So, I shared my DIY Coffee Table with you all a few days ago and now I’m back to share how I finished it!
I love the size, the functionality and the “old” look….. and the fact that it only cost me $40 to build!!!
I started by painting the legs with a favorite ~ Rust-Oleum Heirloom White spray paint.
Next, I stained the top of the table with two coats of Minwax Dark Walnut Stain. I painted it on with a foam brush, let it sit for about 15 minutes, wiped it off with an old cloth and repeated after 24 hours.
After another 24 hours I painted on 1 coat of Minwax Polycrylic Gloss with a Purdy brush.
To achieve a more “worn” look, I used my 3M sanding block to distress the edges of all of the legs…
and I followed up with a bit of Minwax Dark Walnut stain on the distressed edges. Yes, I am doing this over my carpet. I was so anxious to get the table in the house that I forgot to distress it:)
Ahh! I LOVE it:) This is where I do all of my blogging:)
Room for decor, my laptop, coffee and toys of course!
And, in case you get a crazy urge to “sit on a coffee table”….
Christy, this one’s for you;) No creaking, wobbling, swaying…. Nope, this table is built SOLID!
Thanks so much for stopping by:)
