How To Stencil A Large Medallion On Your Table

I love that Spring is here almost and I get to start doing lots of projects outside. I thought that this old beat-up table would be a great project for my medallion stencil from Cutting Edge Stencil.  I choose a Moroccan style stencil which inspired me to do something unique for my tea party I have planned with a few friends.

Some decorative painting requires lots of time and effort. One of the reasons why I love stenciling is that the pattern is done for you. All you have to do is paint over it. The secret to stenciling is taping and painting over the pattern. You could make your own stencil but why bother when you have lots of companies that offer great stencils.

Before choosing a large medallion. I recommend measuring the table with the dimensions of the medallion stencil. to make sure it fits the table. If it fits on your table, take the stencil and practice on poster board. If you have an old table that needs some love this is the perfect project to bring life to it.



  1. Cutting Edge Stencil Medallion
  2. Dense Foam  Roller
  3. Acrylic Paint
  4. Masking Tape
  5. Plastic Tray For Paint.
  6.  Stencil  Brush
  7. Paper Towel

(For finishing table use a sander and  wood stain)

How To Stencil

STEP 1: I sanded the old table and painted it with a wood stain called (Briarsmoke by Rustoleum) it has a grayish color to it.  It needed two coats to get a rich look. I waited about 20 minutes in between coats.

Step 2: I taped the stencil on the table with blue masking.

Step 3: Add a little paint to a plastic tray. Roll the foam brush a few times enough to go back and forth with the foam brush. Dab the foam brush a few times on a paper towel so most of the paint is on the paper towel.

Step 4. Roll the foam brush over the stencil lightly to medium pressure. TIPS: I advise is to carefully go over a few times if you feel its to light, but make sure the paper towel has absorbed the paint each time. Sometimes you will need to tab the edges with a little stencil brush.

        Maria this is so cute! I love upcycling furniture no matter the method I use! I revamped an oak dresser with an ombre paint job and raised stenciling using drywall spackle then decoupage the outer sides of the drawers with local captain maps of the Columbia River that runs by our house. I’m currently sanding an old rocking chair for a new finish and I just finished a color face-lift via dry brushing on an expanding farmhouse coffee table that we found on a pickin trip! It is that coffee table that I’m going to stencil & I’m thinking I want to do something with mandalas or magnolias…

        1. What a wonderful image I had of you home by the river, sounds beautiful place to do projects. Love working outside. Take care.
