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.

HALL TABLE - Chinese Rose 1-1 logo

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!

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.

Michelle Cavanaugh decided to give this old curio cabinet a new, updated look with silver paint and our Raised Plaster Parkland Posey Stencil.

She first added the raised stencil to the upper sides of the cabinet then painted the entire cabinet with silver paint.

The raised design gave it even more decorative appeal. I love the elegance this piece now has and obviously, Michelle is very proud of it. I can see why!

The question “can you use plaster stencils with paint?” comes up all the time. The answer is Absolutely! We use our plaster stencils with paint regularly. What you will simply find is that our plaster stencils will be the most durable, high quality painting stencils you have ever owned!

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.

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

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 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!

Plaster stenciled chest

Chrystal Every Thomas found our plaster stencils and went to town on her Craigslist furniture finds.

OK, I’m deeply impressed!

Chrystal found this chest on Craigslist and gave it a make over using our Raised Plaster Marcelle Border Stencil.  She shows us how the full border can be used across the fronts of the drawers and then how a portion of the design can be taped off (to create a smaller design) and used in the corners of the doors. This is a truly “designer” look and Chrystal obviously is a “designer” in her own right.

stenciled_table_2

Using the same plaster stencil design, she did a make over on this cute little table as well.

She used the design in just one corner, pre-tinting the medium pink. Now how precious is that????

Thank you Chrystal! We are officially “in love”!

chair-before-5

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.

plaster-stenciling-chair-5

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.

remove_stencil_5

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.

resin-appliques-5

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.

seat_wood_5

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

stencil_fabric_525

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!

chair_done_5

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!

stenciled-cabinet-mary-crawford

Mary Ellen Crawford loves a new project and this one was a doozie!

She started with an old side board and saw the potential in what it “could be”.

stenciled-cabinet-mary-crawford

She removed the handles and knobs then gave it a coat of cream colored paint, using a brown glaze over the top to add depth to the detail.

stencil-mary-crawford

She then used our Raised Plaster Breckenridge Frieze Stencil on the doors to create a raised design that appears hand carved. 

Suddenly, this quite large piece of furniture turned in to a large “high end” piece of furniture!

Fabulous job Mary Ellen and thank you so  much for sharing!

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!

Stenciled_Cabinet_After-400

Laurel Duval, (being the creative soul she is), had an itch to do a furniture makeover. This plain cabinet screamed for something fun!

Stenciled_Cabinet_Before

Laurel decided to do a Raised Plaster Stencil on the cabinet to change that flat surface in to a detailed one and to add dimensional design for interest.

Stenciled_Cabinet_After

She chose our Raised Plaster French Panel Stencil and I love how she used it! The truly interesting thing is that she centered it over the opening between the two doors! So when you open one side of the cabinet, one half of the design stays closed! Now how clever it that????
