Refinishing a Round Two-Tone Coffee Table
Refinishing a round two-tone coffee table is a rather easy task that can make a huge difference in your home decor. A freshly refinished two-tone coffee table can be the centerpiece of any living room or sitting room. With a few simple tools, you can transform an old and worn out coffee table into a beautiful piece of furniture. Here’s how to get started:
Tools and Supplies Needed
- Sandpaper (coarse, medium and fine grit)
- Paint brush and/or foam brush
- Wood stain
- Paint (or two tones of furniture wax)
- Wax applicator
- Soft cloths
Step One: Sanding
First, you’ll need to sand the surface of your table. Start with a coarse grit of sandpaper and work your way to a fine grit. This will help to remove dirt and grime and get the surface of the table ready for the refinishing process. Make sure to have a well-ventilated area to work in.
Step Two: Staining
After sanding, choose a wood stain that will best complement the color of your table. Apply it with a paint brush or foam brush. Make sure to cover the entire surface of the table. Allow it to dry completely before proceeding.
Step Three: Painting
Now it’s time to add color to your table. You can either use paint or two tones of furniture wax. If you’re using paint, apply two coats with a brush. Let the paint cure between coats. If you’re using wax, use an applicator to apply it to the entire surface of the table. Allow it to dry completely before applying the second coat.
Step Four: Finishing Touches
Once everything is dry, lightly buff the table with a soft cloth. This will help to remove any imperfections and give your table a polished finish.
And that’s it! Your newly refinished round two-tone coffee table is ready to be the centerpiece of your living room. Enjoy!
