Revamp an old craft table… grab those stencils!

Hello there… it’s Leeann here with a revamping project for all of us to do. I have this old craft table sitting in the garage and I normally cover it with a cloth and paint away. But not this week I decide to clear it and give it a wee face lift, with the help of a few stencils  from the crafters workshop which also arrived this week too.

Here’s what stencils I used: 12 x 12 Word Association

12 x 12 Cathedral of love

12 x 12 Repeating Pods

12 x 12 Windmills

Other materials: Assorted house or craft paints, brushes, rollers, masking tape, cloth for dusting, electric sander.

Step 1: I start with an old painted table using some masking tape to secure a few of the stencils in place. I also wanted a few different colored stripes.

 Step 3: Use a roller and carefully roll over the stencils. A couple of coats and allow to dry.

 Step 4: Once the paint is dry remove masking tapes and stencils. Grab your electric sander and whizz over the top a few times.

 This is the result of a sand… love it!

 Step 5:  Grab a another stencil and add just a wee touch more in a few random spots. Allow to dry and give a wee sand to blend in.

 and again the end result. Its kinda cool don’t yay think.

  1. What a great way to use those stencils. A great inspirational piece for me as I have one of those “distressed” tables that is in the desperate need of a makeover!
