Coffee Table Makeover

It seems to be table makeover time here in south Mississippi.   After brightening up my kitchen table, I decided it was time to do the same to my coffee table.

Here is the before.


I really like the shape/size of it, and it was gorgeous in my all-black-furniture apartment in grad school. 

But it is time for an update.  The paint had been scuffed during several moves, and I'm always in the mood for a change.

No secret techiques or tricks though.  I just put two coats of white paint on it, which was just enough to wash the black away but still let a little peak through for a weathered look (which luckily, my husband loves).

I used the same no-sew technique here to whip up a miniature table runner out of yellow toile and light green burlap.

Rush supervised. I guess Amos had the day off.

The table only cost $30 at a junk/antique shop, so it's going to make the rounds with me for a long time!


  1. Another fun transformation, Kelly! Love that toile!
