Make a Coffee Bar Table

Creating a coffee bar is easier than you think!

Coffee Bar Table

I ran across a table that was a great size and height for what I had in mind.

I painted the table with two coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®. 

When the paint dried I used one of my beautiful new Old Sign Stencils from Funky Junk Interiors.

This coffee stencil was perfect for this project!

I used a foam pouncer to apply black paint.

You have to be careful using a pouncer to use minimal 
paint and go back over the stencil with light even coats.

When the stencil paint dried I applied a coat of antiquing glaze to the table top.

I painted the glaze on with a brush, then wiped it away
leaving a beautiful antiqued look. 

I applied more glaze around the edges of the table leaving the center of the table lighter.

This technique highlighted the stenciled image.

This stencil comes with a few different options.

and the option to include a location to the bottom of the stencil...

Seattle WA or Maui HI 

The great part about these stencils is that you can use parts of the stencil or the whole thing to easily customize your project.

I placed my coffee bar table in front of an old door allowing for a hanging shelf for coffee accessories.
