Spray Paint Brass Coffee Table Makeover

My living room brass coffee table was stuck in the 80's.
 It definitely needed to be updated.
 The brass table base was old.
It was spotted and pitted.
Spray paint to the rescue. Rust-Oleum metallic in 
Oil Rubbed Bronze. A favorite in blogland.
 I can see why. It's got a great finish. 
 For the cost of a couple of cans of spray paint, I have a new table. 
I still have half a can leftover for another project.
 In the bright sun you can see the metallic highlights.
 Back in the living room.
I like this so much better.
I MAY'd this simple change in just a few hours. 
Instant gratification.
I like it!


  1. That looks wonderful! Much improved. :)

  2. Looks the joy of quick and easy with almost instant gratification! Wish all my projects could be like that...:)

  3. Oh my gosh, that turned out so great, Rita! I love doing projects like this especially when there is nothing wrong with the piece, it just needs a little updating. It looks great in the ORB! I have a couple of cans in my garage that I keep on hand for projects. {That and Heirloom White are my "go to" spray paints}.

  4. Looks great Rita, a big difference!

  5. It looks like a different table. All because of a little can of paint.

  6. Oh Rita, what a great job, and yeah, instant beutiness! I love this, your table looks so modern in a few hours! Have a nice week. I'm also at MM, at BNOTP. Hugs

  7. WOW! What a difference a little elbow grease's beautiful! :D

  8. I am glad you got such a great result. I have been considering trying this. The table looks wonderful in your room.

  9. Great transformation, Rita. An instant beauty!...Christine

  10. Love it!! I wish I hadn't given away all my old 80's brass stuff whe I see such great transformations like this!

  11. Looks FANTASTIC!!! I love it. Your living room is gorgeous!!!

  12. Love the make-over. It is such a transformation! Well done.

  13. It looks fabulous and I love your blue and white vignette on the top. Great job and I love that paint also. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

  14. Rita, your coffee table looks great! Wonderful job!

  15. I am making the baked apple pancakes tonight. I can't wait to smell the cinnamon. I am using up the produce because we are leaving for Victoria, Canada. If I can't get Ric to Europe, Victoria is the next best thing. Take me along on your next Germany trip. Jeanie C.

  16. Interesting idea to change the color dark. It's nicely harmonious with the rug medallion. Jane

  17. Love the table! Have not seen that finish before. I will be trying it out on something soon!

  18. Wow, what a difference. It really looks great. Nice job. I need to get some spray paint. I've got some projects, just no paint!

  19. Great makeover! You gave your table a new life! I love Rustoleum spray paint too!

  20. Nice! Did you by any chance rub it down with sand paper first?

    1. No I didn't, but it was old and did not have shellac. A little scuffing up with fine sandpaper couldn't hurt, but I don't think it's necessary.
