Other Supplies

Primer, Brushes (large for table and small for lettering), Sandpaper, Polyurethane, Small paint roller with foam roller, Carbon paper or tracing paper, pencil

Instructions

  1. Sand table top to remove any bumps, old finish, etc. 

  2. When smooth, paint table with Lime Green  – about  two coats.

  3.  Paint table legs with Pure Black. 

  4. When dry, distress legs and table top edges with 80 grit sandpaper. 

  5. I found the words Bon Appetite on the internet and printed a version I liked on my computer.  Place carbon paper under the printout and trace onto table top.  Using small brush and the FolkArt Black paint the lettering.  (another option would be to use the FolkArt blank stencils with a Cricut machine and print your own custom stencil!  Very cool!) 

  6. When dry, mix 4 parts water with one part black paint and using soft cloth, glaze the top of the table – focusing on the distressed edges.  Work quickly, and try to spread the  glaze in one direction.

  7. When the glaze is dry, use a water based polyurethane to seal table top.  Apply 3-4 coats with a small roller handle and foam roller, rolling  in one direction. Allow to dry between coats.
