This is the beautiful detail that I love on this set. I could not turn it away after I noticed it!
Refinished Coffee Table Set
I found this table set at a local garage sale, and I knew it would need some serious love because the family that I bought it from had three young children, and they had shown the tables a lot of love. With that being said, I felt like I could not turn them down, I loved the detail below the table top.
The tops of each table had seen better days. They were peeling, covered in stickers and small drops of nail polish. Typical well loved table set from a family with curious kids.
I started by giving the table tops a light sanding with a hand sander.
I used a 160 grit piece of sand paper, and a lot of arm muscle.
I loved the curved detail. It adds a little more character than just a typical rectangle or oval.
I flipped the tables upside down so they would lay flat on the top that way I would use less paint tape and less time taping. I don't know about you, but I despise taping.
This Minwax Gel Stain is my go-to for all of my projects that I want to have a durable top. This stain adds a nice top coat layer, helps hide blemishes, and gives a clean finished look.
The table tops got two coats of Minwax Gel Stain.
The complete finished product compliments the details well without taking away from it.
I love the matte black chalk paint and how to contrasts with the dark brown top.~
