Coffee & Side Tables

From a Lack table to a sweet little stenciled one

Materials: Lack side table cedar wood strips, stencil, wood stain, paint

Description: I picked up this lack table with an idea to re-purpose it but I had no idea how. Then I remembered this technique of gluing wood strips to make a new top. I got cedar wood strips, cut them to size. I glued them to the top, I painted the table white. I stenciled the raw wood and stained over that. Voila! Sweet little table.

    This is the most awesome makeover!!! How did you get the pattern of the wood to shine through where you had painted with white?
