Step 3: Remove the stencil and use the registration marks built into the stencil to reposition it for the next repeat.

Step 4: Repeat Step 2 and Step 3 until the front, back and sides of the furniture are stenciled. On the sides, start stenciling from the top using the ceiling filler that comes with this stencil. Allow to dry.

Step 5: Replace the stencil directly on top of the pattern you just stenciled. Use the ½” stencil brush and Van Dyke Brown Stain & Seal® to stencil the smaller design elements. Repeat this step with the front, back, and sides of the furniture. Allow to dry.
