Plum Cute Stenciled Table
I don’t use the term “plum cute” very often but I thought it applied here.
The table is cute, cute, cute!
Today is our monthly “themed furniture” day and the theme this month is “small tables”.
The field was wide open as far as type of paint technique and finish.
I bought the table at my favorite junk shop for a couple of dollars…I think…could have been $5.
It’s in pretty bad shape with missing and bubbled up veneer and damages to the finish.
I’ve been putting off using this stencil I ordered from Royal Design Studio because I wasn’t sure how hard it would be to line it up and make it look nice.
I thought “what the heck I’m going to try it on the table”.
What’s the worst that can happen….paint over it?
The photo above shows the steps I used for the project.
I selected off-white paint to contrast with the original finish.
The stencil has a “register” or marks on each side to make it easy to line up when doing a large area.
Whoever came up with that idea is a genius.
I stenciled the table, let the paint dry, then used hemp oil all over the table.
It perked up the finish….even the rough areas.
I like the finished look and really love the stencil design.
Let me know what you think…. then take the tour.

Yes Kathy, I'd say that is one "plum cute" table! Amazing that you got it that cute with just a stencil and some hemp oil. Very nicely done. 🙂
Too cute Kathy!
What a cute way to dress up a little table. The unexpected line of stars on the bottom is my favorite!

Great save on this table Kathy! I think the stencil adds just the right amount of punch. Cute!
Such a great idea. I really like the stencil for this style table. The oil makes all the difference. I think I need some very soon. I have a chest that my grandpa made and it looks like this oil could be what I need to highlight it. You are right, your table IS plum cute!

looks like a cute little game table, that hemp oil is awesome xx
The stencil is perfect for this table. I am not familiar with Miss Mustard Seed's hemp oil and definitely will check it out after seeing how great it makes the finish on your table look.
Great job! This is really neat, love it!
