I’m so excited to share with y’all this coffee table makeover! I found this beautiful wooden coffee table and felt like it was missing something, I just couldn’t decide if I wanted to paint it or not. After drinking a cup of coffee and working on some wooden sign orders it came to me: what this table needed was a darker stain! So I took the table outside (my favorite place to work), grabbed some Fusion Mineral Paint Stain and Finishing Oil and got to work. Keep reading to find out what you’ll need for this easy 7 step coffee table makeover DIY and check out the video of the full process below!
What You’ll Be Making
What You’ll Need
- Wood coffee table of your choice
- Fusion Mineral Paint Stain and Finishing Oil in Cappuccino
- 2 lint-free rags
Why We Use Fusion Mineral Paint Stain and Finishing Oil
- The Fusion Mineral Paint Stain and Finishing Oil is a stain & top coat combo that offers exceptional durability in high traffic areas like table tops, kitchen cabinets, and even flooring.
- It’s made of a combination of natural oils and resins that penetrate into the wood fibers to create a durable, scratch resistant and waterproof finish.
- This Stain and Finishing Oil doesn’t leave a surface film that sits on top. It soaks in and becomes part of your wood. So it’s ideal for wooden table tops as it has excellent resistance to abrasions and can be washed over and over again
- It’s eco-friendly and composed of plant products, Safflower oil, Tung oil, Linseed oil, Vegetable wax, safe odorless mineral solvent and cobalt free siccative.
- Strip the piece you will be staining down to the raw wood. I used the orbital sander 80 grit first, and then the 220 grit. Sanding is necessary for us to achieve a stained wood look with the Stain and Finishing Oil. Make sure to sand the surface evenly; areas sanded with different grits will also accept the stain differently, so it’s crucial to make sure you sand really well all over with the 220 grit for an even application!
- Open your Fusion Mineral Paint Stain and Finishing Oil and stir the product.
- Apply Fusion Mineral Paint Stain and Finishing Oil liberally and generously in the color of your choosing. Don’t worry too much if the coat looks uneven, we’ll fix this soon!
- After ensuring the entire surface is covered, grab one of your lint-free rags and start rubbing the stain off the surface with mild to moderate effort. You want to remove the majority of the Stain and Finishing Oil in this step.
- Give your stained surface a once over and make sure you didn’t miss any spots. If you did, no worries! Just apply the stain to the missed part and then wipe it with the rag.
- Take your second lint-free rag and wipe your surface with mild effort, making sure to remove the remaining Stain and Finishing Oil. If you don’t remove it all, it will not dry completely and it’ll be tacky so be sure to remove all excess oil!
- With Stain and Finishing Oil the sheen builds with each coat, but keep in mind so does the color! If you want more sheen, you can repeat steps 3-6. If you would like more sheen but not a darker color, you can use the Stain and Finishing Oil in Natural over the Cappucino Stain and Finishing Oil for added protection and sheen.
- Voila! Now you have a durable, beautifully stained coffee table!
