Hey everyone, it’s Marieza from Home with Marieza. Give your living room an updated feel just by painting your coffee table! Lets get started!

Materials List:


How To:

Step 1:

First, I used a flat-head screwdriver to remove the brass plates before sanding the wood. Note: Oak is extremely hard, and other than the end table, I did not sand through the veneer layer while taking off the thick varnish coating. The sides and legs only got a light scuffing for the paint to grip well.

Step 2:

Secondly, I chose the color “Nautical” for the coffee table and two end tables in Dixie Belle’s Silk paint range.

Step 3:

Thirdly, the Silk Mineral Paint has a built-in primer and topcoat. I decided to add a bit of Best Dang Wax anyway.

Step 4:

Next, adding caster wheels. Drill a hole in the center of each leg. Once all four holes are wide enough, inert the t-nuts. The flat heads have teeth that need to be hammered into the wood and the stems can be pushed into the t-nuts by hand.

Step 5:

Lastly, I added some shine to all the caster wheels with Gold Gilding Wax.
