I found the base at a thrift store. It was in great shape and only cost $9.00 to purchase. I then added a solid wood top from Home Depot.
After a bit of sanding, a coat of primer, and a coat of black paint, I was ready to go!
I wanted the edge of the top to remain black, so I taped it off with painters tape.
I first found the center of the table by measuring in from both sides and making a mark to determine the center of the table. I lined up the center of our 8″ Fiore Tile Stencil over the pencil mark in the center of the table. I stenciled it with white acrylic paint.
I then lined up the outer elements of the stencil with the previous stenciled tile and repeated the design across and down the table. It was easy!
After a quick coat of satin polycrylic (which doesn’t yellow), I was done.
The finished table turned out absolutely adorable!
This is a great stencil for floors, back splashes and walls as well. It comes in 6, 8 and 10″ sizes for your particular needs.
Then using light pressure, dip your stencil brush in to darker gray paint, wipe off the excess and swirl the bristles over the stencil openings.
Turning the stencil each time you repeat it, gives that pretty random effect.
I painted the cabinet trim, the same darker gray paint to match then used the same stencil with joint compound to create a raised design on the cabinet door front. I added black paint to the joint compound to pre-color it.
Simply use a plastic scraper, or even a credit card to smooth the compound over the stencil openings.
Gently un-tape the stencil and peel it back to reveal the raised design. Now, let it dry completely.
I added a cute new handle that I got from Hobby Lobby, moving it to the upper edge of the door for more convenience. Now it’s an adorable storage unit that I will put in my work room!
