How to Refurbish a Glass Coffee Table

Giving an old glass coffee table a makeover can be a great way to add color and style to your living room. Follow these steps to bring new life to your glass coffee table.

What You’ll Need:

  • Lint free rags
  • Dishwashing liquid
  • Car wax
  • Masking tape
  • Newspaper
  • Paint
  • Paint of your choice
  • Masking paper
  • Paintbrush
  • Clear lacquer


  • First, remove any existing dust, grime, and dirt buildup from the surface of your glass coffee table by wiping it down with lint-free rags and a mild dishwashing liquid.
  • Next, apply a car wax to the coffee table to give it an extra layer of protection and to make it a bit easier to clean in the future.
  • Now, use masking tape to protect the edges of the glass and then lay out newspaper underneath the table to protect the floor.
  • Apply a thin layer of paint of your choice to the top of the table and the sides. Use a paintbrush to apply the paint to avoid leaving brush strokes.
  • Once the paint has had a chance to dry, apply a thin layer of clear lacquer to the entire table to give it a glossy finish.

Final Step:

Your newly refurbished glass coffee table is ready for use. Enjoy your beautiful and unique piece in your living room for years to come.
