Upcycle Using Only Paint
I collaborated with The Dixie Belle Paint Company for this project. It is a paint project and I am loving the new look. I painted a table that has been around since my grandparents’ days and is still making it today because of the use of paint. I enjoyed this Table Upcycle Using Only Paint.

As you can see the table’s last life was a bright, bright yellow and I thought it was time to tone it down for a more modern farmhouse look.
Now for the clean new look
This was after two coats of Dixie Belle paint in the color drop cloth. It is great coverage and the look is so clean and light.
Once the legs and skirt of the table were dry, I painted the top in hurricane grey. I added two coats of grey as well.
Once the second coat of grey was dry, I added my stencil.
The No. 7 part of the stencil is one I’ve had laying around for a while. Actually, it’s part of a much larger stencil that happened to have the No. 7 as part of the larger stencil. The wreath stencil is from Dixie Belle and will be part of the giveaway package for one lucky winner. I’ll tell you more about the give away later in the post.
The paint dries to a hard and protective finish and once sealed with the clear coat is practically indestructible.
After the finishing touches, I think the little table that could, actually looks pretty good. This little table has been with me for a very, very long time and has been several different colors over the years. It is so old, I’m thinking it is all of the different paints that hold it together. 😊
