In this post I’ll be sharing How to Stencil and Stain a Side Table.
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 our family.
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.
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.
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?
