I’ve had this IKEA parsons table for years.
Its been used for many things, but right now it’s being used in the kitchen for a computer table. The white finish was quite worn, so I decided to give it a little update.
I used the same chalk paint recipe and color that I used on these end tables. I removed the legs and painted the entire thing with two coats, except for the top, which I painted white.
Then I got my quatrefoil stencil (see how I made it here) that I’ve been dying to try out and stenciled the surface in grey. To finish it off I used minwax clear.Oh my gosh… please ignore the mangle of cords!!! Not to mention the mess of papers! Now I know what one of my upcoming projects for 2012 should be!!
