Judy Collier must have a large collection of Victoria Larsen stencils by now because she’s ordered from us many, many times.
In her latest project, she stenciled a large area rug with our Peony Passion Stencil to create a dramatic effect on the floor of her shop.
I love how it adds interest to an otherwise bland surface, but is the perfect addition to her paint line of products.
Stenciled in white paint over the gray rug was just perfect to bring out the beauty of the design.
As usual, Thank you Judy!
I abolutely LOVE what Janet did to her dining table! She obviously chose our Sweet Magnolia Stencil because it’s style mimics that beautiful area run under the table.
You can use a stencil design in the same way over the doors of large cabinets and drawers of dressers as well. So many ideas but the loveliness is always the same.
Thank you Janet!
The cool thing about this stencil is that all of the elements are separated which gives you the opportunity to create spot designs like this or fill an entire wall with a wallpaper effect. You get to have it your way!
Her placement creates a beautiful frame complete with flowers, leafy branches and flying birds. This ads sweet charm to this wall and I love the colors!
Oh how ugly it was! But the finished design and how I did it is here. You are going to love it as much as I do!
Deborah has been one of our customers for quite awhile and I truly believe the girl is as addicted to decorating as I am.
She then used the same stencil to add a raised border on her doors.
Deborah used our Raised Plaster Floral Medallion Stencil behind this elegant wall sconce and I fell in love!
I would love little more than a personal tour of this creative gal’s home. Thank you Deborah! You know I love everything you do!
I have never put my finger on quite “why”, but I LOVE black furniture in certain cases. Evidently, D does too!
She painted this chest midnight black and then added our Raised Plaster Lilac Love Stencil to it.
Here’s a tip for painting gold over plaster stenciling: Do the stenciling first, let it dry, paint the piece your intended color and THEN paint the design gold. If you try to paint metallic colors over dried joint compound, it will simply suck up all that beautiful gleam!
Like many of us, Ann loves the look of ornate antiques.
She used our Raised Plaster Chaumont panel on the doors of an old cabinet to give it incredible new life.
First, she did a translucent color wash over the entire door to give it a lighter appearance, but also to allow the wood grain to show through.
She then painted the inner panel a warm, rich brown.
Once that was dry, she added our Raised Plaster Chaumont Panel Stencil directly in the center of each cabinet door.
She succeeded in giving her project an “Old World” beauty that could be mistaken for a very old piece of furniture.
Thank you Ann! We love it!
Trying her hand at Raised Plaster Stenciling, Andrea Delaney wound up doing something subtle and wonderful.
She didn’t say exactly the steps she took to do it, but I do know she applied our
Raised Plaster Acanthus Flourish Stencil to the wall near her stained glass ceiling fixture.
The way I would re-create this look is to allow the plaster stenciled area to dry completely, then paint over the entire wall in her luscious warm brown color mixed with a little clear wall glaze.
When I came to the area of the stencil, I would then use a terry cloth towel and wipe off just the design to reveal a much lighter version of the design.
I love the simplistic approach of creating just one element here and there. But I also really love covering an entire wall in a random pattern, turning the design upside down with every other repeat to create further interest.
Thank you Andrea!
Barbara emailed me one day saying she had a lot of cigar boxes that were too good to throw away. She wanted to give them a face lift and create uses for them. So she set out to find a great design for the tops of those boxes.
She used our Raised Plaster Chantilly Floral Stencil over the top.
I love the bright color and the placement of the design. Barbara shows you that even larger stencils can be used on smaller projects by allowing excess portions of the design to simply be eliminated. I love the backgrounds she did on these boxes before plastering the raised design. Ah….but she went a step further. Look at what she did to the inside!
Each box used the same design but was done in different colors with different backgrounds.
What great creativity and how much fun she must have had doing these wonderful boxes. Think of all the uses for trinkets, jewelry, candies, etc!
Thank you Barbara!
I absolutely love the various ideas creative types like D. Starns come up with when using our stencils.
Examine this photo closely. Where I use a palet knife on it’s side to add deep black, horizontal striations to my Raised Plaster Aspen Trees, she used a paint brush and added very pale striations in soft brown paint that could have been diluted with clear wall glaze.
She then used metallic gold paint on her leaves. Done over gray walls really makes this design stand out beautifully! I only wish she would have sent a photo of the entire wall.
Very creative, very beautiful! She totally rocked this!
