Transform a brown and boring thrifted table into a stunning bright and colorful table with some Ombre Accents.
Here it is guys. My Coffee Table is finally complete and looks so so much better than when we actually got it.
Since giving this table a makeover and using it, I have finally now made a DIY Wooden Coffee Table with my own hands and sold this one.
But please continue reading how it looked before and what I did to make it so bright and cheery.
Before we actually jump into the makeover I just wanted to give you guys a little refreshed that this table came with two side tables as well.
I already painted and you can see the full transformation in my Refinished Side Tables post
I obviously wanted to keep the coffee table in line with the same theme as the side table. So that everything looked cohesive and put together.
So here I am today with its makeover!
Materials Needed for Refinished Coffee Table
DecoArt Metallic Paint (Gold)
DecoArt Outdoor Living (Purple)
Step By Step Tutorial for Refinished Coffee Table
This is the only picture I managed to snap before transforming it. But you can get an idea of how basic and boring the table actually was before.
What actually made me want to purchase this coffee table was the fact that it had these concrete square slabs in the middle of the table underneath the glass.
The only thing was that since everything was brown and the concrete was gray that nothing stood out.
You will see in the steps below how I brightened it up
I could have painted it orange like the side tables but knowing me I can’t do the same thing all over again.
And I already painted it twice on the two side tables so I just couldn’t do it a third time. I just didn’t have the desire to repeat the same color scheme.
Hence we had to switch things up.
I chose this beautiful color from DecoArt from there Outdoor Living Line.
I love it because it glides onto metallic surfaces like a breeze and the results are lasting.
I also have used this paint on my dining room chairs and the result is beautiful and the paint has stayed put with no chipping at all.
So it’s perfect!
I painted the table with two coats of the paint and let it dry.
Everything on this coffee table was going to look exactly the same as the Side Tables but the only thing different was the colors.
I taped off the legs of the coffee table and painted it Gold so it had a dipped gold leg look to it.
Then came the part to paint the concrete slabs in the middle that I was talking about earlier.
You need to see the full Refinished Side Table Post to see how I did the ombre look.
This time I chose this beautiful turquoise color for the stenciling portion.
The Purple and the beautiful Teal color worked great together.
Here is the stunning ombre results.
And that was it.
This was going to be a short and sweet post since its basically a repeat of the Side Tables but I really wanted to share how the coffee table turned out.
What do you guys think?
I’m loving the purple with the teal!
