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.

Upcycled Wine Bottle Lighted Candy Corns

#Upcycled Wine Bottle Candy Corn luminaries for #Halloween #repurpose #recycledCrafts

This project is the latest in upcycled wine bottles here at SBLC.  It is super simple to create, and pretty dang Halloweeny.  All you need is some glass paint, LED light strings and a few basic supplies to create your own illuminated, eco-friendly Halloween decor.

You can see how I made the shelf for the bottles in my DecoArt address lantern DIY.  I added some black duct tape that I cut with a decorative edge sizzix die by Tim Holtz.

Here is how I made the bottles:
