NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Paint the entire surface of the table in Adirondack. (It takes a few coats, so be patient.) Let dry completely before applying the next coat.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Paint the top of the table with Adirondack and, while it is still wet, work in Frosted Glass in a circular motion, blending them together.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Use a ruler to find the center of the tabletop and mark lightly in pencil. Position the Garden Bloom stencil on the top of the table. Tape it into place, or hold it with your hand. Apply Picket Fence onto the cosmetic sponge; dab off the excess paint; and lightly pounce onto the stencil.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Remove the stencil and let the paint dry. Reposition the stencil and continue on making the pattern, letting dry each time. (You can embellish the design however you like.)
    Step 3 Example


When stenciling, tape or hold the stencil to the surface of the table. Dip the sponge in paint and dab off the excess on a paper towel before applying the paint to the stencil. Remove the stencil carefully and wait for the paint to dry before repositioning the stencil.
