Typography Coffee Table

This project took me a little longer to do than I had hoped, but it's finished and I love the simplicity of it.  I only wish I had taken a before picture of the coffee table.  It was a wreck, but a steal of a deal price so I dragged it home and told my husband to just paint it and be done with it.  He painted it with heirloom white.
I've never been one to love the plain Jane look so I went to work putting a design on it.  I used five different stencils, four of which were under $7 each so you could easily duplicate this if you are inspired.  The acrylic paint I used for the lettering is by Martha Stewart and it's called Gray Wolf.  It's a current color I purchased at Michael's.  It's almost a taupe gray.  I'm not even going to shade the lettering.  I love the simple look this table now has.  I would even love this at the foot of a bed. 
Here is the Graphics Fairy image I used for my inspiration.  As simple as it is, it packs a lot of detail with the different fonts.  Graphics Fairy titled it "white rose" and she posted it October 20, 2012.  It's the back side of an antique trading card.

As always, thanks for visiting.
