DIY Farmhouse Table Makeover - DIY Furniture Tutorials

This farmhouse table makeover transformed our old kitchen table into a gorgeous focal point for our dining room. For little money you can make any old furniture in your home look new and pretty again. Check out the tutorial! 

 I bought this table almost two years ago from a young couple for $25.00.  The top of the table has never been in great shape but I didn’t mind since it was meant to be abused by countless amounts of spills, craft paint, hot glue and many other things. 

 
Now it’s time to let the table retire from her previous duties and be a little pampered and even honor her for been the foundation of so many great dinners and moments. The first thing I did was sand the table PERFECTLY down. It looked like a completely different table already!
 
After this part was done it was time to apply the vinyl stencil that I had previously designed and cut.
You will need a large vinyl machine to do something like this, or order a stencil.

Then I was ready to stain the design. I used an antiquing dark glaze by Valspar. My advice if you are thinking to do something like this is to use small amounts of paint at a time. Paint or a thick glaze is better that regular stain {too “liquidly”}  for this part of the process. I know you know BUT DO NOT BRUSH THE PAINT side to side or up and down. When you are working with STENCILS ALWAYS tap your paint with a flat brush.

Then it was time to let it dry… Perfect for me and Mimi to take a HOT CHOCOLATE break while Papi and the other little savages
were playing basketball at the Church.
Then we were ready to stain the table. I always like to test my stains in a piece of similar wood before I apply it on the final surface… Check out my fancy gear 😉
