Good morning! Today I'm excited to be participating in Themed Furniture Makeover Day with the DIY Furniture Girls! It's a wonderful group of very talented furniture builders and painters, and I'm thrilled to join them this month :)



The theme for February is Inspired by Chocolate. For my piece, I decided to tackle an occasional table I picked up for free at a garage sale last summer (the same garage sale where I found another of my favorite tables - it was a real gold mine!)


The table originally had a marble top that was incredibly heavy and outdated, not to mention it kept falling off, but I had other plans in mind to make it functional again.

It was also missing one of its medallion accents. The poor thing had definitely seen better days.


Luckily, I was able to create a replacement with a bit of ingenuity (I'll be sharing how I did it next week, so stay tuned!)


I was fortunate that this table already had some lovely dark chocolate accents that I wanted to preserve. I sealed the center beam with shellac, and after removing the old chipping veneer, I stained the wooden accents on the legs with Java gel stain.


After taping off the wood sections, I painted the rest of the table in DecoArt Chalky Finish Paint in Yesteryear, followed with some highlights in a pure white color called Everlasting.



Now for the top. I had always envisioned replacing the marble with wood planks, and with the help of a new jigsaw, I was able to cut them accurately on the first go! Can you tell I'm proud of myself? :)


I gave the planks a coat of gel stain to match the rest of the wood, and sealed with polyurethane. The rest of the table was finished off with clear and dark wax.

I love the way it all came together!
