Step 1 is to always clean your piece really well after sanding any loose finish.
From Boring to BOHO Coffee Table
This square light oak coffee table is no longer blah and boring.. it is now boho beautiful with paint. Let me share how I achieved this.
Paint the table
I brushed on Dixie Belle antebellum blue paint over all surfaces.
Add another color
Next was Dixie Belle peacock blue paint randomly brushed all over and blended in.
Add another layer
Then add another layer of the antebellum blue paint and blend some more.
Pick a Stencil
I chose this gorgeous mandala stencil from Cutting Edge stencils. See more projects I have done using mandala stencils including a huge "rug" on my deck.
Using navy paint with added Saltwash for texture, I rolled it over the stencil and walaa!
Seeing it will be used lots a durable clear coat was applied using my favorite technique; a damp sponge in long smooth strokes.
Isn't it beautiful and such a fresh cool look? Check out the detailed tutorial link below to see the matching end table and sofa table made over in completely different looks.
The sofa table is in a warm white farmhouse style and the end table a dark charcoal grey cerused oak finish.
