Hello Awesome Friends! Are ya’ll up for a makeover today? I’m actually sharing a makeover of a makeover ha ha!
This is the second makeover for this rather dated coffee table:
I originally found this at a yard sale for $15. One of our themes for Themed Furniture Thursday at that time was “Pottery Barn Knock-offs”, and this was a bit similar to the Tivoli coffee table by PB, so it got a sleek black makeover:
I had decided that I would share this for TFT then paint it white and send it to the shop, but I liked it in the black and thought someone else might also. I put it in the shop as is, but alas, I was wrong. So wrong.
Honestly if you’ve seen my booth space, you know it stuck out like a sore thumb, and I should have known better.
After several months I brought it home where it sat in my garage for several more months. I have done such a good job at getting through most of the furniture in my to-do pile (notice I haven’t mentioned it at all lately?), so I decided to tackle this.
This time, I went for more of a coastal feel:
The addition of this fun graphic adds the touch of coastal…
You might remember this…it is the same graphic I created for this tray I shared over the Summer…
That tray only lasted a couple of days in my booth, so I thought maybe that same magic would happen for this table too. Poor thing, it really deserves a break!
The top is painted in a 50/50 mix of Annie Sloan’s French Linen and Behr’s Ultra Pure White (DIY Chalk Paint). I really love this soft neutral tone.
It pairs so nicely with the white base.
I love it in front of my DIY slip covered sectional. Unfortunately it would have to be square to work with my sectional. I have the piece that butts up against that right side pushed out of the way for photos. Sometimes I miss having separate pieces.
I used my silhouette machine and contact paper to add the graphic:
I have this machine HERE (affiliate) if you want to add it to your Christmas list. 😉
I love how it makes adding words so easy! If you don’t have a machine, you can use the methods shown HERE to add graphics as well.
I used my DIY chalk paint and a smallish brush to paint three coats, then removed the contact paper when the paint was barely dry so it didn’t smudge anywhere.
I touched up any boo boo areas (there are almost always boo boo areas!), and sanded lightly after the boo boo fixes were dry. A coat of Annie Sloan’s clear wax to seal finishes this table off.
You can see I still have my Fall mantel up…I am so looking forward to pulling out my Christmas decorations! We are hosting Thanksgiving this year so I don’t feel like I can bust out the jingle bells just yet.
We actually tried out our new oil-less turkey fryer yesterday to give it a test run. I didn’t even know they made such a thing until I went online to search for a turkey fryer. We bought this one from Char-Broil on Amazon because it got great reviews, and it is awesome!! It hooks up to your propane tank, and no oil needed! It was so tender and juicy! And that allows me put my hubby in charge of the turkey, so one less thing for me! (He he)
I also tried a recipe for creamy mashed potatoes that go in the crockpot, and they turned out pretty good too! Trying to cut down on the stress of it all. 🙂
Back to this vintage cutie of a table…
I changed out the hardware for some I had left over from other pieces. They got a couple of coats of Rustoleum spray paint in Satin White. I find the easiest way to shabby them up is to drop them on my concrete garage floor and drag them across the floor a bit.
And that’s it!
Much better! Here’s hoping it sells this time! You can see my full tutorial for how to paint furniture using chalk paint HERE.
