Coffee Table Revamp with Hair Pin Legs ….. ooooh sexy !

I shared this little table make over on my Instagram stories and was blown away with all the attention it got, so I thought I would go ahead and share here…. sure why not !

It was part of a 3 piece set, you know the ones that all fit into each other.  I got the set years ago, never really liked the legs, but it was fine and practical.

I decided the legs had to go and be replaced with some hair pin ones.  Also there was some shiny coating to the top of the table that I never liked either so I decided to sand it back and see what it came up like. By doing this, I also wanted to keep rid of all the marks and stains it had accumulated over the years.

Here’s a few before pictures and some work in progress shots …..

I was lucky enough, a family member made the legs for me – yay ! so all I has to do was prep them for paint.  I used a black matt spray on paint, just gave them a couple of coats.

The sanding on the top went really well, I got out all those marks.  I then just used some Woodoc stain in natural matt.  This just brought up the grain really nice and gave it a natural colour, without changing it too much.Coffee Table Make Over with Hair Pin Legs

The legs were easy enough to pull out and with a little bit of help from himself we got these out pretty quick.  Yes, I l know I should have filled in those holes, but who’s going to be looking under the table … right ?!  We then drilled in the new hair pin ones.Coffee Table Make Over with Hair Pin LegsCoffee Table Make Over with Hair Pin Legs

Just a little bit more modern.  I’m thinking of doing the second table now, just to break it to himself !
