How to Stencil an Old Coffee Table
- wooden coffee table
- stencil kit (we used the Indian Inlay Furniture Stencil Kit by Kim Myles, $35, cuttingedgestencils.com)
- spray mount
- foam roller or pouncer
- paint (for base and stencil)
Paint the table with latex paint and let dry.
Roughly plan your design with stencil strips. We used a flower and leaf pattern in the center and outlined it with a diamond border. We added more flowers and leaves around that design, then a diamond pattern on the table’s edges, apron and legs.
Starting at the table’s center, adhere the first stencil to the table with repositionable spray mount. Use a small foam roller or pouncer to fill it in with crafts paint. Remove the stencil, then repeat, working your way out and down the apron and legs.
