Upcycled Winter/Christmas Snowflake Table

5 Materials
2 Hours

I like to transform smaller and simple thrifted furniture pieces into winter/Christmas decor. These smaller pieces make great accent pieces and are also very easy to pack away after the season is over.

 This little table was my best thrift shop find last week. It's not an antique. It has a tag, "made in China", on the bottom, but it is all wood.

I used Dixie Belle Chalk Paint in Caviar (a very rich black) to paint my side table. .The Dixie Belle Paint company's website has a lot of great information on how to use it's products. I have referred to it many times. I used the Zibra PB100LZS Grip-n-Glide 1-Inch Square Paint Brush for the very first time today.  It made painting the legs a breeze, and it leaves almost NO brush marks.

After I had brushed on two coats of Dixie Belle Paint in Caviar, I lightly sanded the edges with 220 grit sandpaper.

This paper snowflake stencil is part of the FolkArt Holiday Value Stencil Pack that I have used on several projects in the past. There are 25 other very usable stencils from almost all holidays in this package.

I used Dixie Belle Paint in Drop Cloth to pounce on my snowflakes. I sealed the stencils and brought out the rich hue of Caviar, using Dixie Belle Paint Best Dang Wax in Clear. I applied it with a clean, lint free rag. I think it's adorable!

The table is perfect for tabletop trees or maybe even a poinsettia.

I hope you can find a little table at the thrift shop to make your own snowflake table. My stenciled sweater chair project can be found HERE and Nordic style stool HERE.

    I actually have an antique table similar to that one. It was my grandmother’s and 2 more in my storage room. Planning on getting them out soon. I’m going to restore all of them soon. My mother would have a fit and my grandmother would turn over in her grave if I’d stencil them. I’m just going to restore them back to their original stain colors. Yours is very pretty though.
