Golden Sun & Clouds Round Table

Remember this Vintage Stamps Side Table I did a while ago?

Well he's got a twin sister!!

As her twin brother, she started out like this.

Sometimes I know what to do right away, other times I just go with what inspires me during the project. This time was the latter.
I didn't really have a vision other than I wanted it to be
pale blue and white....

So I started painting using my usual homemade chalk paint.

Then I thought I wanted to have a golden rim:)

I did a dry-brushing with white over the gold but I thought I like more gold
so I repainted gold again.

Then I felt like stenciling.

A small but helpful advice:
* Be sure to tape your stencil down when you do a bigger surface*
Because the stencil won't stay in place and more likely to move if you are not careful enough....

Then it looked so pretty ( or so I felt )
I finished it with polyurethane and wax.
Oh I hand painted the handle white.

And here she is!

To me, it looks like a golden sun with blue sky and floating clouds :)
It's a happy looking table.

Here're the photos of the twins ;) 

I'm happy that these tables are done!
Next project is going to be a square side table.

Take care, everyone:)

    1. Cynthia, stencils can add lots of charactor to a piece and it's pretty easy to do, you are so good with what you do, I'm sure you'll have no trouble at all doing it!! :)
