Next remove any risidual dust from the table.

Paint the table white

Next, give the table a white basecoat using a primer/paint combination.

Once your base coat is dry, you are ready to place your folksy bloom stencil. Frog Tape works great to hold the stencil in place.

First color

Shake each paint thoroughly before pouring out a small amount on a paper plate.

Swirl the brush

Remove excess paint

Remove excess paint from the brush using a stack of clean paper towels.
