Another E&R Rescue

Coffee Table refurbishedWe were contacted by a friend and neighbor who had a beautiful old coffee table that was destroyed by her loving dog. We all love our pets – but this doggy pushed it to the limit! (see Before picture below) Though truly trashed, we felt the solid Pottery Barn piece had many more years of service to give and were so excited about the opportunity to bring it back to life. Her plan was to place the table in a family room adjoining the kitchen newly remodeled in tones of black and grey.

After carefully sanding down the top to its original finish, we primed and painted it this gorgeous poinsettia red and added brushed nickel drawer pulls to blend with the kitchen appliances. We love the way it turned out – hope you do too!

Score one for recycling and saving our planet one piece at a time!
