New Year, New Table

I was a little bit naughty last year. 
 This is my husband's old coffee table when he was still a bachelor. I stripped it, sanded and painted it and gave it a new look. 

             I just couldn't stand seeing those scratches and cherry red finish is not really my cup of color.

I settled for a simpler and more neutral color for the body and a shiny wood finish for the table surface.

Ta da!

Did you give any furniture a new look for the new year?

  4. great job!! I have a lot of old furnitures to resurface too but do not have time for it yet... :( hubby is not a fan of painted wood so I really have to give a thought on how I want to re-purpose and re-surface their furniture that are pretty scratched up....

    1. May, have you started collecting inspirations yet? I am anxious to know.

    3. Actually I am so tempted to do painting with stain on wood, I saw that on pinterest and it looked beautiful! Now if only the rednecks would appreciate that....is a different story :)

      (sorry bout deleting, blogger should come up with editing posts like fb hehe)

  5. Wow you have totally transformed that little table. I looks wonderful! I have a little 3 legged stool that I've had on my to-do list for a couple of years to refinish... Perhaps this will be the year.
    Have a great day.
    Always, Queenie
