  1. The chess table was in a good condition and only needed a good sanding to remove the varnish. When sanding varnish from wood, use a fine grade of sandpaper to prevent the wood from being scratched. Wipe it with a damp cloth to clean off any sanding dust.
  2. Paint the legs and the top with white paint. I used an acrylic paint and a small foam roller for a smooth finish. Apply two to three coats. Between each coat, leave the paint to dry, gently sand it with a fine sandpaper and wipe away any dust with a damp cloth before applying the next layer.
  3. Use a circle paper punch and punch enough small circles to cover the whole top surface of the table. I used two different color and texture papers to form a chess board. Use wood glue to paste the paper circles onto the wooden top.
