Inlay a Table!!

A trip to India right here in my family room.  I bought this table from target few years back,  love the round shape with pedestal base. Many times tempted to paint glad didn’t .

Bone Inlays with mother of pearl are a masterpiece.  I wanted to try almost free handed one and did stick with what i know and also my very own simple design : ) .

At michaels , Martha Stewart stencils a few can be used as Indian/Moroccan style designs.  I bought them 3 yrs back. Did use one Martha Stewart stencil for the top of the table.. Cuttingedgestencils also sells a variety of  inlay stencils.

The materials used for this project are white acrylic paint,thin artist brush , martha stewart stencil and stencil brush and you could use pearl base paint but i didn’t:  ) .

First step is to stencil in the middle , the medallion shape stencil , then i used the old flower candle (pier 1 find ) and traced it with the artist pen.

Next is to fill the border with flower shapes. And did paint them, didn’t mind the little blotchy which is ok as it will give a bolder look.

Then just scroll the lines in between them and add “leaves” .  And now moving to the rim of the top base, i did add little dots all over .

Now the pedestal, i did free hand the design and also scroll top and bottom with lines and leaves again.

And i used the same medallion kind stencil for the feet but only painted the inner most rim of it which is very small.

I have seen a price tag of $399 for half a size of this table of course with mother of pearl inlay but for the fraction of the price you can have a Indian bone inlay designed furniture.

Next to window , sunlight shines on it and makes it look even prettier. I’m really happy with it. I did give a coat of sealer after the paint dried completely, so it lasts for a very long time.

Thanks for stopping and for the read!!
