Welcome to another fabulous month of inspiration from the Decor Enthusiast Style team!
You know we adore thrift stores so this month it’s all about decorating with……..
Thrift Store Finds!
Many of you may know, but I just staged our most recent flip house with lots of thrift store goodies.
I am sharing one of those with you today…..
Thrift Store Coffee Table Makeover
I paid less than $10 for it. I’m sure it originally had glass on the top. The veneer was peeling off and looked really bad. It would have been time-consuming to get all of it up. I didn’t have time for that! You see…..I was staging the very next day, and I was down to the wire.
I worked like a mad woman for 3 weeks.
This was such an easy project. Thanks goodness because when I got to the top, I was working in the garage at 11pm that night!
Sorry for the late night, fuzzy cell photo. I cut thin strips of pine project boards from Lowes to create a plank effect.
They were simple to cut with a hand saw.
Let’s rewind a bit and go through the process!
- clean the table
- lightly sand any really rough areas (not much of this)
- paint the base (I sprayed mine)
- distress the base
- seal the base
- cut the project boards for planks
- sand the project boards
- apply a pre-stain treatment to planks
- stain with Polyshades which has a built-in sealer
- adhere the planks to the top with Liquid Nails or wood glue

The slip covered settee was also a thrift store find and my first attempt at a slip cover!
