Anthropologie Inspired Coffee Table

Using #WeatherwoodStains you can get this look!

This was a custom piece of furniture, loosely inspired by Anthropologie's Betelline Coffee Table! We love the all-wood take on this beautiful coffee table! Learn how to get the look!

The homeowner loved the movement in the marble top, but wanted something warmer than stone and metal. This solid wood table gets the same feel, with sexy base and natural top, but is more in the family's taste. 



1.] SAND: Begin with either new wood or strip previously finished tabletop. Start with a rough grit with a 120 grit.

2.] STAIN: Once the wood has been stripped or sanded back down to raw, you can stain it using Weatherwood Stain's Reclamation stain That will this pretty tan color you see below. This is pretty similar to Restoration Hardware's "Natural" color.

Tip: If you're looking for more of a gray color, like the next photo, use Weatherwood Stain's "Pining".

3.] LIGHTEN: Use Weatherwood Stain's White Maintenance Oil to add a beautiful white washed patina. You can see the a piece of wood in the video below, where I added the White Oil patina. This look is extremely popular right now and very beautiful. 

To use the Maintenance Oil, simply wipe or brush the Oil on, wait 5-7 minutes, and then wipe it back off. You can see below, it highlights the grain rather than diminishing it. It just adds that sun-kissed pop!

5.] PROTECT: Allow for the Maintenance Oil to cure. Then seal the table wit Weatherwash Varnish, we used Dead Flat.

6.] PAINT: Paint the base with your favorite chalky style paint, like Pearl Coatings 1 Step Furniture Paint.

If you'd like to see more furniture makeovers with this color scheme, here's a gorgeous Nautical Desk Makeover! [link]

Piece of pie, piece of cake! Building your own pieces can be easier than you think. But if carpentry's not up your alley, you could always refurnish an old piece like the above project. 
I hope to see you tomorrow at our party!
