Simple Stencilled Side table MAKEOVER

Welcome back my Beauties! 
Sorry I have been so absent lately.
A year ago my Mom got sick and we lost her a few months later.
I basically have been kind of floating through the last few months trying to re navigate my life without her.
I feel like I am living in an alternate world sometimes.
Our lives have gone back to somewhat normal routine, yet something is always missing. 
What makes it hard is that I also have so many makeovers that I was working on when she got sick, so to sit down and start going through these projects is a little difficult.
It brings me back to when we were dealing with so much yet still trying to get my work done to sell at my booth.
I have to say seeing these projects is getting a little easier and I am finally ready to start showing what I was working on back then. 
Mostly because my momma LOVED a good project.
The worse it was in the beginning the better.
This is one of those projects.

My father in law had picked this old sad table up out of someones trash. He wasn't sure I could do anything with it, but once he saw my face when he gave it to me, he knew it was a mistake to doubt me. :)
The veneer was in awful shape but I knew from experience it just needed a little elbow grease and that stuff would be gone in moments.
I started by prying off the loose veneer and then using the soaking method to loosen what was left.

Once I got it all scraped off I could move on to making her pretty.

While the top was drying I painted the whole base of the table with
paint.

Then for the fun part. I grabbed my 
PAISLEY STENCIL and using the same mint paint from the base I stencilled the top of the table.
I was in love with the dark and light contrast.
I spray sealed the whole piece when it was dry.

I love how the stencil on top of the dark wood brought the whole piece together.

I still can't believe this was the same table that someone had thrown in the trash.

But as usual, those are always my favorite makeovers!

I still can't believe the difference.
I also find it funny that I have never seen another table like this before.
I have seen a lot of furniture in my day, but none like this.
If you have any idea what it was called I would love to know!
In the next few weeks I will be show a few more makeovers from last summer.
It takes me a little longer to go through the pictures to edit, but hopefully I am still making my momma proud.
Until next time,
Have a BEAUTIFUL day.
