DIY Repurposed Cheese Box Becomes A Fun Coffee Themed Side Table



I found another round, wooden cheese box at a local antiques/consignment shop.  This one had been stenciled with green ivy vines.

I paid $5.

 I sanded the cheese box just a bit to scuff it up, as it was quite shiny.

I then brushed on two coats of Dixie Belle Chalk Finish Paint in Hurricane Gray.  I distressed the cheese box lightly with 220 grit sandpaper on the edges mostly.

For all you coffee lovers out there, I used a fun new stencil today!  

It's Fresh Coffee from *Old Sign Stencils!

The stencil fit so perfectly on the cover of the cheese box.

I pounced on the stencil using Dixie Belle Chalk Finish Paint in Drop Cloth.  I then rubbed on a light coat of Dixie Belle Best Dang Wax in Clear.  I used a INTEX SUPPLY Fiber Rag to apply the wax.

If you are unfamiliar with Dixie Belle Paints, its website has wonderful videos and instructions.


I paid $4.99 a piece when the metal products were 50% off.

This is how the legs were added.

This little table is perfect next to a chair to hold a beverage or a remote!  (Just use a coaster. LOL!)
