Coffee Table Makeover

School hasn't even started and I am already slacking on my daily blogging projects!  I am so sorry!!!  What a week this has been...  My sister was visiting from D.C. and we had high hopes for all of the wonderful projects that we would complete.  Her car was full, and our paint guns were ready.  Boy were we dreaming!  It turns out that Mr. Dump and I decided to officially pull the trigger and rent our house.  We have had our house on the market for quite a while and haven't had a whole lot of interest.  Instead of painting furniture, we prepared for a gigantic moving sale and packed most of our house.  Needless to say, our garage is still full and we were only able to complete one measly project...
This beautiful coffee table had major problems on top, but loads of character.

We decided to mask all of the imperfections by sanding the top to its original form.

Then we painted the legs and stained the top.  After distressing the edges and adding a layer of rub-on polycrylic, it is now a beautiful coffee table that we may consider taking to our next house. 

We added the original claw feet, but may end up painting them black to add a more modern feel. What do you think???

We also added more pieces to our booth at Sleepy Poet.  Thanks to my sister's boyfriend, Kortney, we have a new and improved website that will be up and running in the near future!!  Here are some pictures to give you a little taste of what is coming!

Thanks for being patient during this hectic time!  I cannot wait to get settled and start painting!!!  More projects will be arriving this week!

Happy Junkin'!

  1. It was so much fun to hang out with you and Mr. Distressed last week! Even if I did spend WAY too much time pricing items for the sale and WAY too little time sanding and painting! Once you're in your new house, we'll do nothing but sand and paint, right? And take down wallpaper? You know those are my favorite things! Kortney and I had fun helping you at the moving sale and with the boxing up/moving/a little cursing/mostly just eating tons and tons of food while pretending to help you move!
