Thrift Store Coffee Table Makeover

November 6, 2015 2 By EngineerMommy

I recently checked out the local thrift store looking for some candlesticks for a seasonal project. I never found the candlesticks I was looking for, but I did find something I fell in love with- this wooden hexagon-shaped coffee table! Obviously, it wasn’t in fabulous condition originally, but I saw potential. I saw a lot of potential.

Here is what the coffee table looks like now!

You won’t believe what it started out looking like. Here’s what it looked like when I brought it home from the
store!

The first thing I did was take all the hardware off (both the door handles and door hinges). Then I gave it a good sanding. I just used some sandpaper and some elbow grease!

Next, I painted the whole thing with a coat of white semi-gloss paint. I chose semi-gloss because I knew it would be durable and this coffee table will be getting a lot of use!

Finally, I wanted to add a bit of dimension so I grabbed some Weathered Gray Wood Stain and applied that only in the crevices and indentation areas. I used an old rag to apply the stain. I let that dry fully for a few days.

Then, I put the door back on and set it up in my living room! I love it!

It provides so much storage space inside and I love the hexagonal shape!
