Outdoor End Table

i am so excited to post this! i've had this hideous end table for about a year and i just didn't know what to do with it...we have been using it on our porch to hold the stereo...i've been so ashamed of it but just couldn't throw it out...i would have loved to have a bright cheery color but my family makes fun of my "colors"...

here it is with the stereo...such a nice stereo to be sitting on such a junky piece...
here is a better look before i got started...
after the 1st coat...i used rustoleum ultra coverage in oregano...it says it bonds to plastic...believe it or not that front piece with the design on it is plastic...i chose spray paint over brushing because this piece was not in good shape at all...it would have to be repaired with some trim work, wood putty, and a lot of time...i've never spray painted a piece before...now i know why so many people do it..i would have never finished this today if i would have brushed it on...nor, would i have come out so cheap...around $4 for this can of paint..
finished product...i am so happy with the outcome...it was quick and easy..i think this matches my set perfect...
