Now back to the post… I found this little coffee table and it was in pretty bad shape.. I love a bit of a challenge as you may know and I thought it could easily be fixed up and totally transformed!


The sides were damaged and ripped, so I used some wood filler and sanded over to get a nice smooth finish.

before and after


I used Annie Sloan’s chalk paint in Olive for the spindles and General Finishes Java Gel stain for the table itself.  I thought it was a lovely contrast and the colours complimented each other nicely.   I waxed the table using clear wax and then went over with dark wax to get a nice rustic feel to the table.


The top was a nice blank canvas for my stencil and the Cafe de Paris stencil was perfect for it!

I taped the stencil on the table and painted over it using the Annie Sloan’s chalk paint. Then simply removed the stencil while the paint was still wet.  Once dry, I waxed over and the piece was done!!


What do you think?

  1. This stencil would look fantastic on our old kitchen chairs which i am planning to breathe life back into.

  2. Look at your talent showing through with this project, you amaze me how knowledgeable you are for re-surfacing furniture, The stencil adds a really pretty effect!!

    THanks for sharing, hope you have a great week!

  3. When we moved into our house the previous owners left a very big oak wall unit in the dining room. We’ve been looking into ways on how to update it. We’ve been thinking of chalk painting, but was worried that it would look a bit plain, however, these stencils would be ideal to break up the light flat areas of paint.

  4. I was just looking at my coffee table the other day thinking it might be time to get a new one. I didn’t think of stenciling it as an option to give it new life. What an idea.

  5. id give tese to a lady i used to clean for shes always shabby chic’ing and stencilling something,she would love them very much!!
