DIY: Adding Glam to a Vintage Coffee Table

Dec 9, 2013

I haven’t taken on an interior design project in quite a long time. Many years actually. When a friend called recently requesting my services for a late 1940’s Tudor-style home in South Carolina, I couldn’t say no. Tudors are my favorite type of home. Full of character and surprises! We’ve just completed a full bathroom and kitchen renovation and the home is coming along great. I hope to share the finished project with you in the next few months. I’m so excited!

Shopping around in Charleston last week I found the most amazing coffee table at Page’s Thieves Market. My client’s style is very Hollywood Glam so the elaborate white table base was perfect. It just needed a little bling. Using Rub n’ Buff (gold leaf), my new favorite product, it instantly went from a boring white to a dazzling metallic gold.

Rub n’ Buff if very easy to use. Just wipe on a little at a time using a dry cloth onto a porous material. Buff with the cloth until it has the sheen that you want. That’s it! Check out the Before/After below.
