I generally work on projects that I can “move” to the garage in case they don’t turn out as expected….but THIS time I thought BIG and knew I couldn’t mess up!
My dining room table was purchased about 10 years ago. It’s the ‘high table stool’ style, and I don’t necessarily love it anymore, but it works. I decided it’d be fun to repurpose it from a sore spot with tons of scratches to a discussion piece!
Tools I used:
- Paint: Black
- Stickers: vinyl
- Exacto knife
Step 2: Came up with various phrases for the table (my specifics below)
- 10.26.06 (My son’s birthday)
- Peanut Butter
- “Hold you me” (fav son’s line at age 2)
- Ball State
- Snuggle time
- Engagement date
- wedding date
- Family rules (Trust, respect, no elbows on the table, etc.)
Step 3: Purchased vinyl stickers in a variety of sizes
Note: Regular stickers do NOT work as well! Vinyl stickers work and peel off perfectly….other regular letter stickers make you want to go postal!
Step 4: Apply the stickers
Step 5: Press the stickers down with fingers to ensure a secure stick
Step 6: Paint on top of stickers (2 coats)
Step 7: Once dry, peel stickers (this takes time! Invite some friends to help! Thanks Heather and Caroline for the assistance!)
Step 8: Once peeled, polyurethane the top! I applied 3 coats to ensure a decent job.
Such a fun conversation piece….plue, t
