Custom Coffee Table
What a fun build this unique piece has been.
As you follow us here at T & T you know we are in constant remodel mode. This, my friends, is the reality of home construction. Chaos, dust, and tools everywhere!! I estimate we have refinished probably about 75% of our “older bi-level home”. So no surprise, we are currently working creating a more inviting living environment for our upstairs.
This piece is one that Mer has wanted me to build for a while. A custom Farmhouse style coffee table made with a variety of woods. Mer designed it to match our kitchen island X end legs we installed earlier this year
The bottom shelf is finished with straight pine planks. The top design is an opposing arrow design. I used Pine, Alder, and Hickory boards glued and air nailed from underneath. the edges were finished off with planed pine wood.
We wanted to keep the same color stain as our kitchen island but with a bit more character. . White was too much, gray was boring! Mer applied our favorite Dark Walnut Danish Oil and waited patiently for it to dry. She then app;ied a wash of Dixie Belle chalk paint in sawmill gravy, grey and then dark wax here and there. It’s a lovely muted mix of tones on top that will hide dust and imperfections. We don’t feel guilty putting our feet on it either!!
The finished coffee table compliments our cozy upstairs living space and our diy fireplace build (post coming soon!
