I love my neighbor Chris Saavedra. A beautiful, fabulously charming woman whom I enjoy spending time with.

This year, Chris began re-doing old furniture to sell at craft fairs. So what a perfect time to introduce her to the art of stenciling.

She went NUTS! Just about every piece she produced was embellished with a stencil design that made the piece even more special.

This coffee table project was one of my favorites. She painted the base and legs white, painted the top brown then added one of our stencil designs to the very center. It came out so beautiful that I nearly lugged it home for myself! Isn’t it just sweet?

She did well at the craft fair with some pieces selling for as high as $150.00

Check out her end table pet bed project! Simply adorable!

I love seeing what other people do with my designs and their ideas for painting finishes on furniture. It gives me new inspiration!

I kept seeing this broken round table at a dump site and finally wound up putting it in my jeep and hauling it home.

One of the legs was broken so I glued it back together with wood glue and clamps and by the next day, it was good as new.

After a good sanding with my handy electric palm sander, I decided to embellish it with plaster stenciling. Using wood putty instead of joint compound creates a rock hard design that will stand abuse.

I repeated the design all the way around the table.

After painting the entire table black, I began by painting the raised design with gold acrylic paint.

Now the top needed something special as well so I used our Raised Plaster Astana Medallion Stencil with acrylic paints instead of joint compound to create a medallion on the top of the table.

Now it was a fabulous addition to my home.
