This little table is going to be for an event at our church we do once a year called “Real woman”. It will be given as one of the give away’s in the draw. I was asked to do a small makeover on a piece, but trying to find a small table believe it or not was not that easy, every time I went and checked in at the goodwill or bible for missions I came up empty-handed. Then my daughter in-law mentioned she had this table so I thought let me see what I can come up with.
It’s not a big table, it’s the size of a postage stamp, but I wanted to do something that would make a small impact! At first I was going for a beach themed table with some stenciled words in bright colors , but that didn’t work out so I painted over the top again and came up with this idea.
I bought some stencils at Micheal”s so after my failure at the beach themed table, I decided on the one with french script and did that in a Metallic color, and then I stenciled the Paris tower as well over that in a black color.
For this project I used my homemade chalk paint recipe again, I mixed up a behr tester pod in Cloud white. I then distressed along edge of table and on the legs as well. I sanded it down with 220 grit paper and waxed it a little bit. I applied the stencil first before I waxed the top of it.
So here is the outcome, I hope they will find a spot in their home and enjoy it!
This is the stencil I bought at Micheal’s it was 27.99 but I always use a 50% coupon, and this one stencil had so many stencils inside it so it was worth it.
These little tester pods are great for mixing up and doing a couple of small jobs the cost is only 3.99 for a behr pod. Thanks for stopping by!
I believe my next project will be starting the laundry room. I will start by painting the room first and the rest will probably be done in stages as the budget allows us to complete the rest. See you soon!
