Old furniture pieces on their last leg can take on a new life when repurposed. With a little creativity and outside the box thinking, something old can become useful in a whole way.
Take the coffee table legs upstyled with paint, glaze and distressing. When the piece was found in a thrift store, the glass inserts were missing on top.
The legs were cut off, and give a new look in distressed Turquoise with Black Glaze. Hooks from Hobby Lobby were added, transforming the piece into a coat rack.
And coat racks may also be repurposed from old cabinet doors. With a great paint color, the accenting effect of glaze, and wood tones revealed by distressing, make for a whole new level of charm and one-of-a-kind character.
For her custom order, Kara selected these super chunky hexagon and coffee tables we had available for custom refinishing. Her choice of color was Sea Blue with heavy black glaze. These pieces were transformed and came to life with a whole new look!
Yesterday, I scored–yes that’s how I see it–these three obnoxiously large and dated coffee and end tables. I am so pumped to see what will come of these solid, scalloped-edged tables with the flowery carvings. I mean seriously, could you be starting with something more ugly? And to have the coffee table, hexagon and square end table all match? Way cool!!
They would look funky in turquoise, would rock in red, but I’m thinking antiqued white and shabby chic would do them great. I would love to hear what colors you would like to see them in…and any other ideas you might have! Please comment here or on our Facebook page. See below for a great look at all the detail…
