Have you seen all the numbers projects on Pinterest? There are numbers on tables, walls, glasses…you name it. I stenciled numbers on a coffee table and a chair and they are very cute!

Stencil Numbers On Furniture

This is the table I bought at a local thrift store for $20.

The iron base was a little beat up and it was also black which I didn’t care for. I used the Rust-Oleum Metallic Paint & Primer In One to spray the base. The color is Oil Rubbed Bronze and it’s a really really dark brown almost black but the metallic element makes it look really rich looking.

I first painted the table top an off-white. My plan was to stencil individual numbers in all different sizes on the table top. I went to Hobby Lobby to buy some larger number stencils and I picked up a couple of packs of stencil letters that the store person assured me had numbers also…..they didn’t. Rethinking….. I pulled out all my stencil packs and went with plan B.

I laid out the numbers like so.

Then I took my can of Rust-Oleum Oil Rubbed Bronze and started spraying.

The problem was….I started running out of paint. I had used that can of spray paint on several hardware projects.

I sprayed and sprayed until the can was empty. I didn’t get complete coverage but I kind of liked the look…it grew on me.

The chair was going to be number seven. Don’t ask me why…I don’t have an answer. I didn’t have a really big number seven but I did have a large metal number seven that was an address number or door number or something like that.

So I made my own stencil from the plastic backing that was in the large stencil package {the one with no numbers}. The number on the chair became 77 because everything was off center with just the 7….I didn’t measure so good….so I added the second little seven!

  1. Very cute, especially love the use of the way you incorporated the word (NO) with the actual number!

  2. Kinda like that table. I missed out on a similar table at our local thrift store for $10, seems like these things are available when I’m broke. I liked the top of table I lost out on, was kinda rough and had a metal base. I have a can of same spray paint you used so would have painted base in oil rubbed bronze.
    Not sure what top would have been I’d been thinking about the table for couple weeks. When I finally had money it was gone. They won’t hold things and I can certainly understand why.
    The number idea on your table is great, love the look, lots of different style numbers that give it a great look. I’ve bought those paper letters/numbers (sometimes) also.
    Hope your hubs is doing well. Are you having to tie him down so he’ll take care of himself? Happy days

  3. i think the numbers are cool and i like that you have all kinds instead of one or two didn’t know it could be that easy xx
