Coffee Table Makeover

Yesterday, I gave you a sneak peek at my latest project.  I was working on a coffee table makeover.  Well, I finished it!  Woohoo!  Here's the $8 table before -

The top was a little rough so I applied some wood putty -

Then I sanded the whole thing down.  After a coat of Kilz Oil Based Primer, I applied three coats of Valspar Du Jour (I had it left over from another project that I'm working on).  But I wanted to give this table a little bit of interest, so I grabbed some supplies from Michael's -

A pack of Martha Stewart stencils, stencil adhesive and craft brushes.  That whole trip cost me $20 but I can reuse all of it so it was worth the investment.  Then I applied two coats of Olympic Secret Passage.  Here's the after -

I think it is sooo much better now.  I may have to stencil more often!
