The Petersen Coffee Table - Custom Refinish Before & After


This table is a refinish we recently completed for a client we have worked with before. She wanted a makeover on this coffee table that had some wear and tear. If you have kids you know exactly how the top of this table got to be just like it is. This table has seen homework, some plastic hammering, some cars driving across the surface and so on and so on!
Mike was able to completely sand the top to remove all of the dings.It almost looks like the top of the table has been completely replaced. A nice smoothe finish was his goal and is exactly what he achieved. You cannot go wrong with a chunky coffee table nestled between couches. In fact, we had a black coffee table in here but we sold it and now we are on the hunt for one of our own. I am not quite sure yet exactly what we need as of yet but I am on the look out! I hope that all of you wonderful moms and moms-to-be out there have had a wonderful day. I know that I have been well taken care of here and am grateful for my husband and my little girl who make me so happy. And for my four step kids who are always kind and respectful and who are a big part of my life.


I feel that the blog has been a bit neglected over the past few weeks and it has been weighing on my mind but we are in for a few changes around here. Some pretty big changes that are exciting and scary all at the same time. I cannot wait to share the details soon!

Happy Mother's Day!

Cassie is right - I couldn't even see the details before.

This is a great makeover - I'm sharing this with a friend that has an old coffee table that would look great with this same treatment.

Love the coffee table-The top DOES look like brand new! I can't believe that you are being such a brat(;>) and leaving us hanging with your BIG NEWS! Are you pregnant? Are you moving? Are you starting a new business? Are you flying to England to dine with the Kate & William? Did I come close?;>) xxoo Diana

Gorgeous!!! Love that it's distressed - much easier to maintain with children. My similar coffee table needs to be properly distressed since my 2 year old has decided to take on that challenge herself :D

Found you on DIY Showoff!

Wow, I would go as far as to say that this table looks better than when it was new off the show room floor!
