A Curbside Kitchen Table Gets A Makeover

Hello and welcome to Our Crafty Mom! It is so hard to believe it is already the end of the month! That means it’s time for our Thrift Store Decor Upcycle Challenge.  If you’ve visited here before you know I am moving my daughter into her first apartment for her Senior year of College this weekend.

This post contains affiliate links at no extra cost to you. I received product from DecoArt used in this post. Please see my full disclosure here

The apartment does not have a single piece of furniture, so I have been scrambling to ensure she at least has the essentials. That is where my thriftiness comes in handy and saves a ton of money! My neighbor was throwing this kitchen table and chairs out and I couldn’t get it in my car fast enough!

My daughter and her roommates are going with a coastal theme and we decided on a pretty gray color for the table and chairs. But I couldn’t stop there as the table looked really plain. I decided to jazz it up with a cool medallion stencil after getting the go ahead from the group. Here is the finished project and then I’ll share what I used on this piece:

I decided to use the paint sprayer on the chairs, table base and legs and it was done in no time. This paint sprayer is seriously one of my favorite DIY tools. I hate painting spindles and the sprayer makes it so easy. Each piece was given two coats of paint letting it dry in between. For the table I used a foam roller, again giving it two coats.

Once it was dry I taped the  stencil in the center of the kitchen table and used white chalk paint on the entire piece. It is so simple using a paint roller.

The table and chairs were finished with two coats of clear wax sealer. I’m going to pretend that the kids won’t be using this table to play quarters or whatever other college drinking games are popular now, lol! I will point out they are 21! Maybe the reminder that Mom refinished this table for them will minimize any drinking games!

Once it is all set up in the apartment, I will post an updated photo. Right now my living room is taken over by apartment furniture! I hope you enjoyed this post and will check out the other projects linked below. I have seen a sneak peek and you will not be disappointed!

That really looks like a quality kitchen set. Your paint job brought it up to today's standards. I love the color. The stencil looks terrific and perks up the table. Your daughter is so fortunate to have a Mom who is so talented.

I'm absolutely loving that stencil. Also, love that the table now has a decoration. No need for anything else on the table. so smart!
