If you have followed along you know I have a love affair with stenciling walls. I really wanted to stencil a piece of furniture to change things up!
We had this sweet little buffet that I painted in Persian Blue by General Finsihes.
A lot of you ask me all the time where I get my stencils and the answer is a quick, Royal Design Studio. I love them. In fact, it is where I also get my production sized stencils as well.
For this project, they sent me the Anastasia Damask Tile Stencil. This means that it overlaps really easily.
I gathered my stencil, stencil brush (also from Royal Design Studio) and paint. I used Seagull Gray for the actual stenciling.
I only wanted to use part of the stencil so I used the yellow frog tape which is for freshly painted surfaces. This not only kept my stencil in place but it kept me from painting in the areas that I didn't want to use on this project.
When I stencil, I dab my brush in the paint and then wipe it off on a paper towel so there is barely any paint left on the brush.
From there, I start the actual pouncing! I sped up this video so you could see what I actually do!
I did the same thing for the dresser top but I taped a different part of the stencil off. This video shows the whole process. Including, when I give up on pouncing and switch to a 4" foam roller. It also shows me using Krud Kutter and an artist brush to clean up mess ups. I just sprayed a little on and wiped the extra paint off. The stuff is magical!
Once it was all dry, I lightly distressed the seagull gray and resealed the piece!
I was super excited to get it back together and see the hardware gently touch the stencil on the door fronts!
And the top is perfectly distressed!
And guess what?!?! I am going to give away a stencil this week so come back and check out our blog for that!
