A Up-cycle Table & A Stencil Giveaway

Happy Happy weekend my friends!
I hope you are already enjoying every moment of it!
And getting a little crafty while I am at it!
I had some fun with an old grundy table...
That is now one of my favorite little tables.


Oohhhh my heart just flutters a little bit when I see the curves of this table.



And how about this stenciled top?  
This is one of my first experiences with stenciling and ohhh I loved it!
Are you ready for a good old fashioned BEFORE photo?!


Yes in all of it's stained up bright red glory.... 
this table was needing some help!

Here is what I did!!


FIRST:
chalk paint (old white + a bit of province).


NEXT:
Sand sand sand.


Andddd stare for a moment.... because that looks much much better.

Okay and then get back to work.


Stain and prime (I used an all in one).
And here is my official Staining tip---I wear disposable gloves and use a little scrap of a towel that I throw away after.
And I am sure you know this tip buttt---- be sure to go with the grain when you are staining!


Anddd let it DRY.


Finally grab your stencil and get back to work with that good old chalk paint!


Roll on and remove the stencil.
{Check out this you tube video for more help!!}


Finally just go around the edges and do a little "white washing" 
to get a nice bled from the sides to the top.


Much better than the red right?


And I just really am loving this paisley patterned stencil
It is so fun and whimsical.
I can't stop thinking about where else I would like to use it!


ahhhh but this is good for now!!!


Sooooo what do you think?!  Would you like to win your own stencil?

This is so wonderful darling that you made - real bijou! I love the combination of wood & white stencil painting. I fully understand that it has become one of your favorites - it would be the same with me :-)
Thank you for the detailed description of the steps!

I am torn between a few Damask and Tree stencils. I think I will just narrow it down to 4 and let the hubby have final pick if I win. :P
