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 have had this dresser for many many years, I painted pink and blue for my oldest daughter when she was small, years before I even knew I would be doing this now. We dragged it across the ocean when we moved from the UK to Canada and it has been many colours and even lived in the garage, all alone and forgotten. It is is now resplendent in Fusion Mineral Paint Ash and Brushed Steel. I used a stencil from my favourite stencil designer Victoria Larsen Stencils. I cannot bring myself to sell this piece, sentimental fool that I am!
The combination of the two gray colors is not only striking, but makes this piece so elegant!
The stencil design adds just the right amount of detail to this dresser. I can see why she doesn’t want to sell it!
Wouldn’t this also be an exquisite treatment for a focal wall?
