Taking Furniture from Drab to Fab with Stencils and Chalk Paint

Looking for some fabulous inspiration to transform furniture with stenciling? Look no further. Debbie Hayes of Faux Design Studio shares some of her favorite furniture pieces painted with Royal Design Studio stencils and Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™.

Faux Design Studio uses stencils and Chalk Paint 

1. Debbie Hayes, a long time customer and friend of Royal Design Studio, teaches furniture painting and sells finished furniture from her beautiful studio in Greensboro, NC.
An expert in both Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™ and stenciled pattern, Debbie has a masterful eye for both color and design.

2. This amazing armoire was painted and stenciled in a day using Duck Egg Blue and Old White Chalk Paint. Debbie accented the large panels with our popular Fabric Damask Stencil. For the narrow panels, Debbie chose the complimentary Brocade Border Stencil. A beautiful, large tassel provides an elegant, finishing touch!

3. Another Classic Damask Stencil was used on this delightful set of drawers. Allover damask pattern stencils are ideal for repeating across the tops of dressers, sideboards, and tabletops. Just stenciling one element on the front of the middle drawer provides a lovely accent.

4. We have a nice series of Italian Tile Stencils that come in a range of sizes from small to large. They are ideal for stenciling on small tabletops. For this lovely little piece, Debbie used our Large Palermo Tile stencil in Country Gray over Old Ochre Chalk Paint.

Hi Pam! Once you apply wax to a piece of furniture you normally can’t stencil over it with anything but wax-so yes, you should stencil first. The unique thing about Chalk Paint® is that you can paint back OVER the Soft Wax with the paint and the paint will bond, BUT you will need to rewax over THAT to protect it. Hope that makes sense!! :)

My girls and I are new to ASCP ! We love it and are transforming a piece right now. Do we wax over the stencil? I am assuming we don’t stencil over the wax. Can we use any stencil paint?

Thanks
Pam
