Hey everyone! Today's guest post comes to you from Camilla at First Lady of the House.
First Lady of the House is an adorable blog with the musings of a mother of 2 sweet girls, crafty round ups, and fun tutorials. You may have seen Camilla (or her adorable projects) floating around blog land already. I just love her yummy yellow Placemat Pillow, her sweet St Patty's Day Shirt & Hair Bobs, and this incredible Formula Can Up-cycle!
I'm Camilla from First Lady of the House.
I ruminated over what to do as a project and finally I decided that I had this little side table sitting around for far to long in it's old ugly original form for way to long (bought at a local thrift store for $10 about 2 or 3 years ago). It was doing nothing for my daughters room with the way to dark color on it.
I tried to sand it down a bit but I think it has veneer on it. The legs sanded pretty good though.
Then I used Krylon White Primer Spray Paint.
Couple coats of that.
This is when it was done with Spray paint, before any stencil or distressing.
Bought the Stencil at Hobby Lobby. I just used a white craft paint and just dabbed, rather than brushed.
I just wanted it in the two opposite corners from each other.
It turned out a little sloppy even though I 'dabbed' the foam brush. But I sanded it down a little.
Ok, So I put this picture in because even though the table is so pretty out on the green lawn with cute flowers on it, the reality is that is will go in my daughters room to be used for who knows what. To have plastic kitchen food line up on it, All the farm animals from the Little People set corralled there, Stacks of books piled on top. So I'm just keepin' it real for you and just threw in the naked baby for kicks!
I sure hope you will all come over and check me out at First Lady of the House.
