I am so excited the day is finally here to share the completed stenciling project with you. If you have been following along on either my Facebook page or Instagram page, you have watched me stencil a dresser that my sister had.
This dresser is old and has a lot of charm but sadly sat neglected for years and years in a garage, holding tools and some special type of creature I am going to pretend didn’t take up residence here.
I asked my sister to browse the Cutting Edge Stencils website to pick out a style she liked so I could transform this into something fresh. You guys, there is a huge selection to choose from!
She decided for this piece, she wanted the boho look and chose the Indian Inlay Furniture Stencil.
This is my fourth time using a stencil from Cutting Edge but my first time on furniture. I have stenciled two walls at my old house and the stoop of my house now. Before we go into much detail, stenciling is not hard or scary! It is such an affordable option for wallpaper. There are so many times I find a wallpaper that I love but cannot stomach the thought of spending $500 to paper a single wall. I have found that I can find a very similar stencil that will give me the same feels. The best part is that you can customize your color choices.
CES does offer a ton of videos on their website to help get you through some of the questions you may have and they are super helpful.
My two pieces of wisdom for you are: always use spray adhesive and if you make a mistake, it is just paint! It can be fixed.
ANYWAYS, here is what that poor beat up dresser looks like today:
This stencil came with five small stencils that allowed you to create any pattern you wanted. No two pieces have to look the same, which is pretty cool. Since these are smaller stencils, it does take a little more time than a wall stencil, but I really enjoyed the flexibility I had. I was able to leave some blank space on the top and sides so there was a visual break.
I used a pouncing stencil brush from the hardware store for this, but I think I would have rather used a stenciling roller. This is the second time I tried the brush and it wasn’t my favorite.
I made a few mistakes by rushing the process or accidental movement but remember what I said before, it is just paint and I was easily able to fix the issue.
Here is the best part of this post and the one I am most excited about! Cutting Edge Stencils has graciously offered one of you $50 towards any stencil of your choice! That is so incredible because a lot of their stencils start at $10!
