Dumpster Table Gets a Stencil and Chalk Paint Makeover
Would you believe that a few short weeks ago, this beauty was sprawled in pieces by a dumpster? All the pieces (including the leg bolts) were neatly in a plastic baggy and secured to the table. This is one of the best pieces of furniture I’ve ever found in the trash (well next to it to be exact.) I didn’t have to do any structural repairs, just reattached the legs. Then I painted it with chalk paint and stenciled the top using Royal Design Studio's Lisboa stencil

I've used this stencil, from Royal Stencils, on 2 unfinished end tables that I bought. Love the stencil. Did a very faded look using General Finishes rather than a chalk paint as I don't like the feel of chalk. And with GF there is very little prep work to do. Paint right over anything.
What grade sandpaper did you use?
