This table is a part of a set of nesting tables. My mother-in-law bought them at a garage sale, $7 for the pair. I remember she was so proud of them, and the price she paid! I refinished them for her many years ago. When she passed away they were given to my husband and me. The tables have since been in need of a new finish, what with moving a few times with them, along with the usual wear a piece of furniture takes on. I decided to refinish one at the moment. I’ll save the other one for later. 😉 In this post I’ll be sharing How to Stencil and Stain a Side Table.
This table is incredibly solid! I started the refinishing process by sanding the top.
I then, stenciled a lovely flower design on the bare wood. I used an off white, satin finish latex paint. I was inspired by this table from Domestic Imperfection.
The table was stained with espresso colored stain. When the stain was dry, I applied a couple coats of polyurethane, sanding between the application process of the polyurethane.
I love the sweet touch adding this stenciled embellishment gives! What do you think? Have you thought about refinishing a piece of your furniture?
