Summer is here in full swing and I’ve been spending my extra time refreshing our backyard for summer entertaining. We recently painted the exterior of our home, and you know what happens when you paint something; everything else starts to look drab! So I decided to refresh my patio furniture and share how to paint and stencil tile just in time for summer parties!

There wasn’t anything “wrong” with our patio furniture, per say. It just doesn’t “go” with the new paint colors. So instead of investing in the $2000 patio set of my dreams, I decided to save my money and just give my patio furniture a face lift.
How to Paint and Stencil Tile with Vinyl
I’ve been wanting to stencil tile for a while and this piece is just the right size to share how to paint and stencil tile. We also have a coordinating outdoor dining table that I’m going to refresh soon, but I haven’t decided on the design, just yet. Decisions, decisions!
This table is a small coffee table that is part of a casual set my hubby and sons bought for me on Mother’s Day several years ago. It’s in great condition, but the style is just dated. With a little bit of effort, paint and time I was able to bring this table up to date which will coordinate nicely with the rest of the backyard area. I will also be painting the chairs that match this table, stay tuned for the whole reveal soon!
To capture the process, I created a video with the step by step process including the vinyl cutting with Cricut; so be sure to watch it in it’s entirety below!
- Cricut Explore Air 2™ or Cricut Maker
- Cutting Mat (I used the light grip mat, but the standard mat works fine too)

- Cricut Tools
- Rust-Oleum Chalked Paint in Charcoal and Linen White
- Polyacrylic Sealer

Spray Painting A Metal Table
My friends over at HomeRight sent me this Large Spray Shelter a while back, and I love it! It’s perfect for home decor projects. I set mine up to keep the wind and direct sunlight away from my table as I painted it. I have the small one too, you can see it in action HERE.
I wanted a flat enamel for the metal table frame. So of course, Rust-Oleum was my go to brand!
Two coats were all that was needed to provide even coverage. And with our dry heat climate, it dried in record time!
I love how this little project came out and I can’t wait to show you the rest of the patio furniture! I have ordered a few out door rugs to pull it all together and I’m so excited to share later this month!
So what do you think? Now that you know how to paint and stencil tile, will you be refreshing any home decor items soon? I’d love to hear from you!
