Until then, I wanted to share my coffee table makeover. When my boyfriend was moving out of his bachelor pad and into our love nest, he found an unclaimed coffee table. Since there had been several bachelors come and go over the years, someone had simply left it behind.I have a love for all things abandoned plus you can't beat free... so off to its new home it went! I was so happy with my new free coffee table that I forgot to take a before picture but the picture above is pretty close.
It had several scratches and dings from its wild bachelor days so I had to give it a good sand and priming. I am considering painting my kitchen cabinets which are laminate so I thought this would be a good project to try out Melamine paint.
I learnt that the paint took forever to dry but boy is it durable! I wanted the table to go nicely with my beachy bar stools so I didn't do any distressing. I finished it by lightly sanding and varathaning.
I also wanted to say thank you to all of my readers. It honestly means SO much to me when I read and hear your comments and words of encouragement. Thanks!
