A coffee table does a lot of work. It needs to hold books, magazines, drinks, food — even games on game night. You might want to put your feet up on it, or the kids might need a place for coloring. Plus it’s usually smack dab in the middle of the room, where you can’t miss it — so make sure it’s a good one.
Pour some tung oil on the surface of the wood. Work the oil into the wood with a soft cloth until no more oil will not absorb more maybe for 2 hours. Apply a second layer of oil over the first. In general, this coat will require less time to apply, because the pores of the wood are now full. Allow the oil to dry overnight before your teak coffee table.
Keep in mind that with most glass tops — if they are not inset — you’ll see a green tint on the sides. You can order a speciality glass that doesn’t have this tint, but it’s more expensive. On the other hand, perhaps you want your space to look cozier (and you need some storage). Stash baskets, trunks and old suitcases under simple legged coffee tables to ground spaces that are otherwise too open.
Upholstery aside, you can also find coffee tables made from glass, metal and stone, just to mention a few. A coffee table covered in mirrors can help a small living room look bigger, and a glass coffee table looks stunning on top of a brilliantly patterned rug. Because some modern man-made materials are easily molded into any shape, designers are creating more coffee tables with non-traditional forms. A stone coffee table (or one made to look like stone) adds a natural element to the space.
