New Americana Multi-Surface Satins & Stencils

Paint a Chevron Coffee Table with @DecoArt_Inc @savedbyloves


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!

Table Makeover

Here is the curbside rescued table before any revamping.

Sanding a Table

I sanded with medium grit paper to give the paint surface something to grab.

Applying paint with a roller

I primered the table top rolled on Multi-Surface Satin color Dolphin.

How to Refinish a Table

I cut the segment of the stencil I wanted to use off of the main 12×12 inch sheet and taped it into place.

How to Paint Chevron on a Table

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.

Sand Distress a Table

I continued on like this, using various colors of this fabulous paint.  I sand distressed lightly when I was finished.

Glue on Casters

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.

Painted Chevron Pattern


I painted the legs and lower part of table (including caster cups) with Americana chalkboard paint and a soft 1 inch paint brush.
