The first thing we had to do was strip the surface of the table. It was actually pretty fun, and we got to wear some sweet gear.
Once we finished that, we had to sand and stain the wood. Even after just the sanding, the table looked so much nicer than it was before.
Then we printed out a stencil design, put it on top of rows of painters tape, cut it out with an x-acto knife, taped it to the surface and painted away!
As a finishing touch, we added a new ceiling lamp and called it good. After all of our hard work, we sat down at our rustic chic, upcycled dining table, and ate some toy story shaped mac and cheese, and applesauce.
