Good morning， my DIY friends.？ Cutting Edge Stencils loves how such simple items like paint， pattern， and some decorative knobs can easily transform an old piece of furniture.？ Today we have two stenciled furniture makeovers that are sure to inspire you!？ Let’；s take a look…；pillow cover home decor
We’；d like to introduce Amypillow shams floral， one of the creative DIYers behind the blog Canary Street Crafts.？ Amy admits to loving “；Fun knobs， pretty paper lined drawers， and of course painted graphics.”； And what is one of the easiest way to paint a pretty pattern on a piece of furniture？？ A stencil， of course. Her self-declared obsession for stenciling is no surprise to us.？ Amy stumbled upon a pair of tables at a local thrift shop and despite their particle board construction， she saw some possibilities. The first thing she did was coat the tables in Zinsser Shellac. Then she painted them using Annie Sloan chalk paint.？ She used a Coco color on the legs and Old White on the top. Once the tables were painted， Amy was ready for the fun part.？ She chose to paint the French Poem Allover Stencil in Annie Sloan Coco.？ Amy used painter’；s tape to hold the stencil in place and a stencil brush to paint on the script pattern.？ After the stencil was dry， she gave the tables a coat of clear wax for protection.？ We love the look of her newly stenciled table.
Next we’；d like to welcome back Anne， the creative gal behind the blog White Lace Cottage.？ Anne had a dresser that was sitting in her garage begging for a makeover.？ It was a decent piece of furniture but it lacked detail.？ It had been painted a flat white several years ago and the lackluster color made the piece dull.？ Anne decided to paint it using Heirloom Traditions chalk paint in French Butter.？ After the creamy white paint was dry， she decided to add a gold stripe around the drawers using painter’；s tape and？gold gilding wax.？ She simply marked off the stripe using the tape and wiped the gold wax on using an old t-shirt. To further enhance the regal look of the dresser dresser， Anne chose to paint our Fleur De Lis Stencil. ？ Anne used painter’；s tape to hold the stencil in place and the same wiping technique that she had used for the stripe.？ She had this to say about her project， ”； I really love how this turned out.？ So much prettier than a plan dresser.”；？ We love painted detail on this piece!
