Coffee table with parquet top

This item has been sold

Yeah Goodwill! Every once in a while I take a stroll through one of our local Goodwill stores. More often than not I end up leaving empty-handed though. I’ve found that their prices have increased significantly over the past couple of years. And I mean c’mon….who wants to pay $149 for a beat up dresser that has to be refinished? Definitely not me. I’d much rather pay $149 for a dresser that someone else already sweated over…..hint hint hint. ;O)

That’s why I was so excited to find this little beauty. Yes, it was a bit beat up. Lots of dings and scratches. But the bones were nice. I stripped the entire piece, restained the top and the lower shelf with a custom mixed walnut/gray combination, and painted the skirt and legs with Benjamin Moore’s Horizon.  I then slightly distressed the edges and sealed the top for durability.

DIMENSIONS: 48″ x 27″ x 17.5″
PAINT: Benjamin Moore Advance, in Horizon. Satin finish
SEALER: Minwax Polycrylic, in Satin
PRICE: $225

I Want It!
