I found these two tables at a garage sale in Springfield, MO with my mom. They had cobwebs all over them and one of them had a split in the top - but with a little wood glue and stain, I thought they would be perfect for our front porch.
I used some Gorilla™ Wood Glue to mend the top of the one, then sanded them both lightly. There was no previous finish on it, so it didn’t take much. I then used some stencil letters and white acrylic paint for the text. I used Elmer’s Spray Adhesive (a temporary bond) to ensure that the letters didn’t move while I was painting. When the paint dried, I used a Minwax® Red Mahogany stain (I only needed one coat because the wood was so porous) over the entire thing. The stain tinted the letters slightly to make it almost a purple-ish color. I wiped the stain off and it was done. Easy breezy.
