Hi friends!  Today I’m sharing an Indian Inlay stenciled table makeover that almost kicked my butt, even though I’ve done quite a few stenciling projects before.

This table was a yard sale castaway (they practically gave it to me) with high-gloss spray paint and plenty of chips and bumps.

But I really liked the shape of it, and I knew it would be perfect for the Indian Inlay furniture stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils – which I’ve wanted to try for ages!

I hand sanded the table to get rid of the gloss and the bumps and painted it all in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Graphite.  For the stencil, I used Country Grey (I mixed in a bunch of pearl metallic paint but sadly you can’t even tell).

Then I started stenciling…

and stenciling…   (the kit comes with 5 different stencils- it helps to lay out the order you want first)

and stenciling…  until my arms almost fell off.  (Haha)  Then I finished up with clear wax.  In hindsight I really should’ve split the job into 2 or 3 days, but I was in a groove and wanted to get most of it all finished at once.

It was SO worth it.   <3

The hardest part is measuring and making sure everything is lined up just right.

I did have a couple mistakes that I had to go back and fix!

I really love that with this stencil anyone can make Indian Inlay style furniture for a fraction of the cost of the super expensive furniture made with real bones.

Also, you can create a different look on every piece you paint just by rearranging the stencils.

Here’s a peek at the drawers…

    I like your version ! I found a table, one drawer, and also stenciled the Indian stencil. I, too, had the dickens of a time with the measuring, but finally got it right. Black, with pearl white stencils. I’ll try another background colour next time. The designer, Kim Myles, won an HGTV design contest, but haven’t seen her since. Love your emails Eileen S

    It is awesome. I have a table like that but don’t think I have the skill to stencil it.

    I love the results of your hard work. I don’t have the patience that would take! BTW, #Eileen Swingle, Kim Myles had her own show for a while on one of the “decorating” channels, then I lost track of her too.

    You did a great job, Jen. I can appreciate the amount of stenciling you had to do — the the payoff is terrific. I saw your link at Miss Mustard Seed’s party.

      Thank you Christy! It was a lot of work but it’s one of my favorite stencils now. 🙂
