End Table Makeover

2 Materials
A small group of bloggers joined me in a challenge to take something you already have and update it with a stencil.
I recently purchased an end table for my living room from Hobby Lobby. It was a great price but it had a nice nick in it. I though about filling it in with putty and a black sharpie but never got around to it.
I decided to use the stencil to cover the problem spot and offset the pattern, placing the center of the flower on the nicked spot.
It covered the spot well but I got a little heavy handed with the spray adhesive I used to hold down the stencil. In the past I have had trouble with bleed through and stencils when I just taped them down, so I started using spray adhesive and that really helped. Just use a light hand when spraying it.
A little Goo Gone and nail polish remover cleaned up the glue and then I sprayed some polyurethane on top to protect the finish.
Now the table looks great and the gold paint works well with the lamp and the warm tones in the couch. I you like fun thrifty projects like this one you may be interesting in seeing more by clicking here
