Step one is always to clean the furniture piece well then sand the edges and add wood filler to any areas needing it
Mandala Stenciled IKEA Round Coffee Table
OOOOHHHMMMM... are you feeling the zen? When I saw this round coffee table I saw one of my mandala stencils right in the center for a zen like design.
Fusion Mineral Paint in coal black was brushed on in the direction of the wood grain using my Cling On short brush. Using a mister bottle helps keep the paint moving well when needed.
One coat was all that was needed to fresh up the paint.
Now for the fun part, the mandala stencil. My favorite is this prosperity mandala stencil from Cutting Edge. It comes in a variety of sizes to fit every project. This one is 24". I have used prosperity mandala on these other projects including the largest size on my deck to create a mandala rug that has been a top project on my blog.
I am also a fan of Cutting Edge Stencil Tools Kit too. Here are other Cutting Edge stencil projects.
I used a subtle metallic brown colored metallic paint to compliment the black.
The metallic paint needed a sealer so the entire top was clear poly coated with a damp sponge and 4 coats of clear poly.
There is a full detailed tutorial of this project linked at the bottom of this post which also had loads of videos.
This super sized coffee table has a lower shelf for storage and loads of eye appeal.
