape, Mod Podge, and black paint
Take your measurements and cut your burlap to size. Dry fit it on the table.
Once the burlap fits well, put a thick coat of Mod Podge on the table top.
Fold your burlap and starting at the top smooth it down from the middle out and top down.
Those creases will work themselves out and just keep pressing on them as it dries.
Wait until this dries before adding your top coats or your burlap might move. I put on three top coats. Lightly sand in between using 180 grit sandpaper.
Do not worry about those stray threads until you are all done with your top coats. Then cut them. If you cut them before you have sealed the burlap, it will unravel.
Now tape your edges and press the inside edge down firmly.
Add your inside rectangle. I just eyeballed this. Press the outside edge down firmly.
Super cute distraction!! How can you resist?!?
Using the same paint as the body of your piece, paint inside the tape.
The reason you do this after the topcoats and not before is because it limits the bleed under the taped edge
My model table finished!
My roadside rescue redone
So Recap: Before...
