Here is a coffee table that I have upcycled, found this beauty on Facebook market and thought it had so much potential. I knew I want to remove all the old stain and brought it back to its original colour.
I started by sanding the whole table to its original raw colour and discovered a beautiful timber under it. To add a bit more of a modern and interesting look I painted the bottom part in black and the final touch the beautiful black leather and gold handles. And to protect the top counting I just added a clear stain colour.
List of products used:
- Lane Black Leather Handle
- White Knight Black Satin Water-Based Splashes Interior Paint
- Sanding paper started with 40 grid and finish with 60 grid
- Timber Protect Satin One Coat Clear Water Based Varnish
Hope you all enjoy this little DIY - Check out the before and after below
