Our friend Lacey had a coffee table that she wanted us to redo. She had already given the table a makeover with chalk paint and it looked great. Unfortunately, it had water damage on the top which caused the wood to bubble up and the table actually had a mold spot underneath. She liked the way our rustic coffee table looked like, so we created a similar design for her!
Here, you can see the water damage to the original table top. We were excited to get started making a new top for the table!
This is the first ever furniture project that we took on and it’s the reason we’re now addicted to redoing anything we can! This table was being discarded when people moved out of their apartment so we decided to pick it up. Unfortunately, I don’t have a full picture of the table, but you can see the base above. The top of the table was the same color that you see above, but it had lots of bubbles and damage from water. Actually, we think the damage was from beer because the whole table reeked of it! After we cleaned it up, took it apart, sanded, painted the bottom and stained the top, we had ourselves a beautiful, modern yet rustic table and we both absolutely love it!
I can’t wait to share this DIY project with you because it is the most practical project we have ever done. I know not everyone is a cat lover, but if you do have a cat, this post is a must-read!
For a long time, Adam and I have wanted to try using copper in one of our furniture redos. We decided to try it on Adam’s old bedside table. We love the result of the hammered copper finish!
We found a coffee table that was being thrown away and it was in pretty bad shape, but we knew we could do something fun with it. I came up with the plan of painting a bold herringbone pattern on the table top and we chose white and gray for the paint colors because those were colors we already had. I love the way the table turned out!
Adam and I decided to redo my old coffee table last weekend. We had an idea to sand the top, hand scrape it with chisels and restain it. When we went to refinish the top, we realized it wasn’t actually real wood, which meant we couldn’t use it–so disappointing! We changed direction and decided to make our own custom table top and we ended up with this beautiful oversized, rustic table.
