Redoing a Glass Coffee Table

Redoing a glass coffee table may seem like a daunting process, but with a few tools and some patience you can give your coffee table a beautiful new look that evokes style and elegance. Relax and take your time as you follow these easy steps to transform a plain and outdated coffee table into a sleek and sophisticated one.

Step 1: Gather Materials

Before beginning your project, make sure you have all of the necessary items. Here is a list of what you will need:

  • Sanding block
  • Painter’s tape
  • Primer
  • Paint
  • Rag
  • Glass cleaner
  • Sealer

Step 2: Preparing the Table

Once you have all the required materials, you can begin prepping your table. First, clean the table’s surface with a glass cleaner and rag to remove any debris, dust, and dirt. After that, use the sanding block to sand down any existing paint or varnish on the table.

Step 3: Applying the Paint

Once the table is prepped, use painter’s tape to tape off any parts of the table that you do not want to be painted. Once the table is completely taped off, apply a coat of primer as a base. Allow the primer to dry completely before applying your paint. Use multiple coats of paint, allowing each coat to dry completely before applying the next. Once the final coat is dry, use a piece of fine-grit sandpaper to lightly sand the painted surface.

Step 4: Finishing Your Table

To seal in your newly-painted table, apply a coat of sealer. Allow the sealer to dry completely before using. Finally, remove the painter’s tape to reveal a beautiful table that looks as if it cost a fortune but was made by your own two hands!


Redoing a glass coffee table is a time-consuming process but with a few simple steps you can create a stunning piece of furniture that adds a touch of class to any room. Don’t be afraid to get creative with your project and have fun while doing it!
