Happy Wednesday to all of you!! Are you freezing where you are??? Luckily for me, I am warm and cozy. AND, I have been busy with painting our room, craft cupboard and now a thrifted coffee table makeover.
We had company over the weekend, and I was able to back and just look at our home. I saw all of the work I have done of the past 3 1/2 years. I can honestly say, I am liking the look.
To see more of my living room, check out Jeanette’s blog Country Design Style. I was a guest on her blog yesterday, and gave a full tour of our living room. (Thanks Jeanette!!)
Looking mighty fine!!
Here is a quick picture of before and after.
Last week I went to REstore and found a flat antique white paint (super cheap, I might add!). It was the exact white I was looking for to paint my thrifted table. Definitely time for a makeover.
Using a dry brush and the flat antique white paint, I got to work. I painted over the majority of the table. Then with sand paper, I started on the next step.
I sanded in various areas on the table. Then I got a hammer and dented the top of the table. I know!! It was really fun to use the back end of my hammer and hit the table top. Plus, it gives the worn look I want.
The sanding is always fun, too. I like to see the various colors that come through around the corners and edges.
So here My Thrifted Coffee Table Makeover is in all it’s glory. Easy peasy and it only took about 2 hours to complete.
Not too bad, right??
Do you have a piece of furniture that you need and/or want to paint? I would love to hear all about it!!
Thanks for joining me today. I appreciate and read EVERY comment.
Make it a wonderful Wednesday.

Thanks so much sweet girl!!
Love the look.
Thanks Blondie. You are very sweet.
Hi Meegan – I like what you did with your coffee table – so much better now! I noticed you the rug I had been eyeing up for almost year waiting for it to go on sale. When it finally did, I couldn’t get it in my size anywhere :( Just love it and I’m so jealous. I did find a pretty alternate but it’s not THAT rug!
Thanks so much Marie! I am highly complimented that we have the same taste. It was THE rug for me, too. I looked for 3 years. :)
Ashley @ My Craftily Ever After says
This turned out so wonderful! I am always so afraid to distress!!!
Why, thanks so much Ashley!! Just give it a try and let me know what you think.
Hi Meehan. I also love the table and rug. Can you tell us where you got it?
Love it. Love the phone under it too. :) I just came across your blog and am truly enjoying it!
You asked if we had something to paint? I just painted my coffee table which turned out to be a major fail! lol… It’s not bad,just not what I intended. Check it out if you’d like…. https://buildingsandcastlesinthewind.blogspot.com/2014/01/so-painting-of-coffee-table-went-little.htm
