Want to update a plain basic thrifted table then why not use some fun stencils and paints to add some character and design.
I’m so excited about this makeover because it has two of my favorite things in the world which are Aztec and tons of Color.
I fell in love with the Aztec Pattern because of its fun, vibrant, and just colorful goodness.
The table that got this treatment was this Two Drawer Table that my husband and I bought a while ago.
We bought two of these and last week I shared with you guys how I gave one of the tables a Faux Marble Treatment.
This table on the other hand was getting some Aztec loving.
Supplies Needed for this Project
Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint in Lavender
With my stencils and colors in hand I got to work.
First things first I removed the hardware of the drawers and gave it a good coat of Rust-Oleum Gold Spray Paint.
While that was drying I gave the table and the drawers one coat of the color Treasure. It needed two coats to fully cover it but it gave an amazing coverage with no visible brush strokes or anything.
This is how it looked just after one coat.
Then it was time to begin the stenciling with this beautiful Aztec Stencil.
The top part of the table got a lot of color and pattern.
Besides the three colors, I went in and added hot pink and baby blue as well because HEY this was all about color, and the more color the better I say.
It took a while for the stenciling to be complete since I had to do it in sections so I had to wait for one part to get dry so I could move onto the next.
With a gentle hand, I filled in the stencil and tried to keep it as clean as possible.
This is how the top turned out. How cute is this?
Loving the color and the patterns!
Next was the drawer parts. Since the top had so much going on I wanted to keep the pattern on the drawers simple or at least I tried to.
The sides of the table also got some Aztec love but I didn’t want to overdo it so I just stenciled two arrow patterns facing in the opposite direction.
Lastly I just went in and attached the drawer pulls.
And there you have it a super fun little makeover.
The drawer pulls after a fresh paint of Metallic Gold Spray Paint looked amazing.
The Lavender and peach in contrast with the Teal color look beautiful. I also tried adding in some Gold touches but just a little touch!
And there you have it guys. What do you think?
