Winterberry Table

DIY Winterberry Table... a $2 Garage Sale table Make-Over.
You never know what you might find when your out “treasure hunting”.
Making a Winterberry Table from a $2 Garage Sale treasure.

While out Treasure Hunting one day...

I almost missed the small cardboard sign leaning up against the mailbox.

I wasn’t completely sure it was even a sale. 

So I backed the car up and parked.

You just never know what you might find when your out “treasure hunting”.
While chatting with the fun older couple, I found out that they had just recently married and moved into their new home. 

They were downsizing and combining both households.

The couple had a lot of good stuff, most of which I didn’t need.

It was on my second look around when I spotted the table and it’s $2 price tag.  (no need to haggle)
She told me… “I always meant to refinish it.  I put a doily and a basket on it instead.”

I didn’t have the heart to tell her I was planning on painting it.
I gave the table a couple coats of Americana Decor Satin Enamels 8Oz-Deep Ruby. I was seriously impressed with how smooth the paint went on and dried.

I didn’t even need to sand between coats.
I decided to stencil the top of the table using my new "Winterberries" DecoArt stencil. I secured the stencil in place using removable painters tape.

Using a stipple brush…

I applied DecoArt Americana Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint, White Birch inside the open stencil areas.
The Winterberry stencil comes with two 6″ x 18″ stencils which are slightly different.

I used the second stencil to add another berry branch to my table top.

I’m in love with my “new” table.  

For now, the table will be used with my holiday decorating and then after the Holidays it’ll find a permanent home in the guest room.
