Upcycled coffee table

IMG_3416.jpeg

 

Hello Everyone,

 

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 :smile: - Check out the before and after below

Hello @lifestylebymari

 

Thank you so much for sharing this amazing upcycle project! What a fantastic transformation, the leather handles just finish it off so well. The black bottom trim is such a clever idea. Your choice of the satin finish just gives it such an elegant look. Thank you for sharing the photos and materials you used. I'm sure our members appreciate you sharing the steps you took to get such a beautiful result.

 

We look forward to seeing your next creation.
