Coffee Table Makeover with HomeRight

Over the weekend, I gave my coffee table a makeover.

You see, my table started out looking like this.  A $12.99 thrift store find that had definitely seen better days.

Much better after a little sanding, staining and a few coats of polyurethane.
  
But 4 years later I grew tired of the color.  It's a functional, sturdy piece of furniture so I didn't want to replace it.  I knew I could easily update it with paint.

Using my HomeRight Finish Max Pro Fine Finish Sprayer made this project quick and easy.

I bought a gallon of interior Oops Paint at Home Depot.

I was able to buy some great paint for a much cheaper price.

Thin the paint with water and mix well before spraying.

I painted my table outside.   It made it much easier for clean up.

Elevate the legs with a few bricks!
   
Painting with the HomeRight Finish Max Pro Fine Finish Sprayer was much faster than using a brush or roller, with perfectly smooth results.

Most important tip, clean your paint sprayer immediately after each use.  I used my garden hose for fast clean up.

I love the new color!  It's just my style and perfect for this space.

We also eat, drink and put our feet up on the coffee table.

To prevent water rings, I make coasters easily accessible.


I hope this makeover inspires you to give new life to an old piece of furniture as well.


I'm excited about my new paint sprayer!  It will make future paint projects so much simpler and faster.




*Thank you to HomeRight for providing me with the Finish Max Pro Fine Finish Sprayer.  All opinions expressed in this post are my own!

  11. So pretty! Please don't make me refinish any more furniture though. I am upholstered and painted out. I have 2 more coats of poly to put on my coffee table and then I am through until at least after Christmas.

  23. Love this table and the outcome is beautiful. So great to do with the sprayer. I've painted a million makeovers for customers in my time, but never with a sprayer. It would have made the process so much easier.
    Love the color and it looks great in your room.
    Thanks for sharing.

  28. Brandi,
    Your table looks fantastic. You did a great job on it. I really like the stain. I prefer the darker wood, and this is rich looking. A combination of hard work and a little love, and now look at it!

    Happy Thanksgiving, my friend.

  30. Incredible makeover! One of the most dramatic I've seen in a while! From drab (at the thrift store) to fab with your creativity and patience. When a piece of furniture is sturdy and in relatively good shape, there's no reason to ditch it. I love it that you took the initiative to just update it by changing the color and patina. The sprayer seems to have made the job a breeze!

    Good for you for using coasters!!! I thought I was the only one who still had that little rule going on in her house!! :-)

    Enjoy your new table! I can't wait to see what else you do with your sprayer. If you're just looking for something to do, I'll send you my address! :-)

  33. Incredible, this looks brand new:) I would like to paint one of my brown chairs white, but I'm feeling too intimidated by the sanding procedure, do I really have to sand before i paint?

  36. Brandi, great job. Oh how I love oops paint and leftovers on Craigslist. I have a question for you... how has your sprayer held up? Was this the first time using it or have you had it for a while?
