Coffee Table Make-Overs at The Treasured Home September 15, 2014
Do you have a loving relationship with your coffee table?
Everything in this room is an antique, or at least vintage, except for the sofa, pillows and window coverings. While the sofa cost me a year’s allowance, the coffee table was purchased at an estate sale, for next to nothing.
In any living or family…great room…the coffee table is an important anchor. The size, shape and “weight” of the piece, should be in proportion to the rest of the furniture pieces.
This coffee table, was originally pale yellow, with a significant shine and some notable chips on the edge and top of the table. But I loved those legs!
The table first and foremost, needed a paint job. I was just concerned about filling the nicks and recreating a perfectly smooth surface. So I took the path of least resistance and purposely textured the table top, with embossing cream. The table ended up with a fairly flat finish and I’m happy with the finished product.
