World Market pine coffee table

This item has been soldDSCF0366

Once I started sanding this table down all my plans went right out the window. I was originally thinking that I’d paint the base white, and give the top a dark, rich brown stain. But once I started sanding I started thinking about how great this would look with a really weathered base…..sort of like how old pallets look when they’ve been left out in the elements for years.

And I was so right! After all the staining I added a double layer of Danish oil to the top, which, once cured, will be a really durable finish. The customer that purchased this piece said they were moving into a loft style space…..this will be a PERFECT fit!

Before the Renovation Pics:

Ohhh…..apparently the former parents of this piece must’ve had a puppy. Or maybe a teething baby (kidding.  maybe. not really). The corner will need a little bit of work but after I’m done with it you’ll never even know that someone/something had this for lunch. It’s got 2 roomy drawers, with black wrought iron hardware, which at this point, I think will stay. Hey, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

    Hello Kristen – what a coincidence – I’m in the midst of refinishing the exact same table. My wife and I really love the two World Market pieces we bought years ago (Coffee & End Table). We really regret having not gotten two end tables at that time, because by the time we looked for another one that style of table had been discontinued. So back to our table(s); having used the weathered pallet approach to effectively break the piece up, your table looks really good . Honestly, it was my plan in the beginning to mirror your route by introducing paint. But, by the time I had our table stripped and prepared for paint/stain, I came to realized that the beauty of the pine and knotting needed to be brought out or amplified. As relatively good pine generally does, the tables look was no doubt a total transformation. Fan of your blog by the way 🙂
