Wednesday's Projects Past - Vintage Numbered Nesting Tables

I restyled these original vintage nesting tables about 3 years ago. 

They were leaking tannin so I had to coat them first with Stop Stain, then 3 coats of white chalk paint.

Then I printed off the number stencils on my computer and cut them out.

I decreased the size of the numbers to match the decreasing sizes of the tables.

Then I mixed up some grey acrylic paint and using a sponge brush, stencilled on the numbers.

Then a good sand and distress.  Followed by a coat of clear furniture wax.  

And you will know from my house tours that I still have them and still love them!
