Table Transformation

Several months ago I found this little coffee table on Craigslist. I liked the claw feet, the fact that it came with a glass top, and the cheap price, but it took me several months to get around to deciding what to do with it. Then, one weekend I picked up a paint color I liked and got to work.


This project went so well, and so quickly, that I was too excited to remember to take pictures! Here’s the after shot though!

I primed the whole thing with heavy duty primer, then two coats of the blue paint on the bottom and black on the top. A quick sanding and a coat of stain distressed the fresh paint.

The veneer that had held the glass on at one time was long ago removed, so I was very glad to find this pressed metal that I could just nail in.

It’s a little short now for our new sofa, but I’m still a big fan of our new/old coffee table!
