What a beautiful makeover Amber did with our Raised Plaster Francais Border Stencil! Instead of using it horizontally, she used it vertically on this beautiful chest to create a raised design on those awesome doors.

Notice the beautiful, light beige she painted the chest first. It gives this piece and updated, more modern look but with the ornamentation of an antique piece.

Great job Amber!

We’ve all had worn furniture in our lives that we probably left behind or disposed of in some way or another. But Barbara is my kind of gal. A “Rescue Artist”!

This poor little occasional table really needed help. And Barbara was just the gal to give it new life!

She started by painting the top black and then using our Raised Plaster Brassio Frieze Stencil with just metallic paint over the top made it super elegant and just so darned sweet! A coat of light colored paint at the rim of the top, pedistal and legs gave it an awesome new look. Notice how she painted the tips of the legs black? That gives it a coordinated look that is quite smart!

Any of our plaster stencils can be used with paint rather than dimensional products. You’ll just find it to be the most durable, high quality paint stencil you’ve ever owned!

I found a cute little folding table for my patio at the thrift store. Just $4.00!

I took it home, cleaned it up and spray painted the top black.

I then added a spray pattern of gray/ blue.

Then patterns of metallic gold

After it was all dry, I taped the stencil in place at the edge of the table, allowing only part of the pattern to be visible on the edge of the table.

Tape_stencil

A 1/2″ stencil brush and black acrylic paint were used to add the stencil design to the table. For this project, I used our Raised Plaster Leaf Panel Stencil.

Remove the stencil, by gently peeling it back, to reveal the pretty new stencil design.

The black design against the muted colors of the top of the table making for a striking new look!

Give it a coat of exterior sealer for outdoor use.

It’s never ceased to amaze me how you can take a thrift store find and turn it in to something really awesome with just paint and a stencil design!

Now, it’s a part of my yard decor and is something I use regularly and just love!

Table-Before

It started out as a dump site find. Solid wood, round, with a single broken leg. Now, how could I resist? I hauled it home and surveyed the damage.

A little wood glue and clamps over night fixed the broken leg and I was ready to get started!

I gave it a good sanding with my electric palm sander and primed it top to bottom.

I then added raised plaster stenciling with wood putty to the sides of the top.

Once dry, I painted the entire table jet black and hand painted the raised designs with metallic gold craft paint.

Using our Raised Plaster Astana Medallion stencil with standard acrylic paints. Yes, you can certainly use any of our raised plaster stencils with just paint.

I centered the stencil on the round top and gave it a gorgeous design.

The table legs and trim also go a lick of gold metallic paint to finalize a beautiful make over of this table.

Now, it looks like a super expensive piece you might find in a specialty shop!

cabinet_stenciled

Any old piece of furniture can be given a brand new life with paint and stencils.

I purchased this old cabinet at the thrift store for under $10.00 and it sat in my garage for two years waiting for the perfect stencil design.

cabinet_before

It was in great shape, but it was really ugly!

So I gave it a light sanding, a coat of primer and then painting it with Behr’s Billowy Clouds gray paint.

I used our Raised Plaster Douceur Frieze Stencil. I wanted to do a random wallpaper effect over the top and sides.

Simply tape the stencil in place.

apply_stencil

Then using light pressure, dip your stencil brush in to darker gray paint, wipe off the excess and swirl the bristles over the stencil openings.

stenciling_furniture

Turning the stencil each time you repeat it, gives that pretty random effect.

stenciled_cabinet

I painted the cabinet trim, the same darker gray paint to match then used the same stencil with joint compound to create a raised design on the cabinet door front. I added black paint to the joint compound to pre-color it.

plaster_stencil_furniture

Simply use a plastic scraper, or even a credit card to smooth the compound over the stencil openings.

peel_back_stencil

Gently un-tape the stencil and peel it back to reveal the raised design. Now, let it dry completely.

I added a cute new handle that I got from Hobby Lobby, moving it to the upper edge of the door for more convenience. Now it’s an adorable storage unit that I will put in my work room!

Julie McDowell from the Furniture Painting University has a way of really adding a Wow factor to the furniture make overs she does.

Whether it’s decoupage, paint or faux finishes or stenciling, she creates furniture pieces that are unique and beautiful.

Here, she used our Raised Plaster Vine Medallion and Mold Stencil set to add beautiful medallions to the front of this chest.

plaster_stenciled_chest_staged

The stencil set includes the medallion stencil and a round plaster mold to create the inner medallion you see attached in the center.

plaster_stenciled_chest_close

With the stenciled medallion done in white and the plaster medallion painted the same color she painted the chest, the look is so elegant!

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.

Apply_Furniture_Stencil

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.

Repeated_Furniture_Stencil

I repeated the design all the way around the table.

Painting-plaster-stenciling

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.

Stenciled-table-cropped

Now it was a fabulous addition to my home.

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.

plaster-stenciled-cabinet-pam-findley

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 Stencil on chest

I love using plaster stencils on furniture! It’s one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done in my life and I’ve done a LOT of plaster stenciling since coming out with the very first line back in 2004.

My nephew, Guy Keesey hand built me this sweet little chest. I loved it from the moment he gave it to me. After coming out with my plaster stencils line, I searched my home for projects to do them on.

Plain Chest

This chest caught my eye and I knew it was the perfect start to what would become a complete passion for me!

I began by painting the chest dark brown then using our plaster stencils to create corner, center and border designs with joint compound.

I then sponge painted a lighter beige paint over the plain portions of the chest (to lighten the background a bit) and then painted over just the raised stencil design with black paint, blending the edges over the light sponging.

Plaster stenciled chest

I replaced the stencil over the design and very lighted swirled metallic gold paint over the design. I painted the legs black and added metallic gold paint as banding.

After a coat of satin varnish, it was complete and I love it!

The finished chest was a total hit in my home!
