Teaming up with Tarah in our DIY blog hop this month with projects for our living rooms! (Make sure and check out all of the living room projects following this post)
I purchased a little side table from a thrift store. It wasn’t in bad shape, just need a few little repairs and updating to be loved again.
Here’s the original table, and it looked like it originally came from Target according to the label.
Updated Side Table
There were some minor scratches, and it had fallen over creating a gouge in the table side. I used wood filler to fill the hole, let it dry, and then sanded it.
I cleaned the whole table with Denatured Alcohol and Krud Kutter.
I painted the top of the table with 2 coats of Folk Art Home Decor Chalk Paint in the color Castle as my base coat. I followed the bottle’s instructions for the time between coats and then let it dry completely.
I painted the accents in the base with Folk Art Home Decor Chalk Paint in the color Metallic Silver.
I painted the entire top with the Folk Art Home Decor Chalk Paint in the color Metallic Silver. Once it was painted, I let it dry completely.
I placed my Plaid Folk Art Welcome Stencil in the center of the table. I used Folk Art Home Decor Chalk Paint in the color white to stencil the pattern on. I only stenciled the wreath on, not the word welcome. I loaded my Plaid stencil brush with paint, and then dabbed it to get most of the paint back off the brush. I then pounced the stencil brush up and down onto the stencil to add the paint to the table. I carefully peeled the stencil away and let it dry completely.
I painted the top with Folk Art Home Decor Varnish to protect the table top.
