Quatrefoil Table!



I have been wanting to do the quatrefoil pattern on something FOREVER.  I loved my oilcloth table, but after several months of use the oil cloth snagged and faded.  I thought a quatrefoil table top would be fun.

I started by downloading a stencil from here.  I then traced the stencil onto the table.  I painted with Craft Smart turquoise from Michaels.  After the paint dried I sprayed with clear Rustoleum.  It was easier than I thought it would be.  I want to do walls next!  I am glad I practiced on my table first. :)

Aren't you glad you didn't take that table out to the trash? It's gone through two amazing transformations and just keeps getting better! ;)
