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.
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.
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.
Are you ready to see how Erika’s stenciled dresser turned out?
It’s amazing how Erika was able to use paint and a pretty stencil pattern to transform this old dresser into something so glamtastic!
