Ever since we purchased our couch, we’ve wanted to find a new coffee table.
Well…we bought the couch 2 years ago. So, I think it’s finally time to get on the coffee table hunt!
It’s not that I don’t like our current coffee table. It was a fine Ikea purchase from my college days, and it has stood the test of time…(a.k.a. many college house parties)
I still love the table’s white color, the sliding drawer, and the two levels that provide maximum storage.
But, it just did not work with our L-shaped, natural colored couch.
To seal and protect the stained wood, I used a wipe-on poly. I literally just poured it right out onto the table and wiped an even coat on with a soft cloth. After it dried (about 3-4 hours) I used steel wool to lightly buff out the wood. I repeated this process 2 more times, for a total of 3 coats of wipe-on poly.
