Matte Black Coffee Table

  Classic matte black update for the win on this coffee table refresh.

classic refinished coffee table in plaster and cappuccino


When a great customer offered me purchase of her mission style coffee and end table set I jumped. I love this chunky craftsman look. It did however have some water damage on the top so needed some reloving.


Orbital power sander to the rescue, a few 80-120 grit pads later it was all sanded off and ready to get a new look.


let the sanding begin and done, now for a good scrub and let dry well


I chose my favorite Homestead House's new stain and finishing oil all in one in cappuccino. This easy to use no chemical smell finish goes on so easy and leaves a lovely finish. I sand lightly with 0000 steel wool between coats to make it even smoother. I went with 3 coats of the dark brown stain and then added the natural color for additional durability. Each coat was left over night to dry well.


for the base I chose Fusion Mineral Paint in a warm white called Plaster.
Two coats lightly sanded between with a sponge sander and left to dry overnight


I like to add some depth to this creamy color so I added Homestead House espresso furniture wax . It adds character too and easy to brush on and wipe off. I also likes it adds a bit more durability to the bottom shelf surface. Time to reattach bottom shelf and hardware and haul in to stage this beauty for sale. Did I mention I have the matching end table that can be done in the same techniques and colors?

  5. I am a novice at furniture painting but have a mission table like this and want to try this makeover. Can you tell me how to use the furniture wax, is it rubbed on between coats?

      wax is always the last step to seal your paint :)
