Today is the day……Themed Furniture Makeover Day!
This month's theme is Two Tone.
I'm sharing my Farmhouse Coffee Table Makeover.
It's a simple change that really helped to brighten the rather dark space.
I only painted the base to give this table a fresh new look.
Below you will find all the other two toned furniture projects from my monthly group! Be sure to visit them all!
Here it is in place before I painted it.
Disclaimer: This is a playroom that the kids are in charge of cleaning! It's not the most styled place in the house.
Here is a full before. This is a great table. Back when I was still teaching elementary school, I had a once per week cleaning lady. Such a sweet lady. Her husband loved to do woodworking. She was always asking if he could make me something. One day, I took her up on it. I commissioned him to build me a farmhouse styled coffee table. It is heavy and well-made. The stain is not my favorite, but I love it!
It looks so fresh now!
I painted just the base in a custom mix of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White with a touch of Pure White.
I applied 3 coats.
I distressed in random areas paying more attention to the edges.
I vacuumed up the sanding dust with the hand-held attachment.
I then applied 1 coat of clear wax and buffed to a slight sheen.
I love it!!!
New furniture is not an option.
It has kind of sparked me wanting to do a few other changes.
The love seat has a denim slipcover. The love seat was my mom's from the early 70s.
I'd love to add a denim cover to the couch and change-up the pillows with some quick envelope pillows.
Crazy how painting a coffee table can create more projects!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you're inspired!
