Stencil A Small Kids Table With Flowers

Stencil a small kids table with flowers or any fun design and they will love it. The table I stenciled belongs to Miss Sofi. I stenciled the table and painted her chair….she doesn’t like change….unless it’s her idea. I could be in big trouble.

Sometimes you can showcase the original furniture finish with touches of paint and this project is a good example. It was also super easy and I have all the details for you.

You have to admit….that table is cute. I think Miss Sofi will like it. The contrast between the white paint and original dark finish of the table is just perfect.

I bought the kid’s table months ago. I don’t even remember where it came from. The chair came from a local antique/flea market shop.

The table is in the Owen Workshop and Sofi uses it to paint her masterpieces. The chair has been with her desk in the house. She noticed the chair had been replaced with another but we were able to gloss over that and move on!

I found the flower stencils at Hobby Lobby and got a brand new can of Krylon White Gloss paint for the flowers. The glossier the better.

Paint goes a long way when stenciling. Really, it just takes a tiny bit. I poured a little paint on a paper plate then dipped the brush in the paint and wiped most of the paint off on a paper towel. That’s how you do it. The secret to stenciling is a dry brush….read a complete tutorial by clicking here.

I planned to use different flower designs but after contemplating (big word) it for a while I decided just to use two different sizes of the same design. I stenciled them on willy-nilly, no measuring or anything. When stenciling designs I usually run some of the design off the edges or overlap designs.

Chairs are not my favorite thing to paint. There are usually a lot of rungs or curved details. I usually try to give the chair a coat of spray paint before I brush on a coat of paint. The spray paint gets into all the joints better.

I used the same white Krylon paint for the chair that I used for the stenciling. The JTS got ahold of the camera. There’s a reason I don’t post photos of myself working on projects in the workshop.

I distressed the chair and the original green paint shows through a little. I did the distressing with an electric palm sander and 100 grit sandpaper.

My first thought was to give the table an overall paint job in a bright color and stencil bright flowers all over it. I’m glad I worked with the original stained finish.

The little table is a class act now. What do you think of the stencils and the white paint?

Sofi likes her table. I wasn’t there when she first saw the table but I’m told she put both hands over her mouth and said “I can’t believe it”….she’s not dramatic at all 🙂 She didn’t want me to take her picture so I had to sneak around to get this one. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week, Kathy

  1. I sold the table a while ago. Sofi is too big for it now. Yes! The Grands are the best.

  2. When I first saw the picture I thought the table had been painted in a black lacquer with the white daisies on top. I thought that looked amazing! It wasn’t until the end that I realized it was the wooden table. That also looks nice but I think the black lacquer would have looked even better, sorry LOL! Good job!

  3. Super cute.. I see the original post was in 2014 – 4 years ago. Does Miss Sofi still have the table & chair? She sure is a cutie!!! The Grands are the best for sure!

  4. You are too funny Pam! You have inspired me to build something. I will be 60 in less than a month. YOu’re only as old as you feel…right…:-)

  5. Wow!Thanks Kathy,you truly made my day. I have never has anyone respond on a blog before and it felt like someone famous wrote me a note. The first time I picked up a hammer and made something I couldn’t afford otherwise, was the beginning of a new chapter in my life. I do wish you luck, but I know with perseverance we women can accomplish anything. By the way when I taught myself to woodwork I was 50 something. I’m now 65 and still have the passion.

  6. Thanks Pam. Anna has a kids playhouse plan that I’m thinking for doing. I’m not much on building things so wish me luck. Thanks for the nice comment!!!

  7. Isn’t it great to be a gram? I love doing things for my grands and great-grands. I follow Ana White, using her plans to build them things then decorating them. Now I’ll be following you for ideas too. Keep up the good work.

  8. Wow!! I love leaving the table stained and adding the daisies!!! Genius! Such a sweet look!!!! ~Christy

  10. Oh my goodness, Kathy! I LOVE this! The daisies look fantastic against the original top. Your granddaughter has to love this! I have a similar table with two chairs that I bought for my three year old son recently and I am still undecided on what to do with it. SO many possibilities 🙂

  11. Adorable, I’m sure she’ll love it! I’m glad you didn’t paint the whole table, the darkness looks great against the white daisies. The chair looks perfectly chippy too. 🙂

  12. i really luv this set!!! i did almost the same thing with a chair that a neighbor gave me….it was old and beat up so, i painted the whole chair black and applied gold polka dots on the seat and the top piece …luv it!

  13. Sofi will love it! It looks so fun and perfect. I am inspired by your ability to see beyond what you have. Just absolutely lovely, Kathy.
