Pam Findley was (and I mean “was”) like most of us. Construction grade cabinets in her kitchen and she wanted more. More I say! More!

And she got it!

She used our Raised Plaster Companion Vines Stencil to create beautiful raised vines on those plain cabinets.

She used the large vine stencil at the fascia board and then the smaller design on each of the doors, flipping and mirroring the design on each door.

I love the country finish she used for the cabinets, but she didn’t mention how she did it. Either way, it was quite an upgrade to those cabinets. Great job Pam!

Plaster stencils aren’t just for interiors, and I’m often asked “can you use them outside?”. Sure! There’s no reason why not. The surprising thing is that you can even use plaster stencils with common joint compound outside! Simply make sure you seal the design with exterior paint.

When I wanted to sell my home in the high mountains of Northern Idaho, I knew I absolutely had to do something with those ugly exterior doors!

They’d become weathered and lost all their finish years before. They weren’t in great shape when we bought the home and after using it as a vacation home for 9 years, they were even worse!

Door Before sml

The harsh weather had created deep cracks in the wood. So since I’m the queen of plaster, I simply filled those cracks with joint compound to create a smooth surface again then sanded the doors. Sure, I could have used wood putty, but I knew they were going to get high quality exterior paint that would finally protect them. 

I plastered the design using joint compound on to the base of each door, painted the entire door with a custom green/blue (to match the beautiful forest!) and then painted just the design with metallic pewter paint to give it a bit of “glam”. What a huge difference!

I love how the design came out.

Cathy Higgins lives in a lovely home. But she felt her entry way stair case needed to be more glamorous. Like something one might see in a stately home in the deep south.

Plaster Molds to the rescue!

Once Cathy found our website and happened on our line of plaster molds, the inspiration struck her to use one of these beautiful designs to add more detail to her staircases. 

Cathy chose our Left and Right Scroll Molds Set.  Since the mold is re-usable, Cathy was able to cast as many pieces as she need for each stair level.

When the pieces were dry, she painted them the same color as the staircase and then attached them by spreading joint compound over the back side of the piece and holding it in place for just 60 seconds.

She was so elated with the front staircase, that she decided to do the back staircase to match!

We’ve always thought of plaster molds for doing funky little craft projects. But they can be used on walls, ceilings and furniture to create such beauty and detail. Where in your home might you use a plaster mold to add beauty?
