Upcycling is not only fun, but it also staves of lockdown boredom and is a really cheap way to refurbish your home by repurposing items that would otherwise have found their way to the dump.

So, it’s time to get creative as we look at how to upcycle your old coffee table, as well as some fun ideas that are sure to give you some valuable inspiration and get the cogs whirring!

How do you upcycle an old coffee table?

It’s easier than you think to upcycle an old wooden coffee table to beautifully match your home’s existing décor. All you need is some sandpaper, an Allen key, some masking tape, a drill, new table legs and screws, some paint, a paint stirrer, a paint roller and a paint tray.

With a simple splash of paint and new legs, you can transform a tired coffee table into a chic, contemporary masterpiece that all your loved ones will be asking where it came from! Best of all, you can tailor your coffee table easily to correspond with changing tastes and trends.
