Painted Chevron Stripes transform a vintage metal school design into a Mid-Century marvel with the help of our Chevron Stripes Furniture Stencil. We recently feature the work of Ida from The Urban Cottage in this Airstream Trailer stencil transformation and now she's back with another stencil project that is TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL!
Good golly, I think this could have been on of MY desks from Jr. High School as I TOTALLY remember these and loved sliding my paper-bag wrapped and doodle-on textbooks into those types of shelves. I'm guessing that there might have been gum underneath this desk too (Ugh!)
More on this stencil project:
When painting over rusted metal it's best to sand lightly and clean well. Then-spray paint is your best friend. Ida used a flat spray paint from Krylon as her base and then flat latex paint for the Chevron stencil. For added protection, you topcoat painted furniture with a good water-base poly.
Ida sells her fabulous furniture makeovers throughout the Dallas, TX area and you can find more of her creations on The Urban Cottage blog.
