Stenciled Coffee Table by Offbeat + Inspired
Without a trace
The girls at Offbeat+Inspired have done it again. They never seem to skip a beat when it comes to conjuring up all sorts of creative DIY projects, and this one has us swooning for sure! A true testament to the age-old adage, “one person’s trash is another person’s treasure,” this formerly lackluster coffee table was found by one of the girls at a neighbor’s garage sale. Unsure of what to do with it at first, they almost gave up on it – but were so glad that they took it as an opportunity to be inspired instead! See their steps below to learn how you can recreate this gorgeous and unique look yourself!
Materials and Tools Needed
- Chalk Paint® – Old White
- Chalk Paint® – Paris Grey
- Clear + Dark Wax
- Stencil Creme
- Stencil brush
- I first painted the coffee table with Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan. The top color is Old White and the legs are Paris Grey.
- I stenciled the small French Floral Damask pattern on the top of the table using a stencil brush and stencil creme in Smoked Oyster. For in-depth instructions, visit Royal Design Studio’s “How To Stencil” page.
- After all of that dried, I lightly sanded the table top so it was completely smooth.
- I applied Annie Sloan Clear Wax to the table top and legs. I also used a small amount of Dark Wax on the table top.
- To create a bit more of a distressed look, I sanded the edges, corners and select areas of the table to allow the wood and old layers of paint to come through.
- Lastly, I wiped off excess dust from sanding and brought my newly finished coffee table into the living room.
