My New Coffee Table

Remember this red beauty?

Ok.  Not really a beauty but she’s got great bones and is super sturdy.

Look at her now.

Say what?  You’re distracted by the big red lump on the couch?

It’s ok.  The cuteness is pretty distracting.  (They were tuckered out from partridge hunting).

Back to my coffee table.  I stripped the top, sanded it down and gave it some love with Kona by Rust-Oleum (stain).  The base got a coat of primer and 2 coats of Sea Salt by Behr.  I then distressed and gave the entire piece a polycrylic top coat.

The new handles are an Oil Rubbed Bronzed finish.  I got them on Ebay.  (The Knob Shop – I use them a lot.  Great prices and a great selection.)

When I finally put the table in place, I realized I should have checked the height FIRST.  It was about 6 inches too tall.  T hacked the legs down for me and now we have perfection.

It’s great to finally have a place to put up our feet!  The drawers are an added bonus to hide coloring books and crayons for the kids.

One more project completed.  A gazillion left to go!

Thanks Kelly and Kellie! We've been loving it - not just for our feet but we've been doing puzzles and coloring on it a ton. And I have a small spot to work a bit which keeps the kids content having me within eyesight. So much awesome all over a little table. :-)
