We have met many a kitchen table that could have been saved from donation heaven if only they would have been DIY'd like the image above. We spotted this whimsical idea on KC and Sara's blog--how to after the jump! The couple received this hand-me-down table and while they liked the shape, the generic wood surface wasn't doing anything for them. By using a heat gun to strip off the wax coating, they decided to paint instead of re-stain (and we're sure glad they did).Sara mentions that the reverse stenciling was time-consuming (but we think well worth the trouble). And the lime green pairs well with the faux place setting.
