Refurbished Wood Coffee Table

DIY, inexpensive crafts, dollar store, cheapHello, lovely crafters! In this blog post, I am going to show you how to refurbish a wood coffee table. This is part one of two. In the second part, I will show you how to take your newly refurbished table and create a bottle cap table.

Total cost: $26..not to shabby!

What you need:

1. A coffee table with a lip on it. I found the perfect one in my garage that was awaiting its death. It came in a set of four; it was super ugly and covered in spiderwebs.

Price: Free!

2. Sand paper. I hand sanded mine with 100 (medium) grit. The higher the number, the finer the paper is, which is what you want.

Price: $3

3. Spray paint. I started using the left over spray paint I had from the porcelain pottery craft I did but then ran out which meant I had to go back to the store and buy more. Pick any color you want, I used flat white indoor/outdoor.

Price: $7×2 cans = $14. I also used two different Michel’s coupons, so I go each can for about $4.

4. Painters tape, if you plan of taping off any part of your table.

Price: $7

Steps to follow:

1. Sand your table to remove any finish. This is going to take some time and patients, but it is a much-needed step. Put some elbow grease into it, girl!

2. Tape off any parts of your table you don’t want to paint. I taped off the top of my table with a Kroger paper bag and painters tape.

3. Paint away! I applied about four layers of paint to my table (its kind of addicting). The pairing process took about four hours total. Make sure you follow the dry times on the paint you are using.

4. Remove the tape and voilà! You have given new life to a bland table!
