Stencil top coffee table

Well first things first.....

SCHOOL'S OUT FOR SUMMER!!!! (Yes I know you're probably singing Alice Cooper's famous song in your head right now but I can't seem to contain my excitement!!) I have quite a few pieces of furniture that I will be painting in the next few days. Yes days...not weeks!

 I got this table from on of my sweet hubby's family members that recently renovated their house. Score!



Nothing too exiting, but I love the legs! You know how I feel about legs!



I knew I wanted to stencil the top so I took a trip to Hobby Lobby and found a large stencil that would make doing the top quick and easy...or so I thought. I started by painting the table solid black by Behr.

If you are ADD like me, stop right now. Don't attempt this project any further. It about killed me to stencil a section, let it dry and then line up the stencil to do another section. I got very impatient and would try and do a section before the other one would dry, epic fail I ended up repainting the whole top black and starting over.
Here is the top....

Here is the table complete!


I'm really in love with it! Sadly
I have nothing black and white in my house, so it's going to the store ;)


One last look at Before....Meets After!

Very nice. I cannot believe that is a stencil. I am impressed by people like you who can look at something and get an idea and even create it. I really like it.

I love how your table turned out. It looks fantastic. I love the legs too. I used that same stencil on some black fabric last week for pillows I made. They look just like your table.

Wow, you would never guess it was the same table! Great job! Very unique, too!

That is a beautiful table! - Especially those legs! I'm pretty sure a table like that would encourage me to re-do an entire room around it as a focal point. Love it!! :)

Definitely a new follower after seeing this - I look forward to seeing more of your projects!

I have a similar table, same color on top but egg shell blue on bottom. From Ethan Allen. I would like to paint it black. Just paint right over? My husband is going to freak over this but it needs to be updated and the side table that goes with it was ruined on top by an oil leak from a diffuser type thing.

There are many types of modern coffee tables on the market. They are available in all sizes and styles and come made of different materials.

What kind of paint did you use for the stencil? Did you seal it when you finished? If so, what did you use?

Tayci Mecham said...

Just started following your blog! Love it!!!! I am way more inspired to do my own revamps of our hand-me-down furniture. This is such a great idea. We have a table just like it (not with those amazing legs though, sadly!) I need to repaint it. I was wondering how much paint it take to paint it?
