I'm really into burlap lately. I also knew that I wanted a different coffee table. I put the two ideas together and created my new burlap coffee table. I love it!
You may remember the table from when I painted it a nice turquoise and used it on my patio. Yep. Same table. Until we have the patio area extended it was taking up too much space. Not to mention that next spring I will want to paint something else for outside. Maybe something that's taller so that we can enjoy a family dinner outside.
Since the table top was turquoise I painted it a more neutral tone so that it wouldn't show through the burlap. I chose a light yellow.
Then I took my sample paint "Bay Leaf" by Martha and painted the bottom portion of the table.
After that, I had fun with my Antiquing Glaze.
I covered the top of the table with Burlap. I bought 2 yards at $3/yd. I cut it to have about a 1 inch over lap on each side. Then I tucked it under and went to town with my staple gun. While this picture shows just one staple, trust me, there are plenty more! I made sure to pull it tight without causing it to have too many sways and curves in the burlap threads.
Then came the last fun part. Finishing it off with decorative nail heads along the edge.
And one last view....
