So I found this table at my favorite thrift store for $12.95, so I started by sanding down the top to the bare wood. I wanted the base different from the top so I found the perfect color for the base LUCKILY the paint was free as my local hardware store was giving away their newest paint as a promo- which is a primer/paint in one from Clarke & Kensington
Then the next step was to start my stencil in white on the top of table. The stencil is from Cutting Edge Stencils
The next step was to stain the top over the stencil, I used a dark walnut stain. I love the way my new end table came out!
