7 coffee table makeovers that won't cost you a ton and look totally high end

Every living room needs a coffee table, but if you're on a tight budget, you run the risk of getting stuck with an ugly old table from the thrift store!
However, even the most unappealing coffee table can be turned into something beautiful if you put your DIY skills to good use. Check out these ideas for some awesome inspiration!
1. Distressed coffee table (h/t Cozy Country Living)
This beautiful distressed coffee table is way easier to DIY than you might think! All you need to do is paint the table with chalk paint... and then sand it when it's dry for that gorgeous distressed look.
2. Two tone coffee table (h/t Lolly Jane)
This two-tone coffee table is another project that really shows you the magical results you can get from a fresh coat of paint! The contrast between the light and the dark looks so elegant.
3. Farmhouse style coffee table (h/t Create Craft Love)
I simply love this rustic farmhouse coffee table! The blogger actually removed the original table top and replaced it with a new one — this is a great way to upcycle a table that might otherwise never get used again!
4. Marble top coffee table (h/t I Heart Organizing)
Marble contact paper is amazing, and it can be used for so many different things! Here it was used to completely transform an old glass coffee table — isn't it stylish?
5. Floral-stenciled coffee table (h/t Offbeat And Inspired)
This floral-stenciled coffee table is so pretty and feminine! However, you could copy this idea and use a different stencil if floral isn't your style — this would look good with almost any pattern.
6. Chalkboard top coffee table (h/t Liz Marie Blog)
I don't know about you, but I think a chalkboard top coffee table would be so fun. You could use it to write little reminders or notes for the people you live with, and as a bonus, it's really easy to make!
7. DIY upholstered ottoman (Not So Newlywed McGees)
This DIY upholstered ottoman looks so professional! Believe it or not, there's almost no sewing involved — the only thing you have to do with a needle and thread is sew on the buttons.
