If you follow me on social media you may remember last month that I mentioned I was being gifted a few furniture pieces. It turns out it was more pieces than I photographed. As soon as I received word that these pieces were headed to my home the wheels in my head began to spin with ideas on how I would this coffee and end tables makeover.
What you may not know is that for a few years I opted not to have a coffee table in the living room because my children would use the area to play interactive video games that required room for running in place, jumping, etc. Now that they’re older and spend very little time in the living room I can resume decorating. You have no idea how exciting this is for me!
I was a little nervous because this was the first time I painted anything outside of shelves on my own. My husband usually tackles these types of projects for me. But I was determined to do it all on my own. I began by searching Google to find out how to paint wood laminate furniture. After making sure, I understood the process I was confident I could tackle this project on my own.
What I used:
- Painter’s Touch Ultra Cover Primer
- Rust-Oleum Satin Black Protective Enamel
- Chip Brush
- Paint Roller
- Paint Roller Covers for smooth surfaces
- Paint Tray (not shown)
- Drop Cloth (not shown)
Last weekend I got to work making over the coffee table and two end tables. The three pieces were still in excellent (with the exception of dust and dirt from being transported). So I began by wiping all the pieces down with a solution of vinegar and water.
I must say that I love how the tables turned out! Below I will share some of the before, during, and after photos of the makeover.
I added a few thrifty details to style the top of the coffee table… a black serving tray that I got on clearance at Home Goods, a little gold bird and gold crackle finished pumpkin from Marshall’s and the foe leaves, candle, DIY candle holders, and orange and white pumpkins found at my local Dollar Tree.
And that’s pretty much all for today. Thanks so much for stopping by! Let me know what you think in the comments below.
