Use Frosted Glass to Transform a Table

090308table-03.jpgYou can't tell from looking at this table (and boy do we wish we had taken a before picture) but when we purchased a previous sofa at the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store they gave us this piece of furniture for free. With just a few simple steps we transformed it into our coffee table. Let's take a look at how we accomplished the task.

If we were to remove the glass top you would see that the table top underneath has water damage and isn't fixable. Our solution to cover up this eyesore was frosted glass. We first measured and then measured again. The first stop was our local glass shop to order custom fit frosted glass. We then made our way over to Home Depot and picked out a paint color--Behr's Velvet Morning. When the glass finally arrived we rolled the paint on the frosted side of the glass, letting it dry for 24 hours. Because the glass is frosted the paint covers much more evenly than if you were to use standard glass. We also picked up some felt pads so the glass top stays in place.
