A thrift store coffee table gets a french look with chalk paint.

RFBoopsalmostbeforeRFBfirststencilstep This $4.00 thrift store find was so so very brown. I saw it had a lot of curvy swirly details and I like that in a table. I put some grey paint in the deeper part of the crevices and THEN I took a before photo. Just picture it all very brown. I used a white chalk paint.   I am in a stripe everything mood these days. I also used a Martha Stewart stencil.   I enlarged the Edwardian font I liked at the local copy store. To copy to a surface just rub a black crayon on the back, tape in place and trace.

I told the hubby if he didn’t like it I would sell it then I painted right on it in french, “This coffee table belongs to Michelle”. (maniacal laugh) He said, “so I guess it’s a keeper”.

According to rules I must state:   Martha Stewart is not paying me to show you her stencils.   She doesn’t know who I am and won’t even return my calls.  (kidding I have never tried to call her)

           Thanks for stopping by,

                        Michelle
