We all know how used and abused coffee tables can be, especially when there are kids around. Cait from Little City Farmhouse used Pebble Beach to restore the former beauty of this table so it’s ready for many more years of love!

If there’s a single piece of furniture that gets used in your home as much as your dining table, it’s definitely your coffee table. They can go from perfect to looking used in what feels like a hot second if you have children! This coffee table belongs to a good friend of mine. She has three lovely kids and this coffee table is their homework perch, their game night table, their snack table while they watch television. It was full of character but needed a little refresh from it’s dull honey knotty pine state.

Everyone loves grey! So after stripping and sanding the top I gave it a coat of grey stain followed by a coat of white stain to tone it down. Then I painted it! Let me tell you what I did:

  1. Prep is key! It is important to get any oil or residue off the piece first and then give it a scuff sand to ensure great adhesion.
  2. Paint! This is the fun part! I painted this table in Pebble Beach in the All-in-One formula. This formula has superior adhesion, it self-primes, and has a built in topcoat – all keys to a successful finish!
  3. Distress to your liking!
  4. Topcoat. Even though the All-in-One formula has a built in topcoat, I like to give an extra couple coats of protection to highly used pieces. I gave the entire table a couple coats of poly in a satin finish.

Cait {Little City Farmhouse}

Hello! I’m Cait! I am a wife and a mom of two little ones, and a proud auntie of a growing little flock! I first started by refinishing several pieces in my own home, and fell in love with it. Slowly it turned into a business and something I could do from home. I love the thrill of finding old furniture, and I adore the process of refinishing it into something new and fresh. Refinishing furniture is the heart of my business. I believe your home should reflect who you are, and I love helping people get the look they want in their homes by refinishing their furniture for them.
