Do you remember my awesome $15 coffee table that I loved? Well, it lasted about 2 weeks until Emmy chewed up the corners. We didn’t replace it because I was to darn bitter and I didn’t want to spend another dime replacing furniture the dog ate. And, well, it was still functional.
Last month I started trolling Craig’s List and I found…the world’s heaviest coffee table.
This was also my first foray into the land of polyurethane. And, um, holy surface area batman! Between the priming, painting, and poly I’m not sure I want to calculate how long I spent cuddled up with this table. It’s not perfect but I’m pretty happy with the results.
I sort of hate oak. Maybe it’s just that I was a child in the 90s when everyone thought this was a lovely color to do furniture in.
Such a lovely golden color.
I originally planned on staining the top a dark walnut color but…well my plans didn’t work out. I think I need a power sander.
The white is actually a lot more buttery than indoor photography is letting on.
The best part: a lift top!! No more spilling soup on my lap. So delightfully practical.
