Anne used our Raised Plaster Traditional Cabinet Stencil with ordinary paint to add such a luscious design to the front of her cabinet. I love how it looks! She added such ornamental beauty to the two plain panels.
The cool thing about this design is that it repeats easily with tiny flowers, bells and pearls to create a very intricate pattern. It’s perfect for this piece because of the ornamentals already present.
After letting that dry, she then painted the entire chest with the most beautiful and cheery blue paint.
Not only did she extend the life of this wonderful wood piece, she gave it such style and class!
Raised plaster stencils help you add design to your furniture pieces and cabinets easily! Just tape the stencil to the intended area, smear the openings with pre-mixed joint compound, gently peel back the stencil and let it dry.
When you paint over the applied design, it protects it from chipping off. No need to seal further unless you are sealing the entire piece.
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!
Irida Kyriakopoulou had a worn chest that she wanted to give new life to. It indeed needed some attention. And what a wonderful job she did!
Giving it a new paint color and then sanding back to make it look more antiqued, she then applied our Raised Plaster Romantique Stencil over the cabinet doors. Because of it’s shape and size, this stencil is just perfect for furniture make over projects. Tape off smaller elements of the design for application to drawers if you like.
With one applied to each door, this stencil gave the cabinet such a beautiful new look.
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.
Look how lovely and ultra detailed the surface came out!
In her email, she lists exactly what she did for you:
I wanted to share the completed end tables with the VL Crocodile stencil with raised plaster, with you.
I used Snow White general finishes paint on body, then I painted the top in a dark gray. Tinted the plaster with black acrylic paint to make it dark gray. Applied the stencil 3 times across the center then taped off sections to complete the raised plaster stencil on top and bottom 6 times. It took some time but I’m happy with the result.
I then used the modern masters metallics in platinum with glaze. After it dried I used the silver tinted slightly with black as a glaze to achieve the depth. I poly sealed it in satin General Finishes with 4 clear coats on the top only. The General Finishes chalk paint on the body doesn’t require waxing or seal (which I love).
Just listed them for sale.
Feel free to use my photos.
Darla’s techniques can be used on any piece of furniture or even to create a high end looking accent wall in a powder room. I love how it came out! Don’t you?
I love how she chose to leave the arched front drawer in natural wood while painting the rest of the buffet black. She plastered the design then used copper leaf over the design to not only add bling, but to add a metallic element to the buffet.
Julie certainly has an eye for design and I have loved every peice she has sent us!
