Striped Stained & Painted Wood Table and Deer Mount Plaque

Hi Sweet Readers,

I have been wanting to try this paint and stain technique inspired by for quite sometime.  The inspired paint and stain technique worked out so beautifully on my wooden plaque that I recently finished a round table the same way.  The website and tutorial can be found HERE.  A few days ago I stained a wooden plaque to mount a set of deer antlers.   To read about how to strip and stain wood you can read up on it HERE.  I wanted to glam up the deer antlers and so I added Vintage Gold paint to give a subtle touch of glamour.

I started with the wooden plaque I stained

I added Frog Tape to cover the entire plaque (lazy girl's way to get out of measuring)

After applying all the tape, remove every other line of tape

I recycled the tape I removed and placed over the perimeter edges

I painted in the open areas with some white paint I had on hand

I used several coats to finish the project and applied a little bit of stain on top of the white paint to give it a weathered look

I also painted the tips of the antlers including the center skull using a Vintage Gold paint color  (I recycled the frog tape to do this as well) I like that it's not too glammed up, I think the natural look brings the perfect touch of nature into our home.

This will be hung in our living room as soon as I can get the hardware to hang it up.  I will be sure to follow up with pics!

I really liked how the table turned out. 

I hope I inspired you to do something similar!
