Darling Damask Stenciled Dining Set

Would you ever stencil your table top? When my customer dropped off her kitchen table and chairs they were, for lack of a better word, basic.  We’ve all seen the light wood dining sets, they’re actually pretty common and nothing spectacular.  They do the job necessary as a place to sit, eat, chat, etc, but she wanted something MORE. A damask stenciled dining set was in order! stenciled-table

I admit that I love to decoupage.

Sophisticated Solid Wood Side Table

Sophisticated Solid Wood Side Table

After sanding, cleaning and prepping I decided on a custom mixed dark gray color with a hint of blue gray.  Gray is a big hit lately, neutral but not white!

But if you know me, or follow my work you know that I always like to add something to make a piece stand out!  So I went with this gorgeous textured damask print for around the sides and back.

The decorative medallions were changed from gold to dark metallic silver.

I love how these chic vintage tables turned out!!  These end tables have so much character and details on their own that sometimes keeping things simple with classic white is the key.  Trust me, though, they were nowhere nearly this pretty when they arrived.
