Layers of Farmhouse White Ornate Vintage Coffee Table
Farmhouse white is soo popular right now and I get it. It is a classic look that can go in any color scheme. This ornate vintage coffee table has been made over in shades of farmhouse white. Let's see how.
First step is to lightly power sand the top then scrub the entire solid wood coffee table inside and out using a good cleaner like simply green, warm water and a cloth after removing the hardware. This will allow the paint to stick well.
I used a shade of white milk paint called sand for the first layer brushing on two coats.
Next I painted on a layer of oyster white milk paint, then Rustoleum linen white was dry brushed over the first 3 layers. There are videos to help with this and the waxing stages on my detailed blog tutorial.
Once all the paint layers are dry the entire coffee table was sanded smooth, lightly distressed on the edges and then the rustoluem clear protective coat brushed on.
To bring out the details black wax was brushed on in all the nooks and crannies then the hardware put back on after a good scrubbing to bring back the original shine.
And the vintage piece now has a complete new look for many years to come. Are you a fan?
The coffee table is all fresh but still has the vintage vibe.

This is just my idea if I were redoing this table; I’d remove the 6 (3 on each side) smaller side spindles and add very small & low feet on the bottom to lift the table just a tiny bit. And I’d paint the knobs black simply because I think the gold is just a tad overpowering. That’s just me. I’m glad you redid the table and kept it. So many people would throw vintage pieces like this away. The white looks so clean and fresh and gives it a modern look.
