I have seen a couple of beautiful coffee tables pop in in blogland, inspired by my French Chocolate coffee table. I would love to highlight these in a post, so if you’re making one, be sure and send me a picture!
I am busy getting ready for Bella’s Vintage Market, and since I decided I was keeping the original coffee table, I decided to create another one (or two).
I loved the square shape and chunky legs of this table, to it had to come home with me.
Note: I didn't worry about getting a perfectly uniform surface. I wanted this to look like it was made over from an old crate or sign or something, so the imperfections in the finish are fine with me!
I think this particular ad makes even less sense in English.
I don’t care; it looks good!
I distressed the lettering, then stained the top with a two-layer approach of Minwax English Chestnut followed by Antique Walnut Stain. The bottom I painted in Behr Ultra Pillar White (at least, I’m pretty sure that’s what it was), and glazed it.
…and…Voila! (that’s French, right??)
I also replaced the boring wooden knob with a pretty bin pull.
I still like the chunky legs…how come we only say that about tables and babies??
What do you think?
Linking up to these great parties here.
