Gold and White Stenciled Table {Themed Makeover}

A stunning stenciled table makeover in metallic gold and white for Themed Furniture Makeover Day.

Yes this is a gold and white stenciled table makeover, but that just sounds so boring, doesn’t it?  This is definitely not a boring table.  Once in a while, all the stars align and a project comes together exactly like I imagined- this is one of those times.  <3  I hope you love it too!

Today is Themed Furniture Makeover Day, and this month we were challenged to create a two-tone project.  (See all the previous TFMD posts and themes HERE.)  If you scroll all the way down you can see all of my friends’ makeovers too.

My mom sent me a fuzzy cell phone pic of this table at the thrift store (she’s always looking out for me!) and I fell in love with the shape – it reminds me of the Coliseum.  I paid more than I normally would but it was worth it!

First, because of the reddish wood I primed the whole thing.  Red tends to bleed through light colored paint, and I didn’t want to take any chances.  (Plus Modern Masters recommends this brand of primer for their metallic paints.)

I also used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® in Old White, Modern Masters metallic paint in Olympic Gold, and finally MasterClear polyurethane to protect it all.

After painting the two shelves in Old White, I stenciled the Lisboa Tile Stencil from Royal Design Studio – and I really believe the combination of Chalk Paint®, metallic gold paint, and the Lisboa stencil made some magic!   😉

The rim and eight legs all got about 3 coats of Olympic Gold, and all of it was protected with the MasterClear poly.

Here’s how the top turned out:

It looks so gorgeous when the light shines on it and makes it shimmer!

    STUNNING! Not normally attracted to gold but this is gorgeous! Loved the original table but you stepped it up several notches! I have a similar table, not as nice, and have been trying to get inspired on what to do to make it special. I think I just found my inspiration! Thank you!

    Whenever I see the magic bloggers do it always amazes me what a coat of paint (or 2 or 3) do for a piece of furniture to give it a new life. You sure made that table (love the style) shine in more ways than one. It’s gorgeous. I’m not usually a lover of gold but the gold really made this table wonderful. The stencil helped to give it awesome detail on top. Love legs on your table, you’ did great job. Happy weekend

    Love love love what you did with this table Jen – that stencil is gorgeous! I agree re: Bullseye 123 Primer, I won’t use anything else. Love that your Mom scouts out thrifty furniture for you, my husband does the same for me and it’s awesome! Look forward to this series each month – you are a talented group of gals!

    Love it!!!! It’s inspiring me to update my furniture. Did you use the metallic top coat over the chalk white paint also?

    • Jen
      September 28, 2014 at 10:13 pm (4 years ago)

      Liz, thank you! 🙂 Yes, I used MasterClear over all of it. I didn’t want to wax everything and lose some of the metallic shine – and I thought about waxing over the white before I stenciled, and then doing the MasterClear on top at the end. Finally I just crossed my fingers – and it really turned out great! I have heard of people using other protectants besides wax over Chalk Paint® and they seem to like it. If it weren’t for the metallic paint, I would’ve just used wax though – it has such a durable finish once it cures.

    Jen….I recently discovered your website via Pinterest. What an inspiration you are and thanks for all the tips that you offer on your site. I just recently decided to “flip furniture” and I can’t wait to get started now.

    My husband and I really like the gold paint. Did you only use the one 6oz bottle?

    Found this via Pinterest. It has inspired me to resume crafting, which has taken a back seat to quilting the last year or so. 🙂

      Linda – Yes, just the small bottle. Even after the couple coats that I painted on this table, I didn’t even use the entire bottle. 🙂
