Stencils Give New Life To Old Thrifty Furniture
Welcome back, my Cutting Edge Stencils friends! Have you driven past a piece of furniture at the curb and thought that you could totally transform it? We bet you will after reading today’s post! Our furniture stencils make transforming old furniture into curbside treasure super easy and affordable. Also with the recent addition of almost 30 new furniture stencils, we have the perfect pattern to flatter your style. Now we’re about to share how one of our creative bloggers used ONE furniture stencil to create TWO craft-tastic projects! Come check it out…
Let’s visit Jen, the creative DIYer behind Living In His Way. She has inherited multiple pieces of furniture from family and friends. These old pieces are typically used but still have lots of life left in them. Using our Casablanca Craft Stencil, Jen completed two amazing furniture makeovers in no time!
Casablanca Stenciled Coffee Table
Jen was given a plain wooden coffee table from a family friend to use in her family room. It was in decent shape but it didn’t match her decor. She commented, “It’s a nice table but just did not go with the decor. I was pretty embarrassed by the mismatch and used a blanket as a table cloth to cover it up when we had company.” Rather than toss the table to the curb, Jen decided to give it a painted makeover. She painted the table white using chalky paint. Then she added a pretty pattern to the top using our Casablanca Craft Stencil. She used painter’s tape to hold the stencil in place and painted the Moroccan pattern using a dense foam roller in Behr’s Chocolate Swirl. Jen said, “The finished product in our family room! I love this so much!”
Casablanca Stenciled Dresser
Jen was certainly bitten by the stenciling bug because shortly after completing her stenciled tabletop, she was ready to use her stencil again. That’s the great thing about our stencils. The plastic is durable so they can be reused for multiple projects. Jen had been given an old wooden dresser. It was used but it still had a lot of life left. She painted the dresser white using chalk paint and then chose to add a stencil feature across the front drawers. Jen used painter’s tape to hold the Casablanca Craft Stencil in place. She painted the Moroccan pattern using a dense foam roller in Behr’s Icon Grey. Jen had this to say about her stencil project, “This is such a huge improvement and I can’t believe how beautiful I was able to make this dresser on such a limited budget!”
