Stain Painted Accent Table

#minwaxfan 




Old 80's style table










1. Sanding and cleaning the table.

  




2. Painting the base.

Taped off the top and spray painted the legs and base. 






 3. Pencil drawing of the design. 
Drawn directly on the wood. 




 4. Choosing the stain colors and top coat.
Minwax Polyurethane for top coat, Special Walnut, Golden Oak and Gunstock stains for colors. 



5. Staining the design. 




Golden oak color for the center of the flower. 

Gunstock (the reddish tint), Special Walnut and Onyx (the solid ring)





6. Staining the remainder of the table top. 
Golden Oak for the entire table top.

7. I decided to add another infinity ring to the design, using Onyx and Gunstock. 




8. Then topcoat with polyurethane. 


















Now that certainly brightened up an old dull table!

  2. I just love this table, Robin! It's funny because I've been working on a spray paint and stain combo too, but I'm not sure how I want the top to look. Your design is so pretty! :)

  7. I like infinity rings and thought it would be nice to do one in stain on a furniture piece.
    Thank you.

  33. Only one time. During step 6.


    I used artists' brushes to "paint" the stain on the pencil drawing. Then, when dried, I rubbed on Golden Oak on the entire surface. After seeing more space for another infinity ring, I painted it on with the two darker stains, Gunstock and Onyx. When the dried, I sealed it with polyurethane. So the only stain rubbing was the entire surface with the Golden Oak.

  34. I have some ideas for "stain painting" and wanted to try it with this simple design first. Since the results work, I can now move on to the other projects. I'm glad you like it. Thank you so much for the feature, Julia!

  40. Superb, refab, reminds me so much of an Italian inlay piece, very nice job!

  41. The design was the real work part. Once drawn on, it was easy going. Thank you for liking it and having me! You're a great hostess :)

  42. It's a dated piece and I agree with you, the design suits it. A little bit of country charm to it. It reminds me of the days when "folk art painting" was on PBS... when I was... eh-hem... a lot younger :)
