Updating a Glass Coffee Table

Whether you have had it for years or have recently been gifted one, updating a glass coffee table can be a great way to personalize it and give it a modern feel. Here are some tips and tricks to help you get started!


Before you start, it’s important to make sure you have all of the necessary materials. You’ll need:

  • Sandpaper
  • Primer
  • Paint
  • Glass cleaner
  • Sponge
  • Rags

Prepping the Table

Once you have all of the materials, you can begin prepping the table. Begin by cleaning the glass with your glass cleaner and a soft rag. This will help ensure that your paint adheres better.

Painting the Table

Once the table is clean, it’s time to start painting. Start by sanding the table lightly to help the primer and paint stick better. Once that is done, apply the primer to the table, making sure to cover all surfaces evenly. Let it dry for a few hours before applying the paint. When the paint is applied, make sure you do multiple coats for best coverage.

Finishing Touches

Once the painting is finished, you can add some final touches if desired. You can add a stencil to the glass or even use a spray of adhesive to add decorative elements such as rhinestones, glitter, or confetti. This is a great way to add some personal flair to your coffee table!

Now that you know how to update a glass coffee table, it’s time to get started and make it your own!
