Update Your Furniture: Stencil-Painted Tables

Update Your Furniture: Stencil-Painted Tables

Last year, Remodelista editor Alexa found a wooden table on the street in the worst shade of cheap wood stain. After a few coats of paint, she transformed the table, which is now one of her favorite pieces in her apartment. Here are four ideas for updating an old table.

Above: Amsterdam-based Uxus Design used a variety of stencils on the picnic tables of the Nike canteen from DIY: Stenciled Picnic Tables.

Interesting and I love free hand painting colourful flowers, ivy and other natural folksy themes onto furniture, especially ivy and ferns.
