How To Make A Chalk Paint Pineapple Stenciled Table
Why pineapples? I have a thing about Pineapples. Which is probably why my sister gave me some pineapple knobs for Christmas. I was dying to use the pineapple handles for a furniture upcycle. That’s why I made this pineapple stenciled table.
I think of pineapples as being the king of fruits. I hate to admit it, but I’m easily seduced by great looking packaging. As far as fruit go, the pineapple wins hands down in the looks department. Also having been brought up in the tropics I do like tropical themed crafts. Last year I made a tropical themed birdhouse decoration.
There was not much wrong with the console table I picked up from the junk store. It was the perfect size for my lounge with 2 handy draws for the remote and takeaway menus. It was just a bit boring and tired looking. All it need was a bit of pimping with paint and new handles to turn it into something delightful and a bit more interesting.
As well as a tropical theme, I wanted to give the console table a shabby chalk paint makeover gold and black paint job. New pineapple knobs just added to the whole effect on the pineapple stenciled table.

What You Need For A Stenciled Table Makeover
- Pineapple cabinet knobs – Mine
were a presentbut you should be able to find some online.
- Montanna Gold – Gold Chrome Spray paint.
- Black Chalk Paint
- A clear furniture wax for chalk paint.
- Rounded chalk paint brush
- Pineapple Stencils – I was going to make my own pineapple stencil but when I saw how cheap they were online I didn’t think it was worth the effort, so I bought some.
- Pineapple wrapping paper to line the draws.
Painting the stenciled table1. I wanted to go for a black and gold shabby, chippy paint effect. To achieve this firstly I spray painted the edges of the console with the gold chrome spray paint. It’s best to do this outside as spray paint can be a bit smelly.
2. Once the gold paint is dry and before covering the console table with the black chalk paint, I brushed vaseline on the edges and corners where I wanted the gold paint to show through.
3. Next, paint the table with the black chalk paint and leave to dry. Once dry use a cloth to rub away the black paint from the edges where you put the vaseline. The paint should come away easily revealing the gold underneath.
How to Make the Pineapple Stenciled Table
I used 2 pineapple stencils for this stenciled table. They were actually the same design but different sizes.1. The first thing I did was tape the large pineapple stencil with masking tape to the top of the cupboard and sprayed with the gold chrome paint.
If you can’t get the stencil to lie totally flat then I recommend using a stencil brush and a dabbing motion. You can either use some liquid gold paint for this. Or as the stencil is only a small area, you can spray some of the gold paint out of the can to create a paint puddle. Then use this puddle of paint with the stencil brush.
2. Next, I taped the small pineapple stencils to the side of the table. Again I painted these with gold paint. The table was laid down on
3. Even though the pineapple knobs my sister gave me were the inspiration for this pineapple stenciled table. They were the wrong
4. For the finishing touch, I lined the two drawers on the stenciled table with pineapple gift wrap.
5. Finally to seal the chalk paint I applied clear furniture wax with a soft cloth to the pineapple stenciled table.
The pineapple table really fits in well with my pineapple decor. I’ve even made some gold crushed can DIY planters to match the theme.
