Rustic Farmhouse Coffee Table

Things have been going better this week, our wonderful feline has made a recovery from his "event' last week. The vet thought it was a heart attack, although it still seemed more like a stroke based on symptoms. In either case, he's okay so far. We will be leaving Naples FL after Labor Day and it's been incredible. I've traveled all over the US and this has to be one of my favorite spots. We got to go to Sarasota Beach a week ago, only for a hour, but still, it's awesome. I haven't seen a beach packed like that since Waikiki.
As we release new products, it gives added ability to recreate even newer, beautiful store bought looks. I love giving the client the ability to create colors this gorgeous in their own homes. Today, it's all about turning this old pine coffee table transforming into the perfect accent for your farmhouse style home.


  • Hand Sander
  • Sandpaper- 80 grit, 120 grit
  • Sponge Brush


1.] SAND: Here's the labor portion. You want to use a palm sander and 80 grit sandpaper to make sure the wood is completely down to raw. 

2.] STAIN: Weatherwood released a new stain that can turn oak into a beautiful light brown, called Restoration. This product can work on any wood, so it's less complicated than some of their other products. You should apply this product with a sponge brush, let it dry naturally. Do not wipe it back off. As the wood stain dries, the wood becomes oxidized and it turns a beautiful warm gray brown. You can see this for yourself, in the above video.

3.] LIGHTEN: If you want to lighten the look, you can add a coat of White Maintenance Oil. It adds the look of patina and is just generally gorgeous. Simply brush or wipe onto wood, allow to sit 5-10 minutes. Then wipe off with a clean cloth. Or you can watch the video below. 

4.] PROTECT: To protect the wood, you can use Weatherwood Varnish. That can be applied right over the stain and maintenance oils, as long as they're completely cured first. You can apply 1-3 coats of varnish based on the level of protection you need.

5.] PAINT: The Base was chalk painted with Pearl's Coatings Furniture Paint: Color "Brite". It's a 1-step furniture paint that can be applied over other coatings.
