Redoing Your Glass Coffee Table
Giving your glass coffee table a makeover is a great way to change your living space without breaking the bank. This tutorial will help you create a fresh, updated look with minimal effort.
What You’ll Need
- Glass-cleaning product
- Spray paint
- Painter’s tape
- Paintbrush or foam brush
- Soft cloths
Step 1: Clean the Surface of the Coffee Table
Using a glass-cleaning product and a soft cloth, gently clean the surface of your glass coffee table. Be sure to remove all dirt and grime before continuing.
Step 2: Sand the Edges of the Glass Table
Using sandpaper, gently sand the edges of the glass table. This will help the primer and paint adhere more easily and create a smoother finish.
Step 3: Apply Primer & Paint
Lay out painter’s tape to help you create crisp, straight lines around the edges of the table. Then, using a brush or foam brush, apply a thin layer of primer to the surface of your table. Allow the primer to dry completely before applying your paint. If you’d like a two-tone look, use the painter’s tape to section off the areas you want to paint a different color. Once the paint is completely dry, carefully remove the tape and enjoy your new and improved glass coffee table.
Step 4: Enjoy Your New Look
You’re done! Step back and admire your work and your newly refreshed glass coffee table. All it took was a few supplies, some elbow grease, and a bit of creativity. Now, you can relax and enjoy your updated living space.
