Coffee Table Makeover (without Paint!)

274,057 Views
My mom made over her plain ol' pine coffee table with steel wool.
Use painters tape to tape off a design. Anything goes, but straight lines will be the easiest. My mom did a checkerboard pattern, which I love.
Then use your steel wool to create your design. Check out my blog post for tips and tricks to get the lines straight and pretty!
Here are a few more tools that are helpful when creating your design with steel wool. It's fair to note that just because there is not paint or stain involved does not mean this is a mess free project! It's messy, y'all!

    This is absolutely beautiful! I would have never thought just sanding would do such an amazing job. Cool.
