Houndstooth Stenciled Drop Leaf Table

Painted Drop Leaf Table With a Houndstooth StencilI love that you can take just about anything and totally change it’s look with a stencil!  You can stencil just about anything…furniture, walls, picture frames, and even pillows!  I used a stencil to create this darling Houndstooth Stenciled Drop Leaf Table, and now I want to stencil everything in our home!  I probably won’t, but ya never know with me…


Here is the table before it got it’s little stencil makeover.  While this table is pretty in its original state, I think the stencil just takes my little table up a notch.  You can see how I painted it originally, HERE.

I used one of DecoArt’s new Americana Mixed Media Stencils and their new Americana Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint to achieve this look.

Isn’t this clock stencil fun???  I used the stencil and burlap from Michaels to make band that would slide over one of my existing pillows.Stenciled Burlap Chevron Pillow from Mom 4 Real2

I simply dabbed on a thin coat of black paint, let it dry, then hot glued the ends of the band together and slipped it overmy pillow!

    This is darling! I stenciled a sign a few months ago, and I had forgotten how easy it was to get a completely different look.


  1. […] 5. How would you describe your style?   I would say comfortable colorful cottage style would be perfect. We LIVE in our home, so it has to be comfortable. I absolutely love color, especially aqua! I adore anything that is worn, and am drawn to whites and blues. I love small spaces, and creaky screen doors.     Stenciled Drop Leaf Table […]
