The table is a great big, farmhouse looking coffee table. Nice chunky legs and a thick wood top. However, it had a country vibe going on with its red base and the top had been heavily used throughout the years by her kids and needed a fix.
Christin just had new flooring installed in her family room and painted her fireplace brick in white. She is adding a white slipcovered sofa into the room and the entire feel will be light and bright. We wanted to give it a makeover that would tie in with her new color scheme.
We decided on Annie Sloan Duck Egg for the base of the table. It took a few coats to cover the red and then I distressed and waxed it. The top was sanded all the way back and stained in Varathane Dark Walnut with Weathered Wood added as a touch of gray. We decided to make the top darker and so I am working on that today. I think I’m going to sand it back again and go with General Finishes Java Gel. I’ll share the updated top tomorrow! Until then, here is the table now. I really love the new look!
