Custom Coffee Table in Vermont Slate and Dover White

March 15, 2013

Believe it or not, this is my second 70s era coffee table that I’ve refinished.  You can see the first cream colored coffee table here.  The cream colored table was a bit different with more scrolls but they are basically the same.  Here is a before picture of this table.  In the words of Gordon Ramsay, “wow.”before

First things first, I had to take off these fuzzy wuzzies, the likes of which have indeed been seen by some of my furniture refinishing friends on Instagram (@TayLovesNate).photo copyThe customer wanted a design I haven’t done before but was excited to try out, Vermont Slate all over with an accent in Dover White.vermont-slate-cece-caldwell-dover-white-chalk-paint-coffee-table-upcycleUmm, yes.  I will likely be doing this again.  The white brings out the gorgeous scroll work.cece-caldwell-vermont-slate-dover-white-paintThis old yet sturdy old piece of furniture will have a fun new life.
