The “Painted Hive” Coffee Table

Last fall I was contacted by Shelby, who was interested in having me re-do a coffee table for her. She wondered, “Had I ever seen the round table at The Painted Hive?”

Have I ever!

Kristine’s beautiful furniture makeovers are an integral part of my Pinterest “Great Furniture” folder!

Shelby brought me this lovely coffee table which she had found on KSL.com, and asked me to refinish it ala “Painted Hive,” although slightly less distressed.

The base was painted in a Behr Ultra paint color-matched to Sherwin-Williams “Creamy” paint. The top is stained with three coats of Minwax Antique Walnut stain, and then I hand-distressed and glazed the base to bring a little “age” to the piece.

I love the way the white shelf looks on the bottom!

Shelby also brought me this little pine table to get a similar makeover.

She planned on replacing the knob herself, so her it sits—knobless…

…but I think it will be a great complement to the “Painted Hive” coffee table!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Great job, Korrie! I love it!

Sherri said...

What an absolutely awesome job you did on both pieces!! You have given me some ideas, especially the coffee table!!

Rachel said...

What I love most about the bottom shelves of both pieces is that neither one will show the dust as much. Then again...... maybe everyone else is better at dusting than I am..... ;) I just know my bottom shelf of my table sees a fair amount of dust....

Becca said...

Love the tables- hers and the one you did!!

Absolutely gorgeous. I have done a table similar to this one too. Love the stained top and light base. I think Costco sold millions of them, and they all need transforming!
