A Coffee Table Makeover

A friend of mine was looking for a square coffee table for her living room…and oh, how I love a good hunt.  Off to the internet I went – and found her this beauty:

Okay… not quite beautiful, yet.  I brought it home, and gave it a good sanding:

Then I painted the legs Benjamin Moore’s Rockport Grey:

I chose to whitewash the top, accenting the wear and tear that it’d received over the years.  I absolutely love pieces with character.

Lastly, I distressed the legs and waxed the entire piece.

And… here’s how it looks today:

I can’t wait to see it in it’s new home!   Thanks for stopping in, have a great day!
