Glorious Color! A Girl and a Glue Gun stenciled a colorful surprise on her desk drawers with the French Floral Damask Stencil. The colors pop so nicely against the freshness of the white desk exterior! The bright colors are so fun to look at it’s almost a shame to have to shut the drawers! If you love this look as much as we do, considering copying the idea, but instead, stencil this fabulous floral damask pattern on the OUTSIDES of the drawers.
Arts and Classy loves our Harlequin Furniture Stencil! She says, “After a little more love with this awesome stencil I was able to create a dynamic piece that is both functional and beautiful.” The updated rustic glam look definitely delivers style, and also saved her money from buying brand new furniture.
Jen Woodhouse stenciled a bench that now looks amazing! This DIY project highlights how easy it is to take a more traditional piece of furniture and make it modern with an unexpected color and geometric design. With the help of our African Plumes Furniture Stencil and navy and gold paint, Jen was able to create the art deco glam look she wanted for her foyer.
What a difference even a little stenciling can make! At Home in Love added a happy dose of style and color with the Harlequin Furniture Stencil to this stenciled nightstand. This custom look was achieved by stenciling random bright colors throughout the pattern and then letting the harlequin design “branch out” with just one color.
