The Cocktail Table aka The Coffee Table

In my case, the wine table :)

Last year I bout this coffee table for $10. Yep, $10. I figured that I could do something great to it. I still think I can. I just haven't. (I have sanded it)

 I think it has potential:)

I have several ideas floating around in my head but just can't decide.

Idea 1: Gild it

A) I would then inlay a piece of antiqued mirror
B) Get a piece of travertine to put on the top

Idea 2: Paint it

What do y'all think? Any other ideas?


  1. Hi Fletcher,

    I like your idea of gilding the base of the table and adding an antique mirrored surface. That way you don't have to worry about glasses leaving rings or spilled red wine which might stain marble but you can just wipe off the glass.

    Have a great day!

  2. Phyllis took the words right out of my mouth!

  3. Ok, that's 3. Gild and mirror....except, that antique mirror is expensive. So regular mirror is fine too.
