Have you seen the new Americana Multi-Surface Satins and Mixed Media Stencils yet? I had a chance to try them out, so I used the opportunity to work some magic on a curbside find. You are going to love not only the colors and stencil designs in this line, but the paint quality is outstanding to boot. Today I am sharing how I created this modern chevron painted coffee table with my box of goodies!
Americana Multi-Surface Satins
Americana Black Chalkboard Paint
Americana Mixed Media Stencils
Medium Grit Sand Paper
Here is the curbside rescued table before any revamping.
I sanded with medium grit paper to give the paint surface something to grab.
I primered the table top rolled on Multi-Surface Satin color Dolphin.
I cut the segment of the stencil I wanted to use off of the main 12×12 inch sheet and taped it into place.
I worked my way down the table, using the sponge pouncer to apply the paint. Coverage is fantastic. I decided I wanted thicker chevron strips, so I taped off around the strips and filled in the space between them.
I continued on like this, using various colors of this fabulous paint. I sand distressed lightly when I was finished.
The legs were cut off when I found the table and looked unfinished, so I glued on these caster cups I found at Lowe’s for $1-ish.
I painted the legs and lower part of table (including caster cups) with Americana chalkboard paint and a soft 1 inch paint brush.
Americana Multi-Surface Satins are available for purchase at Michaels, A.C. Moore, Hobby Lobby, and other fine craft retailers. Go get them now!
