TIP: For a freshly painted table wait 24 hours before stenciling.
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 Moroccan stencil from Cutting Edge Stencil. It’s also going to be used in my Spring Tablescape Blog hop. Moroccan style have inspired me to do something unique for my tea party I have planned.

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 a paint to 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 time on a paper towel so most of paint is on paper tower.
Step 4. Roll the foam brush over the stencil lightly to medium pressure. TIPS: I advice 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.
