How to Resin a Coffee Table

If you’re looking to give your coffee table a unique, modern look, try coating it with a layer of epoxy resin! Resin-coated coffee tables make great conversation pieces and allow you to customize your table with virtually any colors of your choice. Here are some tips on how to make your own resin coffee table:

Step 1: Gather Materials

  • Tabletop
  • Epoxy resin
  • Mixing cups and stir sticks
  • Resin colors, glitter, or other decorations
  • Deck and patio sealer
  • Painter’s tape

Step 2: Prepare the Tabletop

Before you begin, make sure you’ve prepared your tabletop. Sand it lightly to create an even, smooth surface. If you’re adding decorations, it’s a good idea to use painter’s tape to tape off the edges of your tabletop. This will give the resin an even surface to adhere to.

Step 3: Mix the Resin

Follow the instructions on your epoxy resin package. Pour the resin and hardener into a mixing bucket, making sure you keep the ratio in mind. Mix the resin thoroughly with a stir stick. If you’re adding colors or glitter, mix them in the resin mixture at this time.

Step 4: Pour the Resin

Slowly and evenly pour the resin onto the tabletop. You can create unique patterns by pouring small amounts of resin into each area. Work your way from the center of the table and work your way out.

Step 5: Let It Cure

Let the resin cure for at least 24 hours, or until it is completely dry. Once it has cured, remove the painter’s tape. Finally, apply a deck and patio sealer to protect the surface of the table.

And that’s all it takes to make your own stunning, custom-made resin coffee table! Gathering the materials, prepping the table, and mixing the resin may take time, but it’s worth it in the end. Enjoy your new, unique coffee table for years to come!
