Create a custom coffee table by selecting urns or pedestals for the base. Make sure they have large enough openings or tops to support the size board you choose.Tools & Materials
Cut a pine or birch board to the size specifications that best suit your living space. Smooth any rough edges with sandpaper.
Apply a primer to the entire board, and let dry. Next apply white paint, and allow it to dry completely.
Add pewter glaze by applying with a paintbrush in a swirled or rough brush pattern. Let dry, and then use a clear protective sealant to finish the tabletop.
Attach decorative trim by hammering upholstery tacks through the trim and into the edge of the board.
