Painting a Metal Coffee Table

Painting an old metal coffee table can be a great way to spruce up a living space. With a few materials and some careful preparation, you can give your metal coffee table a new look in no time.


  • Metal Coffee table
  • Sandpaper
  • Painter’s Tape
  • Priming Spray
  • Paint


  1. Make sure the metal coffee table is clean and dust-free. Sand the surface gently with fine-grit sandpaper to ensure a smooth surface.
  2. Apply painter’s tape along the edges and any details you want to keep unpainted. Make sure the tape is secure and that no paint can get underneath.
  3. Shake the primer spray can well and spray the entire surface of the table. Apply light coats and allow it to dry.
  4. Once the primer is dry, start painting. Get creative, use different colors, and apply the paint in light layers. If a paint detail is too hard to achieve, you can use painter’s tape to create patterns.
  5. Allow the paint to dry before you remove the tape and admire your work!

Painting your metal coffee table can be a great way to give it a new look and add a fresh touch to your living space. With these simple steps, you will be able to enjoy your newly painted coffee table in no time.
