Vintage Thrift Shop Two Tiered Table Up-Cycle


I found this sweet little two tiered table at the thrift shop last week.  It has some water damage and the top tier was a little warped but it had possibilities.  It was made by Mersman, a midcentury table company.


First, I painted the table with two coats of Rust-Oleum Chalked Paint in Country Gray .  I then stenciled the table with my new Mandala stencil from Hobby Lobby.  The stencil only cost me $2.99.

I used the larger  center Mandala design for the top tier and the corner stencils in four spots equidistant from the center on the bottom tier.  I stenciled the designs with Delta Ceramcoat Acrylic Paint in Light Ivory .  This is my go to color for white or light stenciling.  Then I used my FolkArt Layering Block with the light ivory craft paint to faux distress the edges of the table.  I have never used any craft paint but Ceramcoat Walnut Noyer to faux distress with my layering block.  I like the new effect with light ivory paint.

I brushed on one coat of Rust-Oleum Matte Interior Chalked Sealer to protect the chalk paint finish and stenciling on my table.

I think it's adorable!
A great $10 thrift shop investment!

  1. This turned out so cute! My grandfather used to be a salesman for Mersman furniture back in the 50's.

  3. This is adorable! What did you do about the warping & the water damage? Just paint over it? I didn't see where you said what you did.
