"My Minimalist Coffee Table is finally complete. This one took much longer than my usual projects for many reasons. My original vision was derailed after I wasn't able to strip it completely of the horrid paint. I decided to try my hand at wood graining for the first time and I'm in love. No more excuses for not being able to achieve a wood look for me anymore. I also did some faux wood graining with paint on the side panels as well. I had painted it white first but it was too stark of a...
