Christmas Decor from a Table

Updated: Apr 21

I am still plugging away getting things ready for the upcoming Christmas open houses, so I am working on projects in bulk! One of my side gigs is doing estate sales. We did one recently for a sweet woman who was downsizing. She had a lot of random wood pieces. I purchased several old table leaves from her. They had been in her barn for a while so they all needed a good cleaning.

After they were clean and dry, I added a coat of Varathane Crystal Clear Satin Exterior polyurethane.




I know I have said it before, but I really love what a coat of poly does to enhance the richness of the wood.



I created stencils for each on using my Silhouette Cameo 3. Some were existing designs I had purchased and some I designed. I painted each sign with various colors.

When they were dry, I peeled off the stencil and gave each sign two more coats of the exterior poly.


These are the finished signs. I added hangers on the back of each one and they are finished!

Whether my junk is from a garage sale, estate or farm auction, flea market or the side of the road, I love to find it, fix it, clean it, sell it or keep it.
