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!

  1. clean the table
  2. lightly sand any really rough areas (not much of this)
  3. paint the base (I sprayed mine)
  4. distress the base
  5. seal the base
  6. cut the project boards for planks
  7. sand the project boards
  8. apply a pre-stain treatment to planks
  9. stain with Polyshades which has a built-in sealer
  10. adhere the planks to the top with Liquid Nails or wood glue

  1. Thanks! They came out of a model apartment from a complex my husband purchased. They are mismatched, but 2 are Pottery Barn. I’d try Surefit!

  2. I love the makeover! It looks amazing. I need to see if I can find a little coffee table to make over now.

  3. Will show daughter table. Love it!! Love the chair covers. May i ask where you purchased?

  4. The table looks great! I definitely pinned it for inspiration. Now I just need to find a great deal like that one too.

  5. The boards you added to the top just make this little table!! Perfect! And love the color you painted too! 🙂
