How to Finish a Wooden Coffee Table

If you’re looking to spruce up your living room, finishing a wooden coffee table is a great addition. Finishing a wooden coffee table is not as difficult as you may think and can really bring a certain look to any space.


Before beginning the process, you’ll need the following materials

  • Sandpaper
  • Lint-free Cloth
  • Wood Stain
  • Polyurethane
  • Paintbrush

The Process

  1. Begin by sanding the entire surface of the coffee table with sandpaper. This will help the wood stain and polyurethane adhere better to the wood.
  2. Once the entire surface is sanded, wipe away any dust you may have created with a lint-free cloth.
  3. Using a brush, apply the wood stain over the entire surface of the coffee table.
  4. After the wood stain has dried, apply the polyurethane. Let the polyurethane dry completely before proceeding.
  5. Once the polyurethane is dry, apply a second coat of wood stain. Wipe away any excess with a lint-free cloth and let the wood dry.
  6. Your coffee table is now finished! Enjoy your new addition to your living room.

Finishing a wooden coffee table is a simple and easy process that will help any room look more polished and put together. With the right materials, you can transform your coffee table into a sleek and stylish piece of furniture for your home.
