A New Crafting Table

When we lived in our townhouse, we had a little kitchen table from Ikea.  As out family has grown, that table just gotten way too small for us.  So, we went and bought a new table and planned to sell the old table. Then, we started finishing the basement and decided to use the table as a craft able instead.

Of course, I couldn’t just throw an old kitchen table down in my new craft room. I did a little searching on the old standby: Pinterest and found some great ideas.

So, out came the paint!

I started with our old kitchen table and cleaned off all the kid mess on it.

I use the chalk paint in Florence on the top.

Then, I painted the legs white.

Using my Cutting Edge stencil, I stenciled a design down the middle of the table.

I did three rows down the middle.

Then, I used the edge stencil to finish both the top and bottom.

All ready for crafting!
