French Coffee Table Makeover

This little table was found!! hubby found it & no one claimed it so I put my touch on it :)

It was black...  I think it was spray painted, but it could have been lacquered a lonnnnggggg time ago.

I wiped it down with deglosser before I started to paint it.  Sorry I don't have a before picture.  This was one of the many pictures that was on my phone that I didn't get off of it before it made it's jump into the snow to it's death :(

I painted it in a color from DecoArt Chalky Paint called Timeless.  I really love this color because it truly is Timeless.  I've used it on so many different pieces & it just goes with everything & I feel it is one of those colors that I will never grow tired of.

Aren't the legs beautiful?

I think so!!

Once the paint had dried completely, I used a stencil I cut out using my Silhouette and applied it to the top. I used Masion Blanche Wrought Iron! 

I then wax it using the Lime Wax from Briwax...

I truly wish I had a before picture...  It came out so beautiful!  And, she is now sitting in my booth at Newburgh Vintage Emporium!!


  1. Great table, Lynn! I love the shape of it. The image is great. Isn't that Wrought Iron a great black to use on furniture?

  2. turned out great, love those curvy legs!!
