The Masculine Coffee Table
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I didn’t work very much, but enjoyed the nice weather instead… it was pretty awesome! I did want to share with you this coffee table I just finished on Friday, it is in perfect structural shape, but it needed a little TLC. I “won” it at auction and almost got it for free! After I got it home I found a plastic bag of British coins in one of the drawers! I gave them to my youngest girls as they seem to have a love for everything British… so they were thrilled!
Here is the sad coffee table before…
The brass cross bars have rust (or something) on them…
WOW! Check it out now! I think it has a lot more years left to give!
I primed and painted the base black using Valspar satin paint. I chose not to remove or replace the leather top, while it is not in perfect condition it is in good condition and I just love the way it looks on this table.
I sanded down the burled wood edging and stained it with Watco Dark Walnut stain… It was just to pretty to paint don’t you agree? I sealed it with Annie Sloan clear wax after the stain had dried.
After cleaning and priming the cross braces and wheel caps I sprayed them with Krylon gold paint… FABULOUS!
I also sanded, stained and waxed the drawer fronts to match the top of the table. I replaced the Victorian looking pulls with these Lion’s Head pulls… which I think really helps the overall look of the table!
I hope someone else likes the table too… It’s heading up the road with me to Lucketts!
As always thanks for stopping by… until next time!
