Cute little table transformation

Thanks to the Eilene and Melanie at Trezhers gift shop in Sacramento California, I had this cute little table to transform. I have had it here at the house for quite a while because I hadn't formed a vision of the project in my head (usually a prerequisite for my creative process.) Well, a few weeks ago, I worked it all out in my mind and started to bring my idea to life. I took photos as I went so you can see the steps I went through to make it whimsically cute. :)
Before picture and all I've done is sanded it. 

You can tell that it was chippy, but not in a good way. :)

Here it is with it's little legs in the air as I started covering it with  Kilz

with another layer of kilz

And another!

I carefully painted a layer of solid color on each part and then went over that with some cool metallic paint. 

All finished
