Cait from Little City Farmhouse transformed a simple thrift store find into a beautiful coastal driftwood table! Read on to find out how.


When Cait picked up this 1930s cedar chest, its water damaged finish and wobbly legs were begging for some TLC.

To create the salty sea air vibe she had imagined, Cait first painted this piece with layers of Sunday Tea and Pebble Beach. She used a synthetic bristle paint brush and a spray bottle of water to help blend the colors. After letting it dry, she repeated this process with the colors, Cobblestone and Driftwood to help add some depth and give it an uneven finish.

After it dried, she applied one coat of Clear Coat.

Last but not least, Cait added some Limestone Glaze by wiping it on and spritzing with water to help spread it smoothly across the entire piece.

Just look at that gorgeous finish! Cait used Hemp Oil on the interior to bring out the amazing wood color inside.

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.
