Inspired By Home - Coffee Table with Rustic Top & pure white X-frame bottom.

I own a small furniture and home décor company called Inspired By Home and we love Ana White's site! When we saw this mirror top coffee table, we knew we had to have one for our home. Since we have a 3-piece sectional sofa that takes up the majority of the living room space, we knew we needed something that was a little bit smaller so I made some adjustments to these plans. The dimensions for our coffee table are 34"L x 28"W x 21"H. Most coffee table are about 18"H but our sofa sits a little higher and I also have very long legs so I needed something a little bit taller. We also decided not to do a mirror top because A) we didn't have an old mirror we could use, and B) because we are not big fans of having any glass tabletops. I instead went with a rutic look and added a bottom shelf to match.

Southern Pine
Finish Used
For the tabletop and shelf I started off by painting the boards entirely with a white cabinet enamel that I got from Lowes. After that dried a few hours I sanded it down (the more you sand the less you will see the white). Because it's an enamel, you really have to sand through all the way to the bare wood in order to get the stain to take and give you the dark stained areas. The stain I used was Minwax, Dark Walnut.
