Here is my latest craigslist score, a Broyhill coffee table for $40.00. The seller had the end tables when I first looked at it, but they were gone by the time I was ready to make the purchase.
While I don't love the finish, this table has great bones I love the rounded legs, square top and it's the perfect size to accessorize and leave a space for the kids to play.
I usually sit on my projects a while, but this one I wanted to get started on right away. I sanded it down to bare wood on the top only. The legs I left because I was planning on painting them. I choose a dark stain for the top, Ace Hardware brand Jacobean.
I used 2 coats of stain and 3 coats of poly on the top. Next on to the legs, I painted those cottage white with Behr paint plus primer 2 coats.
Here is the finished project, I might distress the legs a little, but for now I am just enjoying a project I have completed.
