Dining Room Table

I was "eyeing" this table at the Salvation Army thrift store for over a week and finally bought it - for only $10.00!
The legs are gorgeous (Duncan Phyfe style)
The top was a mess:I was happy to see that it was of good quality - Thomasville!I primed it:

I gave the table a few coats of spray paint (you might remember that I am not too fond of Heirloom white, but it is growing on me!):
Hobby Lobby sells this large wall stencil:
I sponged the diamonds and I wasn't too crazy about this idea:

So I painted it again:
And I spray painted the diamonds this time:
And then I glazed it (thanks to Crowned Casa for the glazing guidance!)
I imagine I only have $50.00 in the whole project!
I am sharing this project with:

  9. Fantastic! That table will last! I have one that was my husband's mother's ... and we broke one of he legs while moving ... power screwed it back together ... and that was 30 years ago! I just moved it from the dining room about a year ago ... but only because I wanted a different look! You did a fantastic job on this table ... can't wait to see how you use it!

  11. Great makeover! I've got a kid's craft table I'm wanting to do diamonds on...I'll have to try the stencil...looks so much faster then trying to tape it all off.

  12. Patti, you did a fantastic job on that table. I would have never thought about putting the diamonds on top, but I love it. Great bargin at 10.00. Why don't I find deals like that.

  13. This is a fun, different twist on a great, classic style of table...I've refinished many of these tables in my time! I'm really glad you showed it to us on Modern Craftswoman Monday! Thanks, Rory

  17. Very nice job. I think the subtle paint change vs. a bold like black and white was a smart choice! You could use this anywhere! Love it!

  19. Love it, Patti, and the harlequin pattern came out great sprayed! I bought that same stencil from Hobby Lobby online {we don't have the actual store here}. I haven't used mine yet, but I love seeing an idea for it!

  20. patti- that looks fabulous! i have used that stencil before as well and i just used a regular old stencil brush. then to give it a moew worn effect i dry brushed over it with the base coat color and it worked well. i love the colors you chose on this table- great job!

  21. Good value for $10 bucks! Looks like it is solid wood on top too. Is that right? Just curious as to why you didn't refinish the top.

  22. The table looks great, you are braver than I am, using a large stencil like that! I'm a big chicken and would have stopped at the heirloom white!

  23. Thats a really pretty, really classy design. Love the colors that you used, and what a bargain you got!

  24. Patti, it is simply beautiful! May have to get a stencil like that for myself. Thanks so much for sharing. Thanks also for stopping by my blog and for the sweet comment on my table redo.
