Meet our new coffee table:



We needed some spray paint for the stencil my friend Anna made (originally intended for less crafty, more deviant activities), but while we were at miller we saw GOLD SPRAYPAINT! and it was so cool we decided to paint my coffee table with it. The table was just boring wood with green legs and i had been meaning to do something with it for awhile. Here's a close up of the stencil on the middle of the table, try to ignore the glare from the flash:



we decided to paint the legs black so there wasn't too much gold. so yeah, it was a pretty easy spur of the moment project. i think tomorrow we're going to put a clear coat on it so we can actually use it as a table again, i hope everyone likes it!

I LOVE YOU AND YOUR TABLE!

So inspired by that picture, I think I will stencil a shirt with that image.

If you haven't clear coated it yet, I think it would be really cool to stencil that all over the table. You could flip the stencil over and repeat it. Very cool table!

I've thought about putting a couple more pictures on it, but ultimately it's more touching up than we want to do. we had to put like four coats of gold on there. also i like how simplistic it is with just one. thanks for the suggestion though!

ooooh, I love that!  I knew just what it was when I opened it, but I'm happy to see it was paint and gold rather than decoupage.  (Not that I don't love decoupage, I do, but this was more a suprise.)  I usually am not a gold person, but this works beautifully.  Now you need to make a record bowl or two from Chicago area bands, for eating munchies whilst watching Blues Brothers, or playing SNL trivia pursuit.
