If you have followed along you know I have a love affair with stenciling walls. So it would make sense that stenciling furniture would come next. I really wanted to stencil a piece of furniture to change things up!
I gathered my stencil, stencil brush (also from Royal Design Studio) and paint. I used Seagull Gray for the actual stenciling.
Only wanting to use part of the stencil, I needed to tape the rest off. To do this 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!
