Joni McDonald is a creative little thing. Full of fun and lots of ideas. It even comes across in her emails to me.

Discovering plaster stencils has added to her creative side by giving her yet one more medium with which to create.

She pondered, she plotted and planned, she calculated and experimented, and she finally came up with just the right solution for her new need to embellish. She used a plaster stencil on her metal mailbox! Now what a novel idea and Joni is just the gal to come up with it.

Giving it a pretty patina paint finish, she then added the plaster stencil and painted it copper gold. Lovely isn’t it? Now, just imagine the oohs and aaahs coming from her mailman (or lady) the next time they deliver the mail. Joni delivers them some “beauty and originality!”. Joni graciously let me share this adorable project with you and for that, we all thank her! (Bowing to your greatness Joni!)

Joyce Hewton of RusticFarmhouseCharm.com thought this plain little corner of the room would be the perfect place for our Large Tree Stencil Set, and it is!
In the above photo, you can see where she began with the trunk element of the stencil set, repeating it upward then beginning to add leafy branches where ever she saw fit until the tree was completely finished.
It came out great, don’t you think?

This stencil set also comes with a FREE birds stencil to add little birds seated on the branches or flying around the tree.
Dori thought she would give it a try: Our life-sized, Raised Plaster Aspen Tree Stencil Set.

She first painted her walls deep gray then using joint compound, repeated the trunk from the baseboard up to the ceiling. Adding side branches came next then the leafy branches. On the leaves, she added green paint to the joint compound to save tons of work later!

What a lovely addition to this room! Great job Dori!
Remember that all of our plaster stencils can also be used with paints!

Calle’s ReDesign Furniture has discovered our Raised Plaster Stencils! This gal is amazing when it comes to re-designing old furniture and giving it new life. The colors she uses, the placement of the designs and her awesome finishes make her pieces one of a kind.
On this piece, she used our Raised Plaster Chantal Frieze Stencil on the front. She flipped and repeated it for a mirrored image (and to create a larger design) then used just a portion of the stencil design in the very center of the repeat.

Teresa John knew what she wanted in this room and she found just the stencil to create the look.
She first painted the wall a rich brown color then used our Raised Plaster Aspen Tree Stencil Set to create ceiling to floor trees to completely fill this lovely wall.

Using the joint compound as we recommend, she creates knarly looking bark that looks and feels like real bark!
Pre-tinting a portion of the joint compound with green paint took the step of having to paint the leaves completely away.

She called it fun…..I call it rustic elegance in a stencil!
Joyce Hewton from www.RusticFarmhouseCharm.com comes up with the cutest ideas!
This little desk got the most adorable make over when Joyce used our Chinese Rose Tree Stencil Set over the top of the desk.

I love the very neutral brown she used for the main body of the desk and then did the drawers in a delicate blue. Notice the nobs are also painted brown to coordinate.

On the top of the desk, she created the look of chinoiserie by repeating the trunk stencil, adding leaves and roses and finally adding the tropical bird in the same pale blue she used for the drawers.
What a fun and unusual make over!

This is by far my most favorite artistic project!
In our home in the mountains of Idaho, we had a 27 foot bedroom, which also meant a 27 foot blank ceiling!
As I lay in bed one morning, staring at that massive ceiling, I got the bright idea to give it something so spectacular! Something that would just knock the socks off anyone who ever saw it (and trust me, it DID!).
I found the center of the ceiling, then measuring from the walls inward, equal distances away from the walls then taped off a big rectangle with a smaller rectangle inside.

I then painted that frame a tan color and sponged a brown glaze over the top to create a mottled color effect.

Finding the center of the frame and snapping chalk lines, I used our Raised Plaster Floral Medallion Stencil in a repeated fashion to create a large medallion right in the center. Pre-tinting the joint compound with brown paint helped to save me time later in trying to paint the white design. I used the same design in the corners facing the center of the frame.

Using plaster of paris, I cast our Oasis Plaster Mold over and over to create the pieces you see around the frame. In the corners, I cast our our Floral Medallion Mold and Grape Leaves Mold as fill in pieces.

That beautiful ceiling frame helped sell the house two years later.
Now I’m considering doing one on the bedroom ceiling in the house I currently own in New Mexico. 
Check out all of our Plaster Molds and Plaster Stencils and let your imagination help you decide how to give your home an exciting new look! There’s no end to what YOU can do!

Amber LeClair has a way with making a tired old piece of furniture take on a whole new life.
First painting the piece and cleaning up the hardware, she then added our Raised Plaster Fransaise Stencil combined with our Raised Plaster Oxford Panel Stencil to give the piece dramatic design.
Portions of designs can be used (as she did here) when a full design won’t fit a particular area.

Melinda re-did her dining room in a gray palet which is very modern and updated. But those lower panels needed something extra special.
She used our Raised Plaster Flores Panel Stencil with metallic silver paint over the darker gray paint color. Not only did it add a wonderful pattern to the panels, the metallic paint gave it an extra dose of glam!

Here’s what she said about the project:

“Your stencil is amazing and my project turned out GORGEOUS. I had planned to do a dimensional border, silver on cream walls above plain gray panels. But realized that the stencil is exactly the right size for the panels themselves. So instead I did silver paint on gray chalk paint. The result is incredible. Thanks so much”

Remember that all of our Raised Plaster Stencils can also be used with paint for any project you have in mind.
Margaret Tarkington knew exactly what she wanted to do on the exterior of her home and it had to be cheery and colorful! And what she did feels like it right out of a Bavarian village!
Using our Raised Plaster Art Deco Flower Border Stencil with just paint, she first painted the exterior trim with dark green paint then added the stencil design in lighter green for the body of the border and then brilliant red and yellow for the flowers.

All the windows and doorways were done in the same manner.

What I loved about this set of windows is that she decided to paint the frames between the panes of glass with the same lighter green she used in the border design. Set against that dark green background really made this set of windows come to life.

Keeping the stencil design above the doorway only allowed her the creative use of paint she’s done to create this welcoming entry. Picking up the lighter green again, and buttery yellow of the flower centers, she brightened up the doors to create a real focal point.
I honestly just wanted to get on bended knee and applaud her for this wonderful make over of the exterior of her home. It’s unusual, creative and so cheerful! Thank you for letting me share Margaret! You did a spectacular job!
