It’s time once again to join together with some of my favorite blogging friends to bring you a fun themed furniture makeover. This month’s theme is flowers. Last month’s theme was “Bold”. I redid a $5 yard sale chair. The theme for the month before was “Metallic”. I shared a thrift store side table.
I found it a bit more challenging to incorporate flowers into a piece of furniture, but I think I pulled it off.
This table was a $5 yard sale find, and kind of boring as is:
Here is its pretty new makeover:
It was rock solid, but the top had a bit of discoloration:
Perfect for a new paint job and a pretty stencil!
I used Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Ironstone. I did not use a bonding agent, but I still didn’t get much in the way of chipping or flaking, or any at all actually. The coverage was perfect though. Here it is with two coats of paint prior to sanding:
It still could use one more coat for complete coverage, but I wanted to sand quite a bit anyway so I stopped there.
To incorporate flowers into this table, I decided to stencil a ring of flowers on the top. I penciled very lightly around a lamp shade as a guide for my circle:
Then I stenciled my flowers in ASCP in Duck Egg blue all along the circle. This is a stencil I bought years ago.
I used to think of myself as “stencil-challenged” but I think I’m finally getting the hang of it. 🙂
A good sanding, a coat of clear wax, and a salvaged ceramic knob finish it off:
I added a little blue painted detail to the legs as well:
A little surprise in the drawer is always fun…
I felt like the bottom shelf needed something, but I decided to leave it alone since it will likely be covered anyway.
My hydrangea in the background are just getting set to open up. I can’t wait to fill my house with their beautiful blooms!
Hope you enjoyed this little makeover. Be sure to visit my friends for more floral inspired furniture transformations!
I’m already looking forward to a beautiful weekend! 🙂
