Paint and Stencil Pretty Table Tops!


Topping off a table with stencils is a great weekend DIY furniture painting project! It's an easy design transformation for stencil newbies and the stenciling pros know it's a quick and effective way to add unexpected interest to table tops of any shape and size. We've rounded up some of the latest projects from some of our Royal Design Studio stenciling friends that showcase inspired ideas for your home!



Kris from Driven by Decor stopped in her tracks when she spied a friend's stunning stenciled table project. Using the Circle of Life African Stencil from the African Stencils Collection, the pattern was stenciled with Sherwin-Williams latex paints and given two coats of polyurethane for protection. It's a beautiful conversation starter for a dinner gathering! If you like the haute African Tribal Patterns that have been taking over design, be sure to take a look at our Raven + Lily Designer Stencils Collection, too!



Dana Corriel frequently uses our stencils to transform painted furniture and sells them in her cute Etsy shop, Three Teaspons of Vintage. When it came to her home, she used the Moorish Fleur de Lis Moroccan Stencil to pattern the tops of her nightshands with a three color scheme. Looks perfect, doesn't it?



Lovely Lace! Creative customer Cheryl Udell stenciled herself a super pretty lacy stenciled table top with our ever-popular Skylar's Lace Floral Stencil and Duck Egg Blue Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan. Bonus? "The stencil hides the big crack on the table top I had to fill," she shares. Pretty AND functional? Perfect combo. 



Brandi from Don't Disturb this Groove had a plan: create a stenciled table top for her teen to use in her bedroom - and by create, we mean start from scratch! Using an old wooden board, she installed both brackets and short legs to create a low coffee table. Using a stencil brush, she stenciled the Small Spanish Lace Furniture Stencil with the Antique Gold Stencil Creme her daughter chose. Stencils are Teen Tested, Mother Approved!



Ana Simpson of Texas' Home Renaissance is a stenciling pro. She not only designs home, but also creates many incredible stenciled finishes, including this stenciled coffee table she painted with the Hollywood Squares Stencil. The geometric pattern fits quite nicely with the lines of the table, doesn't it?


Stenciling a wall, ceiling or floor makes a big impact, but so can small projects like these stenciled table tops. We hope you've enjoyed these stencil ideas for your furniture re-dos!

I have used your stencils for years and you always come up with so many newer styles…it’s amazing! The older stencils are still as good today as back when! :)
