I’m so excited to show you this queen anne coffee table with a new hardwood flooring top! This is the third project I’ve made from that one $7 coffee table.
Here’s a reminder of the original thrift store coffee table with the busted top. I cut the table top in half to make the half table and I used part of one of those halves to make the small four legged side table.
After using the table top, I was left with this base just hanging out in the woodshed waiting for it’s turn at a makeover.
Paint Queen Anne Coffee Table Base
After a good primer coat, the piece can speak to me better.
This picture isn’t the best, but I wanted you to see the pallet boards in the background. I cut and sanded them to use for this table, but they were different thicknesses. That’s why I went with the hardwood flooring. This was during the design stage to see how I wanted to secure the hardwood flooring. I tried to insert the tongue and groove, but it was a no-go with this flooring. It worked out best to rip the tongue and groove sides on the table saw.

Two scrap boards were used to hold the table top boards in place. Gorilla wood glue, my nail gun and the Kreg multi-mark tool made this all come together quickly and easily. Care was taken to make sure these two boards would fit on the inside perimeter of the original coffee table base.
Add Hardwood Flooring Table Top
Not long ago, I purchased some thin baseboard stock at Vendors’ Village for a buck a piece. Sometimes 3/4 stock is just too thick for small projects like this. You can see I mitered the corners on the miter saw. Again, I used the wood glue and the nail gun to secure the boards.
I’m near the end of this five gallon bucket of off white oops paint! Of course I used plaster of paris to make another batch of my chalky paint primer.
Paint Table and New Table Top
The Super Finish Max Extra made painting this coffee table so easy. NOTE: I actually added extra brace boards on the underneath side of the table.
Attach Table Top with Pocket Screws
The table top was attached using the original pocket holes and pocket hole screws.
Glaze Queen Anne Coffee Table
I can’t stop using this glaze! Using this glaze is so much easier than waxing and buffing!
The beauty of this glaze is that you can totally control how dark the finished project turns out.
I love the new look of the damaged Queen Anne coffee table with the new hardwood flooring top. The wall color is Flannel from Behr. I love how it makes the living room look brighter and airier.
