Stenciled and Dipped Leg Table

Hey there!! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Before I get into the table I worked on over the weekend, I'd like to say a quick thanks to everyone who linked up to our Fall Decor party! That was a first for me, co-hosting a party, and it was tons of fun! I'm still working through all of the links, so if you haven't seen a comment from me, I promise you will! 

This weekend I worked on redoing a table I brought home from my booth because it's been sitting awhile. Here's the best before picture I could find. This was after it got sanded, but you can tell by the front leg, I originally painted it in a very distressed coat of milk paint. I think, perhaps, it was just a bit too distressed for most people's liking - including my own. 


Because of it's glossy finish, I painted on two coats of primer and 3 coats of homemade chalk paint in Parchment White just to be safe.


Then using a very pale blue, I stenciled the top and dipped the legs. I really love the subtleness of the blue! The perfect pop of light color!















And now back to my booth it goes! :)
