I know that I just shared my farmhouse dinner table project with you, and I know that you may be wondering if I have absolutely gone mad?! And that may be as, I seriously cannot stop. Paint and varnish have taken over my life and my home and I kind of like it!
This project was very simple. I used up most of the paint from the table and chair project. I scored this coffee table from The Salvation Army at a low price of $12. I knew when I picked it up that I would paint it, but like everything else I own, it took me this long to figure out what color. Thank you, Pinterest.
Materials I used:
You can see that the table was in excellent condition when I got it. The top and sides had some wear but nothing too exciting. I wasn’t planning on sanding and re-staining the top, but as I began the project, that soon changed.
I sanded the top first with 80 grit sandpaper and a hand sander. Then, cleared it of any dust.
After the sanding, I put two coats of white paint on the bottom and a coat of stain on the top. Finally, I used the hand sander with the 80 grit on it to scuff it in areas that would assume natural wear to give it some distressing.
Here she is! In all of her glory! This project took me maybe 3 hours! With good ventilation and a good breeze, a project like this happens so quickly!
sI hope you enjoyed my little series of fixer upper posts! I have a few more coming your way and a Farmhouse sign that is to die for!
Today consist of finishing up some projects and maybe rearranging my coffee bar! I hope everyone has an amazing Sunday and your Monday be filled with lots of coffee and love!
