Project Steps

Intro

Happy February friends! Both my husband and I's families live in different states.  So, we get visitors quite often.  We love to entertain and love to have guests in our home.

We've redone two of our guest rooms for the One Room Challenge to ensure our guests feel at home.  My very first time participating in the One Room Challenge I redid my Home Office/Guest Room.  6 challenges later we redid our Home Gym/Guest Room.

Step 1

Grab a TV Stand

As you can see we like to make the most of our spaces. :) Something I have wanted to make for quite some time is a luggage rack. 

I love using them at hotels so I thought it would be a nice thing to have for our guests.  I found a few tutorials online that were made from scratch.  I decided to make one with a TV table instead.

Step 2

Put a Plan Together

I started to take the top off of the TV table and realized the plan I had in my head wasn't going to work.  And that's okay!  It happens to everyone so don't feel discouraged if you are new to DIY!

Step 3

Use a HomeRight Spray Shelter to Paint Indoors

Since we recently have gone through a polar vortex in Minnesota that means all painting has to be done inside.  That is where the amazing HomeRight Medium Spray Shelter comes in!  This is by far one of my favorite tools for any painting project!  (Note: Make sure to do this in a fairly ventilated area of your home.)

Step 4

Clean and Paint

I cleaned the table really well before I started painting.  This is a very important step as dust and grime can really stop the paint from adhering properly. Once clean, I started by spray painting the table with light even strokes.

Instead of spray paint, you could also use a paint sprayer like the Super Finish Max or Finish Max.

Step 5

Apply Several Coats

I had to do several coats as the paint really soaked into the wood.                                                                                            

Step 6

Paint Every Angle

As I was painting I picked up the table from underneath and turned it to make sure I painted in every nook and cranny.

Step 7

Add a Pattern

Once the paint was dry I wanted to add one final touch to the top of the table.  I grabbed a stencil that I have been waiting for the perfect project to use. 

It's the Maloca Wall Art Stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils.  For a detailed tutorial on how to use stencils with paint head on over to see how I made over over a clock.

Step 8

Appreciate the Stencil Pattern :) 

I absolutely LOVE to stencil!  My most favorite stencil project I've done is this wall in our guest room.  This is the guest room I mentioned earlier and was my first big room reveal!  Here's the tutorial on how I did the stenciled lace wall.

Step 9

Seal the Table

The last piece of the puzzle was to put a few coats of polyurethane on top.  This will protect it from scratches and paint wearing off from use.                 

Step 10

Enjoy the Table

Although my project didn't go exactly as planned I'm really happy with how it turned out!  It now can be used for many things!  The first, as a luggage rack for our guests!

Step 11

It Functions as a Drawing Table... 

And my daughter loves to use it while we are downstairs as a table to draw or do homework on!                                                    

Step 12

And a Chair!

Apparently, it's also a chair!  Ha! Thank you so much for stopping by!  If you liked this tutorial please join my mailing list so you don't miss any of my DIY or Home Decor projects!  I also have a gallery full of projects that I've worked on since starting this blog!  Have a great day!
