“What’s the ’31’ for…?” A Halloween end table.

I thought it was obvious that the 31 I stenciled on this table was for October 31, but enough people asked me about it that I am now certain it is obvious only to me.
Halloween end table.

For my Halloween party, the apple green and turquoise had to go.  I wanted silver and black.

I took the turquoise table and spray painted it with Krylon’s metallic silver paint.  Once dry, I laid down a stencil I made with my Cricut and contact paper.  Then I lightly sprayed the 31 with more of the same silver paint.  While the silver was still wet, I lightly sprayed a gloss black paint over the top of it. (Just like my faux mercury glass pumpkin)

It looks old and mottled and I think it’s really cool.

Stay tuned! Big Halloween Party wrap up coming soon.

I am trying to think how many looks that table and chair set has had?

You are a spray painting genius my friend.

I totally would have understood what the 31 meant.
