Petite Paris Side Tables

Welcome…I have a cute makeover for you today!

My Mom had these two petite side tables in her attic that she had painted and stenciled a while ago. She never was happy with the results and offered them to me to redo for my booth.

Of course I’ll take them!

Here they are with their stencil:


Not terrible, but for this to work the stencil needed to be oval. And not brown.

After I sanded the stencil away and repainted the top, I decided to give these sweet antique tables a French accent:

I think the French graphic makes them much more sophisticated. (The angle of the shot makes the graphic seem off-center, but it is centered in real life.)

The French graphic is from the Graphics Fairy. I used this method to transfer the image and then painted it in with acrylic paint.

A light sanding here and there and a coat of wax finishes them off.

  1. Girl how did you find the time to squeeze in a furniture makeover during the holidays? Your energy blows me away! Those are great tables and the graphic transformation is perfect. I bet these don’t last long in your booth.

  2. Even though you traded a circle for a circle, it works! Great job!

  3. What a pretty quick makeover!?! Hope they sell fast. Merry Christmas!

  4. LOVE this!! I’m so new to all of this – wanting to do some french graphics on a few little end tables for fun, but I’m wondering if you have any tips on how you find your graphics? I notice many are from the graphics fairy, when I click your link it just goes to her homepage, and she has thousands of posts lol…how do I find some of the frecnh graphics you’ve used for your projects? I tried searching by category under “french” and didn’t see them there…

    • Thanks, Julie! I usually find my Graphics by googling “French Graphics” and looking under “Images”. You can also search Pinterest for the same if you have a Pinterest account. Hope this helps! XO
