Today I've got a cute coffee table makeover to share with you. I love it when projects fall into my lap, and this coffee table is one of them!
A friend of mine had just moved and asked me to paint this coffee table to match her other furniture. She wanted it a glossy black to match her new dining set and TV stand. AND she wanted NO distressing.
Before I go on I must confess that there was a time in my life when, I would go buy a new piece of furniture before thinking about changing what I already have. I would've went to Target or wherever I could find a cheap coffee table to get me by. And I would've thrown this out.
Buutttt…redoing this coffee table was probably a better option in the long run. Why? Well, A) it only cost me about $10 to redo it and b) it has more character now than it would if it was Target bought.
And if you are on a tight budget, or just not in the mood to go spend a few hundred dollars on a new coffee table, this is a great alternative!
If you are wondering how to makeover your coffee table on the cheap…here it is:
I found a $5 gallon of black “oops” paint at Menards. It was a flat black but I knew I was going to put a glossy polycrylic over the top for protection, so….non-issue!
And like I said, I put the polycryclic over the whole thing. I did three layers on the top for added protection.
And that’s it!
