Sherwin-Williams Coral Reef Entry Table

I was so excited when Sherwin-Williams contacted me to do a fun little paint project for their 2015color of the year announcement- Coral Reef SW 6606!!

In my usual fashion, I decided,.”Well, I can’t just paint something, I have to make this bigger!”   So, I got to thinking it would be cool to make a fun entry table…

Because time is ALWAYS a factor, I really love to upcycle things that aren’t being used. I drove over to my local Habitat for Humanity Store and luckily they had all the cabinets on sale 50% off, obviously it was fate.  As I was looking I found a 12″ x 36″ inch oak kitchen cabinet, that was perfect for what I had in mind.  I bought it for a whopping $12.50 and went on my merry way!!

We had to run by a lumber store to grab a few pieces of wood, namely 2×2’s, a couple small moldings and a table top.  Anything else used on the project came from our scrap supply!  Then we got started.

Last but not least I ran to my local Sherwin-Williams Paint store to pick up all the paint I would need for the project!

First we removed the door.   *It is a cool long skinny shape.  We might need to make something out of it later… ya know the normal thing like a coat hook scarf rack or towel rack something!

We had to do a little trimming on one side to make the front face frame an equal size all around.

The sides were covered with a small piece of scrap plywood and then wrapped with molding and puttied within and inch of their lives…. sand, sand, sand.  There you go, smooth as a baby’s you know what.

Because the cabinet face frame has a slight hangover to help line cabinets up when you hand them on the wall, we had to put some spacers on the top.  Nail and glue the properly cut to size table top to these spacers, then attach the 1/2 cove molding to the spacers.

Prepare the legs.  We used our Kreg Jig to make it easier.

For the top piece of the legs, we had the jig holes face the cabinet, where they will be hidden once they are attached to the cabinet body.Sherwin-Williams Coral Reef Painted Console Table @Remodelaholic-2749

On the base of the table, make sure that the screw jig holes are pointing toward the floor so they are all hidden. )no patching required!   (In the picture shown above, the table base is upside-down, so you can see all the holes.) Sherwin-Williams Coral Reef Painted Console Table @Remodelaholic-2750

I used Sherwin-Willams, Pro Classic, Matte paint, in Coral Reef SW 6606.

I used both a brush and a foam roller to make sure that there weren’t too many brush marks.  Light sanding between coats if I had too much texture.Sherwin-Williams Coral Reef Painted Console Table @Remodelaholic-2778

 Now for the After!

  1. Love your console entry table made from a kitchen cabinet! What a great repurpose!!!

    The color is beautiful….first I’ve heard of 2015 color of the year. 🙂

    1. I recently saw one at Target so they do have them. I am not sure if these are in your area , but Ross (Dress for Less) have them too for about half the price. Albeit Target is more likely to have an abundance of them in stock where Ross (where I live there are several) might only have a few at various locations. Just thought I’d throw that out there. Love this website all the projects, ideas and tips very cool!!

  2. I work for Hobby Lobby, I’m in charge of the Home Accent department. It’s really interesting to see all of the merchandise I work with on a daily basis actually used for staging. You really love HL! (yes, that pink glass vase was pretty).
