Painted & Stained Square Coffee Table

Sometimes when we are out hunting for pieces I find something that looks pretty hideous, but am completely drawn to. These aren't pieces that we have been asked to find by clients or pieces that I went out in search of with a specific idea in mind.


These are just things I stumble upon and an idea hits me for them at first glance.  It's like I can completely picture the piece refinished and gorgeous. Which is an awesome thing, because typically I will ponder and contemplate and question the colors I choose.

This coffee table was one of those pieces that jumped out at me and I knew it immediately had to come back to the workshop.




It was SO hideous in its before state. Literally, it was pink. I know it looks white in this before picture, but I assure you...it was pink.



I obviously stripped the top down to bare wood and stained it one of my favorite colors, Early American by Minwax.





The base is painted in a true black. I love the combo of stained with black.

I typically do some distressing on every piece, but this one I left alone. The top has such character that I wanted it to take center stage.



Also, I felt like the legs had a more Moroccan influence and that tends to be more modern in the design world.




This piece is available for purchase in the Northern Connecticut area.
