Steps To Making A Plaster Coffee Table
- Prepare the Surface: Begin by assembling the table frame, making sure to sand and seal the edges. Next, apply a layer of plastic spray to prevent the plaster from sticking to the frame.
- Mix The Plaster: Take your plaster mix and add enough water to make a light but spreadable paste. Use the stir sticks to blend it together. After that, paint the paste onto the tabletop and let it dry.
- Measure and Cut: Now take a ¼ x 4 plywood sheet and measure it to fit the top of the table, leaving a small border. Cut the plywood to size and place it on top of the plaster.
- Paint/Stain: Lastly, use a paint brush or stencils and paint or stain the base to achieve the desired look. Allow the table to dry overnight and your done!
