Debbie Sharp is obviously a gal with vision and creativity.
When I opened her email and saw this beautiful version of our Raised Plaster Anastasia Stencil, I was just amazed at what that beautiful background did for our lovely plaster stencil design.
Here’s what she wrote in her email:
“I want to say thank you for the stencils that you create….I love the one I purchased…and the service was amazing. This is what I made from your stencil using venetian plaster and Amy Howard milk paint colors. I am a current student of Amy Howard’s Old World Finishing Course. I love how this came out!!! Beautiful stencil and I will be back for more as soon as I can”.
Debbie has obviously found her sources for true inspiration. The depth of the background, with it’s lights and darks against the raised design create a visual dimension that is just mesmerizing!
Thank you for sharing Debbie!
Deborah has been a long time customer that just keeps flooring me with her creative uses of my stencil designs.
She has such an enormous imagination and sometimes, that’s all you need besides the stencil design to create something completely unique and awe inspiring.
Using our Raised Plaster Francais Border Stencil, she used paint with the design in the center of this this cutsie headboard and then used the same blue paint to do a border and the posts.
Here, she used our Raised Plaster Palisades border stencil with pale gray paint to create a vertical border on her wall. Remember that any of our plaster stencils can also be used with any paint. You will simply find it to be the most high quality paint stencil you’ve ever owned.
You will see more of Deborah’s creations here in the future, and to be honest, I’m on pins and needles here! Thank you Deborah!
Dawn had it in her mind that she wanted stone around her fireplace instead of the simple tiles that were there originally, and by golly, she found a great way to do it with our Raised Plaster Stacked Stone Stencil
Dawn mixed her paint color right in to the joint compound she used for the stones. If you mix white glue with joint compound you can make it stick to anything including metal and slick tile.
To repeat the stone easily, simply plaster once, then flip the stencil over, line up the old stones with the stone openings, overlap slightly and plaster again.
I love the way it looks now. Certainly much more modern and inviting. Thank you Dawn!
I was just blown away when Colten sent me this photo of an old vanity dresser that was given new life.
Painting it soft cream, our Raised Plaster Parkland Posey Stencil was applied to the sides of the dresser then painted over with the same cream paint. The handles were removed from the lower drawers and gray diamonds were painted over the fronts to give an really cool design element.
All of the ornate ornamentation on this piece and the plaster design really popped out when gray glaze was applied over these areas and wiped off to remove the excess. This piece is now museum worth and how I would LOVE to have it in my all white bedroom!
Catherine is a pro and my gosh, I was blown away when she sent me a photo of this delicious armoire.
Catherine had a vision in her head: To create a beautiful interior to this lovely piece.
So she painted the inside a stunning lipstick red and then stenciled our Bamboo Wallpaper design inside with gold metallic paint.
Even the doors got this same treatment. So lovely!
Mark Yeda had a vision for his wall. He wanted something beautiful and unique to coordinate with his oriental statue.
He chose our Raised Plaster Palm Leaf Stencil to plaster a random, raised design on the focal wall.
The thing I absolutely love most is that he chose to keep the colors more subdued instead of making them bright. This give the wall a feeling of class and elegance. It’s easy on the eyes, yet adds such beautiful texture and interest.
I’m impressed Mark! Thank you so much for sharing!
Linda Dyson wanted to add some privacy to her patio area but she wanted to dress up how plain it was.
She asked me if she could use just paint with our Raised Plaster Stencil and I told her “Of course! You’ll just find it to be the most quality paint stencil you’ve ever owned!”.
With that, she chose our Raised Plaster Palm Tree Stencil and used it with paint to create a full tree on her privacy screen.
The contrast of the black palm tree against the softly colored screen was a great choice and turned out wildly beautiful!
Thank you Linda! You’ve inspired us all!
I had so much fun stenciling this cute table.
I found the base at a thrift store. It was in great shape and only cost $9.00 to purchase. I then added a solid wood top from Home Depot.
After a bit of sanding, a coat of primer, and a coat of black paint, I was ready to go!
I wanted the edge of the top to remain black, so I taped it off with painters tape.
I first found the center of the table by measuring in from both sides and making a mark to determine the center of the table. I lined up the center of our 8″ Fiore Tile Stencil over the pencil mark in the center of the table. I stenciled it with white acrylic paint.
I then lined up the outer elements of the stencil with the previous stenciled tile and repeated the design across and down the table. It was easy!
After a quick coat of satin polycrylic (which doesn’t yellow), I was done.
The finished table turned out absolutely adorable!
This is a great stencil for floors, back splashes and walls as well. It comes in 6, 8 and 10″ sizes for your particular needs.
