Follow these instructions to craft a coffee table that reflects both your style and your do-it-yourself ingenuity.
Consider painting the decorative brackets before adhering them to the table since that might make it easier to coat the small openings and curves with paint. For the best-looking finish, use a wood conditioner before priming and painting unfinished furniture. If staining, top with clear polyurethane.

For a finish that's even more distressed, coat the table with a clear sealer before painting the red coat. Use a coarser-grit sandpaper and sand through the red coat to expose the table's wood tone.
