Al Fresco Table

This was a simple and sweet project that I took to the Little French Flea Market and it almost sold and I may still have a buyer for it, but January, even in California, is still not the best time to sell a patio table.  As you can see, I still seem to be in my black and white binge.
This was a very weathered dirty table I found one day while I was out thrifting.  I shot it with some indoor/outdoor paint and it was still pretty blah.  Functional but blah.
After digging through my inexpensive stencils that I found at Michael's, I found the perfect stencil to fit the wood slats on the table.
The simplicity of the black stencil against the plain white is stunning and elegant.  If this doesn't sell to the buyer that is interested, I'm going to look for a small inexpensive patio umbrella in white and use the stencil around it.  I think it will be charming for some one's patio in the spring.  I need to find two cute little chairs as well.

Thanks for your visit.  I hope the brutal winter that some of you are experiencing thaws quickly and you have an early spring.
