Full disclosure…I get A LOT of stuff because of my job.
Most of the stuff I LOVE, but sometimes, it’s just not my style.
Like this white coffee table from Ballard Designs. I like to refer to this table as the Golden Girl’s coffee table.
It reminds me of something you’d find in Palm Beach…not the suburbs of Philly.
I ended up with this coffee table because of a design room I created last year for the Philly Home & Garden.
The room had an Empire theme. (more full disclosure…I’ve never seem the show Empire)
Here is the room –

How’d I do?
So, a quick coat of spray paint got rid of the South Florida flare.
And, I used the table for a while in our family room. Until…I decided it was too large for that space.
I found a 36″ round pine table top (the same size as my table) on etsy for $29.99.
I wanted the table to have a little more “Restoration Hardware” feel.
I rubbed the stain onto the unfinished pine with a rag.
One coat did it.
And yes, I stirred the stain with a pencil.
I used Special Walnut from Minwax for the stain.
I wanted a light to medium color so it would contrast well with the black.
I screwed the pine top onto the table from the bottom, so the attachment is seamless and you can’t see the screws.
I love how the table turned out!
