One of my favorite craft projects was an old side table I painted and and stenciled.
Here’s the before pic:
I removed the front handle and painted the table with a grey colored spray paint. Then I painted the handle with black spray paint. After it was dry I reattached the handle.
I then used a wooden wall hanging to trace the word “Laugh” on the table top–like this one:
I filled it in with white acrylic paint.
And here’s the finished table.
