Beachy Coffee Table

When my neighbors gave me their old coffee table, I knew just what I would do with it.


After a quick sand, I sprayed on a mistint from Lowes.


A bit of distressing was all it needed.  I had to keep myself in check~ I can go a little crazy on the distressing sometimes almost always, and I didn't want to spend a ton of time on this project!  :)


I wiped on and then off some stain in Golden Oak~
It really warmed the paint color up and recovered the places I had sanded to bare wood while I was distressing.


For protection, I sprayed on a couple coats of polycrilic I found in my paint cupboard.


Before~


All ready to go~









Enjoy your day!  :)

It looks great! I love all the drawers. Question....do you mix the stain with a glaze or put it on directly? Keep up the good work!

I love it! It looks much better with it's makeover. I love that it has drawers for storage. I have a huge storage problem in our home.

The coffee table turned out great! I am looking for something just like this for our coast house! I will have to keep an eye out now knowing how great it could look.
