Step 1: Lay out all of the metal pieces and spray paint gold. I recommend two coats! Let sit to dry at least 24 hours.
Step 2: To achieve the marble effect on the bottom part of the table, purchase some craft or wrapping paper to cover the plain white base. The one I used has a sticker backing so I applied it slowly and carefully and wrapped the excess around the bottom.
Step 3: Assemble the table. I didn’t screw the bottom piece in so that I can easily take the table apart to refresh the spray paint if needed.
