Last summer I scored a mid-century coffee table at Goodwill. I gave it a makeover that I loved. I didn’t need this piece in my home and I’ve tried to sell it, but haven’t been successful. Since it would not sell, I decided to give it a second makeover.
This is what this mid-century coffee table looked like before its first makeover:
It’s not fine furniture, it’s not even wood, with the exception of the legs. If it were solid wood, I would not have considered painting it. I wanted to give it a modern look, so for its first makeover, I painted it with emerald green paint toned down with black chalk lime wax. I loved the look!
I thought that a mid-century lover would discover this table in my shop or on Craigslist and snap it up. It never happened, so I decided to give it a new makeover, this time with a more subtle paint color, black.
I’m loving it’s new all-black look, especially with the gold trimmed legs.
This would be a practical piece in a family or living room. It is low to the ground making the top level the perfect height for drinks, remotes, and magazines. The lower level offers space for storing books and magazines waiting to be read.
If you like this makeover, I would love it if you would pin it to one of your boards on Pinterest for others to discover. If you like furniture makeovers, be sure to check out my furniture board.
