Here is my coffee table makeover!  I bought this coffee table off of craigslist for $20.  It was in TERRIBLE condition.  The legs were falling off…the finish on top was almost gone…there was gunk all over.

(I had just started to fix it when I realized I needed a before pic, that’s why it’s standing on it’s side.)

But with nail gun, electric sander, and a can of black paint it looks BEAUTIFUL.  I could not be happier with the results!

    Nice job! I need to buy some old furniture and do this. I keep meaning too but I never find the time and my kids go CRAZY in thrift stores. It’s so depressing too because I LOVE them! haha

    That came out beautifully. GREAT JOB. It looks like something from the Pottery Barn.
    I signed up to follow you and hope you will do the same.

    A little can of paint and elbow grease can really make a difference! It looks great!
