Oh my gosh you guys. I’m so excited to jump on the blog today and share with you my DIY Refinished Coffee Table. On the weekend my bestie and I drove down Island to try and find a coffee table. I did find one, but with a price tag of over 500.00 after taxes & I just couldn’t stomach that.
I went home feeling a bit defeated as I had already exhausted looking on Craigslist, Marketplace and other second hand sites. The next morning I checked one last time on Marketplace and a coffee table that I somehow missed, appeared. Below I’m attaching the coffee table I wanted and the coffee table that was for sale.
As soon as I got the coffee table home, I unscrewed the top so I could strip the finish off, and I immediately spray painted the legs. The legs took two coats of spray paint.
The top took about 35 minutes to completely strip down to the bare wood, and it was a bit too orange for me still, so I took 1 TBLS of white paint to 1 cup of water and white washed it. I left it for about five minutes and then wiped it off like a stain.
Here is the finished result:
Let me know what you think of my DIY refinished coffee table. I’m pretty in love and I actually think it turned out better than the original 500.00 one I liked.
I hope this inspires you to see the beauty in ‘old junk’ and before you spend money, try your hand at refinishing something in your home.
If you like this DIY, I would be honoured if you pinned it to Pinterest!
Hope you’re having a great week and don’t forget to check back on Thursday for my Spring Home Walk Through!
