Epoxy a coffee table

Creating your own epoxy coffee table is a great way to give your living room a unique touch and style. This guide will cover the basic steps for creating a stunning epoxy finish for a coffee table.


  • Coffee table
  • Damp cloth
  • Epoxy resin or epoxy resin system
  • Small wooden stirrers
  • Resin pigment (optional)
  • Wood-safe foam paint roller

Step 1: Prepare your Coffee Table

Begin by wiping down your coffee table with a damp cloth. This will remove any dirt or dust which may interfere with the epoxy resin application.

Step 2:Mixing the Resin

Once the table has been cleaned, it’s time to prepare the resin. Mix the epoxy resin according to the manufacturer’s instructions, using a wooden stirrer.

If you want to add some colour to the resin, you can add epoxy pigment. This will give the resin a different colour, which can be very effective.

Step 3:Apply the Resin

Take the wood-safe foam paint roller and use it to carefully apply the resin to your table, in smooth coats. Work slowly and try to spread the resin evenly.

Once the table is completely covered, let it sit for up to 24 hours and let the resin cure.

Step 4:Finish

Once the resin has cured, use a damp cloth to wipe away any dust or dirt. You may need to use some fine-grit sandpaper to sand away any areas which have not cured properly.

Once the table is clean and free of debris, you’ll have your beautifully customised epoxy coffee table.


Creating your own epoxy coffee table is a great way to give your living room a unique and stylish touch. With this guide, you’ll have the information and steps you need to create your own epoxy finish for your coffee table.
