This table was a challenge from top to bottom. It almost didn't fit in my car and I was stumped at how to cover the uneven top. I finally decided on plywood cut to size and it worked perfectly! Then there was the question of how to paint it? I couldn't do something boring or you wouldn't be here, right?! I decided just to go for it with tons of color in spray bottles and DecoArt Texture Medium. It was one of those projects that I had absolutely no idea how it would look in the end. Truth be told, I'm still on the fence about it, but it's growing on me. Take chances with color and texture and don't forget to Make Your Mark!

STUFF I USED
Old coffee table
Amazing Goop II Max
Americana Matte Spray Sealer/Finisher
DecoArt Texture Medium in Bright Gold and Aquamarine
DecoArt Fleur Medallion Stencil
Americana Decor Chalky Finish in Reminisce, Treasure, Bestow & Victorian
1. Glue plywood (cut to size) on top of your table with Amazing Goop II Max
*My table top was destroyed and needed a new surface
2. Paint the base with chalky finish in Bestow
3. Mix the Treasure chalky finish with water in a spray bottle so that it sprays easily.
4. Spray the sides of the table about 12" at a time
5. Immediately spray water on the paint so that it starts to drip down the sides
6. While that dries, paint the table top with Victorian
7. Mix Reminisce with enough water so that it sprays easily
8. Spray the sides and edge of the table
9. Immediately spray water on the paint so that it starts to drip down the sides
and mix with the other colors
10. Center and adhere the Fleur Medallion stencil on the table
11. Using a palette knife, spread the Bright Gold texture medium throughout the
middle of the stencil
12. Scoop up some Aquamarine Texture Medium and finish the edges of the stencil
blending the two colors together with the knife where they meet
*Seal when finished
Funky and fabulous!
Hippy, Drippy Chic!
