I decided to paint my pool table this weekend after having the idea of these branches and birds. I had a bit of trouble at first, but soon found a good way to achieve this effect. It works very well on flat surfaces with little bumps and doesn't cost much at all. I used contact paper with designs cut out and first tried spray painting it. This was a bad idea and ended up seeping through the edges. I found it works best to use a precision brush and carefully layer the exposed area. Latex paint worked well. It was pretty simple. I may add more to the table in the future. The great thing is if I ever get tired of it I can totally redo it.
