Black and Gold MCM Coffee Table


Mid Century Modern Octagonal Coffee Table Gloss Black and Brass Gold

I am usually drawn to pieces that are different and unique so when I came across this MCM coffee table it was no surprise that I had to buy it to give it a makeover.  I love the modern design of the legs and the octagonal shape of the top, it's just not something that you see everyday.

For this makeover I wanted to do something different that would fit this table's modern design.  I decided to go with a gloss black on top and gold base.  My husband was not a fan of the color choices, he said the colors reminded him of the 90's metal bases with glass top tables, so many people owned back then. I didn't listen, I knew it would turn out amazing!

Shhh... my mom had them too!

Like always I did all the prep work first cleaning, sanding, priming, yada, yada, yada....  Then I sprayed the bottom with several thin coats of my favorite Rustoleum's metallic spray paint in gold.  After it was dry I painted the top in black, it took about five thin coats to get complete coverage.  Lastly, I sealed it with five thin coats of gloss polycrilic sanding between coats for a smooth finish.

It turned out amazing! The gloss black and the metallic gold look are a perfect match for this table.  I don't think it's either too feminine or too masculine.  I feel like it would suit anywhere from a glamorous lady's home to a professional, bachelor's apartment.  I can imagine this table in a very sleek condo, full of modern, clean lined furniture, with a nice tray on top and some decorative coffee table books.  Of course, I just had to take it for a spin in my own living room to see how it looks.

 Guess what?  The hubby doesn't hate it or think it looks like a flash back from the 90's anymore.  What do you think, is the black and gold outdated or do you think it works in this era?
