Stenciling and painting furniture is a great way to give new life to an older piece and transform its look completely. There's a certain joy to seeing a DIY Painted Furniture project go from a possibly neglected state to being a focal point in your home. The process is a relatively easy one, with products such as Chalk Paint® decorative paint and Stencil Cremes to help makeover anything from chairs to tables to dressers to larger items such as a wardrobe. Royal Design Studio also has an extensive Furniture Stencils Collection that makes it super easy to find the best pattern for your furniture at the right size. You can adapt your furniture re-do to any color scheme that works with your home and it's an ideal weekend project. Let's see a few inspiring before and after stenciled furniture projects by some of our most creative customers and friends!
Jaimee from Craft Interruped is a furniture makeover dynamo and we were so pleased to see this then and wow! transformation. She used the Chez Ali Moroccan Stencil from the Allover Moroccan Stencils Collection and our fave part is that she used a third color in the mix. Very inspired! Be sure to check out the stenciled and painted coffee table post on her blog.
Marian of Miss Mustard Seed expertly transforms thrift store finds and we love seeing all her new "antiques". We were so pleased to see this très chic dresser styled with our Springtime in Paris Letter Stencil. She showcased her Stenciled French Poem Dresser on her blog and shares that she used Cream Chalk Paint® decorative paint as the base and Paris Grey Chalk Paint® to stencil in the french poem lettering. So lovely!
Angela Gorini Perrone of Divine Rooms is a decorative artist based in Brooklyn, NY. We recommended her to interior designer Tamara Matthews-Stephenson of Nest by Tamara and together they collaborated on giving a facelift to a plain IKEA armoire. Our Large Eastern Lattice Moroccan Stencil helped refresh the ten-year old wardrobe and Tamara was so pleased, she wrote a blog post on her stenciled armoire. Doesn't the stencil make it?? We love the color they chose, too!
Beautiful stenciled furniture is always in style - whether it's big OR small! Hannah of Champagne Lifestyle on a Beer Budget had two distressed TV tables that had clearly seen better days. The modern Hollywood Squares stencil fit her style perfectly and after sanding them, she sprayed them with black lacquer and filled in the stencil design with a gold leaf pen. Easy-peasy! She has the play-by-play action on her stenciled TV Tray project over on her blog.
With a fresh coat of paint and your fave stencil pattern, your furniture can get a whole new look without breaking the bank! Be sure to send us your Before + After pics to firstname.lastname@example.org -- we're always looking for inspired stencil ideas to share! Have a creative day, Stencilistas!
