Pin824 Share38 Yum +11 StumbleShares 863Hello again! Sarah, from Little Red Brick House, back again sharing another furniture makeover. This time I wanted to show you how I took a dining room table and turned it into a pedestal coffee table! I wanted a round coffee table for the living room but I wasn’t having any luck finding one that I liked on Craigslist or our local classifieds. After seeing a pedestal dining table listed, I knew it would be perfect for what I was looking for. I just had to make it shorter. First, I took the table apart with a socket wrench. I kept all of the hardware in a cup so that I wouldn’t lose it. Then I had my husband cut both ends of the pedestal base off. We used those parts to create a new, shorter base. Plus, that is where the hardware that secures it to the table top is located. Don’t want to get rid of that! Then we drilled pocket holes with a Kreg Jig, so we could join the two end pieces from the previous table base. After joining those two pieces, we secured the legs back on. The final step was to reattach the table top. We left it like that for a while but then I decided that I wanted to paint the base and leave the top stained. So, I painted the base with Vanilla Frosting from Country Chic Paint. It’s chalk paint so I didn’t even have to sand! I love how it turned out! I love how you can really see the detail on the apron now. The white base also helps make the table stand out from the floor. That wraps up another DIY project! I’ll see you guys again a few weeks! For now, you can follow along with me on my blog or any of my social media sites below.

Now, we don’t put a finish on all of our pieces, just the ones that will need protecting.  I think I put like 5 coats of Varathane Polyurethane in Matte finish on the table top.  I really wanted to be able to wipe it down after our little monsters eat
