Pie Crust Pedistal Table From Shabby to Chic

Pie Crust Pedestal Table stencil -paintWhat to Use For This Look

Gather your supplies: Sandpaper for prepping, metallic spray paint for the base coat, Ralph Lauren Candlelight topcoat, a large harlequin or other stencil and a foam stencil brush.

If you can’t find RL Candlelight, you can use a similar color latex paint in a different finish from the base coat. If your base is semi or glossy, then use a satin or flat for the stencil or vice-versa.
