46th Penny Pinching Party

Tuesday, August 10, 2010

Don't forget to join my Refinished Furniture party this month if you have any furniture projects you want to show off!
Most of the furniture I have been fixing up lately has been from my 99 year old grandmother's house (we recently moved her into a rest home). This weeks project is a coffee table. It had some really wobbly legs that I glued. After that I painted it cream, used some leftover stain and rubbed it all over, sanded edges and spots for that antique look, then varnished. Total cost was only $3 for the glue, the rest of the stuff I had on hand. The cream paint turned out a little more yellow than I wanted probably because of the "clear" varnish I used, but other than that I am pretty happy.
