Margaret Tarkington knew exactly what she wanted to do on the exterior of her home and it had to be cheery and colorful! And what she did feels like it right out of a Bavarian village!
Using our Raised Plaster Art Deco Flower Border Stencil with just paint, she first painted the exterior trim with dark green paint then added the stencil design in lighter green for the body of the border and then brilliant red and yellow for the flowers.

All the windows and doorways were done in the same manner.

What I loved about this set of windows is that she decided to paint the frames between the panes of glass with the same lighter green she used in the border design. Set against that dark green background really made this set of windows come to life.

Keeping the stencil design above the doorway only allowed her the creative use of paint she’s done to create this welcoming entry. Picking up the lighter green again, and buttery yellow of the flower centers, she brightened up the doors to create a real focal point.
I honestly just wanted to get on bended knee and applaud her for this wonderful make over of the exterior of her home. It’s unusual, creative and so cheerful! Thank you for letting me share Margaret! You did a spectacular job!

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!

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!

Our front entries are always the first thing one sees from the street that stand out (or should).

Make your entry door something special with raised plaster stencils!

Here, I used our Raised Plaster Chaumont Panel Stencil to add detail and drama to the panels on the front door. 

Giving the raised design a light brushing of metallic gold paint made that door something truly elegant!

Now the front door also matches the interior doors since I did the same design on those as well.

See the project here.

Wall-Before-7

When I moved to New Mexico, there was an acre of vacant land next to me. But when it was sold and a family built their home just 10 feet from my fence, my privacy was a thing of the past.

Wall-Before-7

I put up a lattice wall thinking it would solve the problem of neighbors staring in to my once private back yard, but it wasn’t enough to cut off their view.

I purchased 12″ x 8′ boards from Home Depot and stained them with exterior stain to protect them from the elements.

I wanted a “natural” design so I chose the leafy branch portion of our Raised Plaster Aspen Tree Stencil. It was perfect to create pretty branches on my new wall.

silver_layer_7

I first used metallic silver paint to randomly stencil branches.

I then added more branches, (some overlapping the silver branches) with gold metallic paint.

Once they were attached to the fence not only did they afford more privacy, but created an out door art wall that I could add ornamental items to.

Cabinet Before

Oh how I hated this cabinet in the master bath of my home in Idaho. Layered barn wood, to me, is meant more for an out house!

The rest of my home was elegant so I just had to do something about this situation.

The thing was that the cabinets were well made of super great wood so I decided rather than to replace, them, simply “re-do” them.

Chipping_Barn_Wood_S

I removed all of the doors and drawers and went to work on the garage floor ripping the old wood out so I could cover them with a new, flat wood surface.

Oak_inserts_S

I used 1/4″ oak panels to replace the barn wood.

Stencil_with_roller_S

I painted the cabinet the same cream color of the walls, then painted all the doors and drawers a rich brown color. It was the perfect backdrop for metallic gold stenciling.  

I used a small roller to stencil our Elegance Wallpaper stencil on to the new surfaces.

Stenciled-cabinet-panel_S

It was the perfect design!

I loved the new cabinet, but it needed something in the center of the doors so I used our Ornate Round Plaster Mold to cast a plaster piece for the very center of the large door.

Cabinet Detail

The whole project came out so great that it made me want to do more make overs like this!

Michelle Flair was sick of the boring wall above the fireplace in her home.

When she found our Raised Plaster Stencils, her mind was in frenzy with new ideas.

Seeing our Raised Plaster Stacked Stone Stencil, she knew she’d hit on the perfect solution for her decorating tastes.

Michelle used common joint compound and our easy instructions for pre-tinting the compound to create a stone panel above and around the fireplace.

Her finished design looks absolutely amazing and so REAL! Now, looking at it, could you tell this wasn’t real stone? I couldn’t!

Here’s a helpful hint: When doing a project like this, do yourself a favor and using a level, mark level lines on either side then tape the line with painters tape. That way, your stone design will be level on both sides.

Thank you Michelle! It looks totally fabulous!

Handcrafted and re-purposed, re-finished items, are all the rage these days. Etsy, Artfire and Bonanza are known as great on-line market places to find them. But so are craft fairs, trade shows and galleries.

Some people are able to make a living at the craft and many use stencils to decorate their items.

Mike makes lazy-susans. He sells them at various shows and craft fairs and has done well with his creations. He was delighted when he used our Grapes Border Stencil to add grapes to this large lazy-susan.

I’ve created many “new” items from old ones using plaster stencils and molds. One example is this beautiful wooden box that I did with our Raised Plaster Bennington Frieze Stencil and a plaster molded piece.

Not only was it fun and rewarding, it was also profitable since I sold it for $45.00!

A few years ago, I found this awesome (but broken) table at the dump and hauled it home, re-doing it with plaster stencils and paint. That free item fetched $75.00.

So if you’re thinking about getting in to this very popular business, consider adding stencil designs to your items to create more interest and to fetch a higher price.

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.

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!
