Shabby beach coffee table

This one started out as a full size pine table top Michael dragged home.  He cut it down to coffee table size and cut legs from some table legs I brought home.

The ‘apron’ was made using scrap birch plywood.  All I had to do was sand and paint!

Here she is, all painted and pretty: 

And here she is after a good once over with the orbital sander to distress and add character and vintage charm:

This one will most likely be going to the fall show IN TWO WEEKS!

  1. You have the painting and distressing technique down to an art. This piece is FABULOUS, and if I didn’t live thousands of miles away I’d come see it in your Fall show. As with all your projects, you do excellent work! Hope you had a nice Halloween! 🙂

  2. P.S. I just wanted to let you know that I added you to my blogroll, because I love what you do! 🙂 http://eyeballsbydaycraftsbynight.wordpress.com/

  3. I totally love your style of stuff, it’s right up my alley. I don’t like it when you miss
    days on your blog because your stuff is so interesting to see. I never know what
    to expect next.
    Can’t wait to see the next blog
