You can still save a scuffed outdoor table and make it look like new. You can cover or repaint it but a simple stenciling job will definitely give it a cheery new look. Here’s what you should do: Look for a pretty floral (or you can choose whatever design you want) template online, enlarge it and print several copies. Trace each onto a piece of freezer paper or acetate, then cut out the details to create your stencil. Position it on the table and tape in place with masking tape.

Next, dip a flat-topped stencil brush into acrylic paint. Then blot the top of the brush against a paper towel to remove excess paint. Using a dabbing motion, apply the paint to the stencil and let dry. Repeat to add more flowers.
