How to Make Farm or Rustic Coffee Tables
If you have been using the same coffee table for over a year, you will at one point grow bored but buying a new one will certainly cost too much and what will you with the old one anyway? So, instead of buying a new one, you can certainly reuse the old one by giving it a makeover. But then, you will have another problem, what makeover will you give? If you want to get a more natural, cozy and warmer feeling to your living room, then you need to give it the rustic coffee tables makeover.
So, how can we make a new face out of an old coffee table, or rather, how can we make the coffee table look older and more used like the rustic coffee tables supposed to look like. The first thing to do is to measure the existing coffee table. After that, decide if you want to have a thicker or thinner board. Then get yourself the boards that you want from the nearest shop and also get yourself the stain in the color that you want.
Then, sand the boards down with the medium sandpaper. This will take some time. But once the surface of the old coffee table has been cleared, you need to stain it with the new stain. It is okay if this is your first time staining as it is not a difficult job, especially for the rustic coffee tables project. You would not need any perfect look for the style, thus this is one of the simplest staining. Even though simple, the project can turn wood in such an amazing way.
Let the boards dry for one whole night. This is a necessary thing to do before we continue to the next step. Position the new boards on the table and then make the measurement that we want. You can increase the size by let some hung off the table evenly. Be very careful in this phase as you will need to ensure that all the boards will be at the same size for your rustic coffee tables. You can simply glue the new surface to the old ones and leave it to dry.
Once it is dry, you need to sand the top again. But this time, you need to sand it only to the right amount, not too much and not too little. This way, you will be able to get a new surface with the used look of the rustic coffee tables. And just like that, your project is finished.
Description: The rustic coffee tables are warm, natural and cozy. You can remake your old table to this new style by following these simple steps and you will be able to get a new look.
