Table Makeover

This has been one of, if not my most frustrating project in a long time.  I found this little table at a flea market for $8 and though this would be a quick easy project.  Sand, prime, paint, stencil and clear coat.  Two weeks max.   Sanding – easy.  Priming – no problem.   Black paint – looked great.  Stencil – well that’s another story.  

Let's just say that I had problems.  I had all sorts of problems, I was not a happy camper.   The final score.   Stencil 3, Pam 0. 


That was to be the end of my table saga. I was ready to leave it black.  Mr. Manly Man knew I was frustrated.  The entire family knew I frustrated.   When I got home from work one day last week, I came home to this.  He decided to give the stencil a try, with the airbrush.  Success!





I am so glad he jumped in and finished this up it looks like I wanted it to. It can now go to it's new owner, my niece, at the KU (Rock Chalk) dorms.
