Pressed Tin Coffee Table

Pin It!

This coffee table used to be old and stained and with a chipped wood finish.I refinished this old coffee table for my son's house. I first painted it black. I then created the "Pressed Tin Tiles" using the 10 Second Studio Big Mama 02 mold and the QuicKutz 4 X 12 adhesive metal sheets. I cut the metal sheets to 4 X 4 and then ran it through the Cuttlebug. I then applied Adirondack Alchohol Inks in a couple of colors using the felt applicator. When I liked the look I sanded off the top to reveal the design. All the center ones are in shades of brown and the outer cut tiles are in a darker tone. I finished it by covering the table with glass to protect the tiles and make clean up easy. He now loves his one of a kind table.

Very nice! I'm going to keep this idea in mind! How'd you adhere the tin tiles to the table top?

This is fabulous! Thanks so much for sharing it with us! Makes me want to re-do my table!

Another wonderful use of metal! Wondering about the weight of the glass, did you use spacking on the back of the tiles? So pretty!! How I love Tim's (Rangers) alcohol inks on metal -- fun! Gorgeous!

Hi,very nice blog and you have done great work in your blog post.I really liked it very much related to Coffee Table.

Christie, I've just seen the video of this on Youtube and I have to say it's absolutely fabulous. You have taken a beaten up old table and turned it into something quite beautiful, and it looks extremely expensive! The Cuttlebug is an awesome tool, isn't it, but even more so in the hands of a true artist. Very well done indeed!
