How do you stencil on wood? I found this little table at a thrift store and was challenged to upcycle it. I used a stencil and loved how it turned out.
Here is the original table that I found at the thrift store. The first thing I did was clean the table and glass.
Materials Needed for this porject
- Stencil Brush
- Optional – Stencil Tape
Steps for Stenciling
I painted the surface of the table with Folk Art Home Decor Chalk Paint in the color Silver Shadow. I gave it one coat, let that dry completely, and then gave it a second coat.
While the table top was drying I painted the legs with Folk Art Home Decor Wood Tint in white. I painted it on, and then wiped off the excess. Although very pretty, it wasn’t the look I was going for so I decided to paint the legs with Folk Art Home Decor Chalk Paint in the color white.
Once everything was dry, it was time to stencil. I placed the stencil on the table in the center and secured the stencil with stencil tape. This would prevent the stencil from moving around while I was working with it.
I dipped my stencil brush into the paint, and then I tapped it on a paper plate to offload as much paint as possible. This will help prevent bleeding underneath the stencil. I then tapped the stencil brush onto the table and stencil. I continued tapping until I got the look I wanted. When I ran out of paint, I dipped the brush into the paint, offloaded the paint on the paper plate, then continued tapping on the stencil.
Once I got the entire stencil covered, I carefully peeled up the stencil.
I checked to make sure there wasn’t wet paint under the stencil, and I moved it to a new spot on the table and taped it down. I was careful not to place anything on the other stencil while it was drying.
I continued around the entire table. Once everything was stenciled I let it dry completely.
I placed the glass top back on the table and it was ready to be used.
