Flea Market Furniture Flip Using A Dalmatian Stencil

Stencil Designs Can Put A Modern Twist On Dated Furniture

Welcome back, my Cutting Edge Stencils friends.  Turn castoff into pretty pieces you’ll love and actually use. Our stencil patterns make it super easy to give old furniture a whole new look. Come see how we put a trendy spin on an old dresser using our Dalmatian Spot Allover Stencil.

Erika, our in-house craft guru, is known for her furniture makeover projects. She scooped up this old wooden dresser at a local garage sale. It was beat up and old but had a great shape and a ton of potential. Watch this quick video tutorial about this furniture flip project.


Let’s walk through this tutorial.  Here is the dresser before.

Erika had spotted some inspiration in HGTV Magazine. The creative publication had featured a furniture flip with a modern dot pattern.

To kick off her project, Erika gently sanded the exterior and then wiped off the debris. She primed the clean dresser using STIX Primer in White.

Once the primer was dry, the dresser was ready to be painted. Erika chose to paint the dresser in Benjamin Moore Black using a dense foam roller.
She planned to stencil the top of the dresser and the center drawer fronts. The side drawers were going to be painted in Millennial Pink, the trendy new pink color.

Erika browsed the Cutting Edge Stencils website for the perfect spot pattern and chose the Dalmatian Spot Allover Stencil. This spotty pattern is ideal for a project like this one.

Erika wanted to stencil the dot pattern across the top of the dresser. She taped off a one inch border around the edge of the dresser. Then she painted the rectangle white because she planned to paint the Dalmatian pattern in black.

Erika applied spray adhesive to the back of the stencil. We like to use Sticky Note spray adhesive which can be purchased on Amazon. Then she placed the stencil on the top of the dresser.
For the stencil color, Erika used Benjamin Moore Black. She used a 4″ dense foam roller to paint the spotty pattern.  She made sure she rolled off any excess paint on a piece of paper towel.  Too much paint will cause the design to bleed. Then she painted the entire pattern on to the dresser.

Once the entire design was painted, Erika lifted the stencil back to reveal the pattern.

Erika had to reposition the stencil to complete the pattern across the top. She lined up the stencil using the registration marks.

After the pattern was painted across the top of the dresser, she pealed back the tape to reveal the pattern.

To add a subtle pop of color and keep this piece looking super trendy, Erika painted the side drawer fronts in Millennial Pink (Benjamin Moore Hearts Delight 1283).

She spray painted the existing drawer pulls in Metallic Gold.

Erika carried the Dalmatian Spot pattern down the center drawer fronts following a similar method to the first part of the project.
