Plaster Molds decorate walls and furniture

Before

 

Charlene Dougherty found her head and foot board at an antique store.  They were nice, but she wanted them to be a little more ornate.

Charlene had purchased our products before and knew right where to go to get what she needed.

She painted the head board then cast pieces from our plaster vertical leaves mold and

straight scroll mold to create the center design.

On the wall, she used our vertical leaves mold, our Large Floral Medallion Plaster Mold and used our Raised Plaster Single Acanthus Stencil in between the plaster pieces.

The whole project came out so lovely. Especially on those beautiful blue walls.

Yes, I really did find it at the end of my road, laying there on the ground. No seat, just a frame of nasty wood.

I HAD to haul it home and do something with it.

I’d seen on Facebook where people were turning old chairs like this in to garden planters, but that didn’t really hit me as a fun project to do.

I thought “princess chair” because it’s such a small chair and perfect for a little girl to sit on.

I first sanded and primed it, then decided it needed plaster stenciling to create a raised design on the back rails and around the bottom.

On furniture, I like to use pre-mixed tile grout because it dries rock hard and stays put.

I applied the grout to the stencil and then peeled it off to reveal the new design.

There are some strange holes on the fronts of the legs and I just happened to have two cute rose droplet resin appliques that would be perfect to cover the top two holes. I glued them in to place.

I then painted the entire chair and it’s embellishments with gray paint.

To create a new seat, I cut plywood to match the top of the chair.

I then used one of my new stencils to add a pretty design in metallic gold paint to a section of gray satin I had lying around in my material box.

I cut foam rubber to match the seat size, then created the finished seat with my electric staple gun. Tug, staple, tug, staple and it was done!

I finished the chair by replacing the stencil over the raised designs and stenciled them with the same metallic gold paint, adding it to the resin appliques as well. I added antique brown wax at various edges of the chair to give it more detail, blending well with an old terry towel.

The finishing touch was to glue gold fabric cord to the bottom edge of the cushion to complete the look.

Now it’s ready for some little princess to love!
