French Themed Table Makeover

French Themed Table Makeover - A Goodwill table gets a French look.

It’s time once again for Themed Furniture Makeover Day.  Once a month my blogging friends and I challenge each other to makeover a piece of furniture with a theme.  This month the theme is French.  You’ll find links to my friends’ projects at the end of this post.

Back in July I found a table at Goodwill and knew then that it would be my candidate for this makeover.  It was solid, I liked it’s shape, and it needed no repair other than to fill in a few gouges in the wood with wood filler.

I knew that I needed to complete this makeover before school started because things get crazy for me once I go back to work.  On a blissful summer morning after a run while enjoying a third cup of coffee, I stumbled upon the perfect stencil to use for my French makeover.  This stencil comes with a Paris overlay but I decided not to use it.

While I waited for the stencil to arrive in the mail, I sanded the table and gave it a few coats of Maison Blanch paint in Mushroom.  After the paint was dry, I centered the stencil on the table, taped it into place with Frog Tape, and then stenciled on (affiliate link)Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint in Relic using a stencil brush.

I very lightly distressed the legs and table edge with sandpaper and then sealed the piece with (affiliate link)Americana Decor Light Satin Varnish.

As much as I like this piece, I most likely won’t be keeping it.  If you are local and are interested in this piece, let me know!
