Black and Hot Pink Damask Coffee Table

Damask Stencil Coffee Table

~ Remember when? ~
and I bought two tables that looked like this
and turned them into this

Chandelier Stencil Coffee Table

and this ?

~ Here’s how I did it ~
I LOVE Nanny but I don’t like sanding and I don’t like using primer either. I like to see results quickly! Nevertheless, the top of Nanny’s table had a sheen so I lightly sanded it before I painted. I didn’t sand any other part of the table. Painted furniture is more likely to chip and scratch if it is not sanded and/or primed so I frequently go with the “roughed up” look. (some may call it Shabby Chic or distressed but my mom once said, “If you want to buy something that has a lot of scratches on it, bang on it with your hammer and sand it a little. That is called the roughed up look.” 

I’ve been a fan of the “roughed up” look for several years now.
I  used a stencil for the chandelier and damask images on the tops. Finally, after the paint dried I lightly sanded the table(s) to reveal the dark wood underneath. The roughed up approach is best because Nanny is in college and this table will see a lot of action be used a lot. 
The readers of mommy is coocoo were almost evenly divide on which table they liked best. Ultimately, the chandelier table won out by one vote, which was perfect because Nanny (who had the ultimate vote) chose the Chandelier table.

    Love both of the tables. I’m kind of beginning to warm up to scuffed up look as well. Especially since it’s going to end up that way in this house anyway, LOL!
