Hey there sweet Friends! Today I’m sharing another one of Jack’s makeovers. I picked this oak plant stand up for him at the thrift store for $10 a few weeks ago:
I figured he could paint this up pretty quick and simple and make some easy money on it, but he wanted to do a two toned look and add a stencil. He chose the colors and the stencil. (You know, Mom, that symbol you use with the three things on it.)
Here it is:
I’ve included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I love.
Didn’t he do a good job? I love the choices he made!
The original finish was water damaged, so he sanded that first with our orbital sander.
Then he painted the base in Pure White DIY Chalk Paint.
The top is painted in black DIY chalk paint that I had left over from this Pottery Barn-inspired coffee table.
He chose the stencil, but I did help a bit setting it up. We used spray adhesive (sprayed to the back of the stencil) to hold it in place and Rust-Oleum Satin Blossom White spray paint to paint it. We also made sure to tape paper all around to the edge of the stencil to prevent overspray. Just like I did for my kid’s whale table:
After giving it a light sanding, he finished it off with a coat of Annie Sloan’s clear wax.
I can’t leave without sharing what my six year old painted as well:
He was so proud. He also painted a bed slat with that same signature technique. 😀
I’ll be back on Thursday to share what we did with this shelf and frame:
Jack and I collaborated on this one…he was already out there getting right into painting this little shelf before I even knew it, so I didn’t get a before pic! That’s ok though…you can imagine. 🙂
UPDATE: Check out what we did with these pieces HERE now!
