You guys I have been waiting to share with you my Coffee Table which I made with my own Two Hands okay not really Two maybe Four as I needed a little help from the husband.
I still can’t believe it is completed, not because it was complicated to make or anything but it had a lot of steps that had to be done before I could move onto the next. Alot of waiting games had to be played.
As you guys know I am part of The Fab Furniture Flippin Contest and this months sponsor is PureBond Hardwood Plywood who specialize in unique real wood and their products are beautiful, versatile and high quality, available in almost every wood veneer plus everything is manufactured and sourced in USA and Canada.
This months theme was the One Panel Challenge and I received this gorgeous piece of Wood. I ordered it in a size 2ft by 4ft, 3/4 inch thickness as I knew I would make it into a coffee table.
I stumbled upon these beautiful Agate Crystal Slices and from that point onwards I knew I had to incorporate it in my design someway somehow.
So I decided on a creating a Marbled Pattern. The top of the table was going to be split in three parts. Two of the sides would have the Marbled Patten and in the middle I would showcase the Agate Slices.
I taped off the middle completely with masking tape so I could work on the Marbling without having to worry about the paint staining the centre.
I chose a mix of blue, green, grey and gold paint colors.
Materials Needed for this Project
Automatic Hand Drill
Then I poured each paint one by one and moved the wood panel around to create the Marbled design.
Do the same thing on the other side, pour the paint, move it around and you should end up with some gorgeous marbling details.
I let it completely dry.
I removed the masking tape from the middle and glued on the Agate Slices.
I also added some glitter details on the table.
I mixed the glitter in with some Mod Podge to easily pour it on top of the table so to mimic the Marbling design.
I let both the glitter and Agate Slices dry for a day before I moved on to the next step.
My idea was to finish off the Table with Resin so the agate slices and paint would be sealed in completely but also give it an amazing Glass like finish.
But first I had to attach wood panels on all four sides so to create a barrier for the Resin so it would not spill out. This is where I needed some help from my husband and with some combination of screws and gorilla glue we actually did a decent job.
Now I had to wait for it to dry before I could pour over the Resin.
I used almost three boxes of this Resin but you could also purchase one Gallon Size which I realized later on. It would have made my life so easy!
The Resin takes almost 72 hours to fully cure so that meant I had to wait for it to dry completely before I could attach the Hairpin Legs and stain the wood sides.
I received these gorgeous Legs from DIY Hairpin Legs and I chose the color Teal as it complimented the color scheme really well.
They specialize in so many colors and I was tempted to get one of each but I decided on the color Teal, size 18 inches with a 3/4 inch thickness.
I flipped the table over and attached all four legs with a Hand Drill.
Flip it back up and the last step was to stain the sides of the coffee table.
I used this deep dark brown color.
Using a foam paintbrush apply the stain evenly on the sides and then using a cloth wipe off the excess stain.
And you should end up with something with this deep dark brown color.
And there you have it.
This is the final result.
I absolutely love how it turned out.
The Agate slices, the marbling, the glitter, the hairpin legs and the Resin all of it made it into such a stunning piece.
