Stencil Patterns Can Add WOW Factor to Old Pieces of Furniture
Good morning, my crafty friends! Do you love seeing a pretty pattern in an unexpected place? We sure do! It can be refreshing and eye-catching to spot a fun design on the side of a dresser drawer when you open it. We, here at Cutting Edge Stencils, think of it as design eye-candy. After all doesn’t every space deserve a stenciled splash somewhere? We’ve rounded up two awesome stenciled DIY projects…
We’d like to welcome back Kimbo, the creative mind behind A Girl and a Glue Gun. Kimbo’s daughter needed a desk for her room so she was super excited when she scored a vintage wooden desk. She decided to give it a makeover to better fit the style and sass of her daughter’s space. First she coated the wooden desk using a white primer and then she painted it using three cans of sun yellow krylon spray paint. Once the desk looked like a little ray of sunshine, Kimbo kicked it up a notch with a peek-a-boo pattern. She painted the sides of the desk drawers in white and added a fun pattern using our Polka Dot Allover Stencil in black. Then to complete the piece she added one last stenciled surprise. On the inside of the big drawer she painted a black flower using our Zinnia Grande stencil. Kimbo had this to say about her stencil project, “such a fun little pop! I love it so much! Can’t wait until her room is all put together!”
Next we’d like you to meet Sheila, the crafty DIYer from Furniture Alchemy. Sheila stumbled upon an old dresser and knew it was a flea market find. Since she had been working on so many custom orders for her clients, she was excited to have a project where her creativity could just flow. First she sanded the piece and painted it a gorgeous shade of turquoise. To give it the ultimate WOW factor she stenciled our Indian Inlay Stencil pattern in blue, rose, and gold. Then she lightly sanded the dresser for a distressed look. With such a lovely design painted on these drawers, we’d be surprised if its new owner ever closed them!
