DIY Projects : Nesting Tables Makeover + Tutorial

My furniture flips keep on coming. I have flipped & sold a coffee table, 2 sets of end tables within the past few weeks. Now I am working on a set of nesting tables. I also have a kitchen table makeover in the works as we speak.

Supplies I used for this project: 

First, I decided on the color of all 3 tables.

I decided to make the largest and smallest table the same color my Behr paint in “Brookview.” The middle table would become the “California Coral” color I used on my last end table project.

After painting couple of layers of on each nesting table, I moved on to taping off the bottom portion of the legs. I love that gold dipped effect on furniture legs.

I used my Modern Masters “Olympic Gold” paint to make these table legs pop!

Last year, I was sent 2 stencils from Cutting Edge Stencils for their Paint-A-Pillow brand of stencils. I loved the stencils and kept them after the project in case I could make use of them again.

The day finally came to break them out. I thought they would make perfect additions to the tops of these nesting tables. I used a blunt stenciling brush to apply the Royal Stencil Creme I used in “Patina Green.”

The process of stenciling these tables didn’t take very long… thank goodness! The past couple ones have taken much longer than I thought they would.

Once I finished the feathers I moved on to my geometric stencil on the middle table.

I decided to use the Modern Masters “Olympic Gold” paint to make this table shine.

I even went back over the centers of the Peacock feathers to add gold. I am very very happy with how these tables came out!
