Walls Stencils, Plaster Stencils, Painting Stencils, Plaster Molds

Huge selection of classic stencils for elegant home decor.

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!

Calle’s ReDesign Furniture has discovered our Raised Plaster Stencils! This gal is amazing when it comes to re-designing old furniture and giving it new life. The colors she uses, the placement of the designs and her awesome finishes make her pieces one of a kind.
On this piece, she used our Raised Plaster Chantal Frieze Stencil on the front. She flipped and repeated it for a mirrored image (and to create a larger design) then used just a portion of the stencil design in the very center of the repeat.

table_before

We’ve all had worn furniture in our lives that we probably left behind or disposed of in some way or another. But Barbara is my kind of gal. A “Rescue Artist”!

This poor little occasional table really needed help. And Barbara was just the gal to give it new life!

She started by painting the top black and then using our Raised Plaster Brassio Frieze Stencil with just metallic paint over the top made it super elegant and just so darned sweet! A coat of light colored paint at the rim of the top, pedistal and legs gave it an awesome new look. Notice how she painted the tips of the legs black? That gives it a coordinated look that is quite smart!

Any of our plaster stencils can be used with paint rather than dimensional products. You’ll just find it to be the most durable, high quality paint stencil you’ve 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!

Any old piece of furniture can be given a brand new life with paint and stencils.

I purchased this old cabinet at the thrift store for under $10.00 and it sat in my garage for two years waiting for the perfect stencil design.

cabinet_before

It was in great shape, but it was really ugly!

So I gave it a light sanding, a coat of primer and then painting it with Behr’s Billowy Clouds gray paint.

I used our Raised Plaster Douceur Frieze Stencil. I wanted to do a random wallpaper effect over the top and sides.

Simply tape the stencil in place.

Then using light pressure, dip your stencil brush in to darker gray paint, wipe off the excess and swirl the bristles over the stencil openings.

Turning the stencil each time you repeat it, gives that pretty random effect.

stenciled_cabinet

I painted the cabinet trim, the same darker gray paint to match then used the same stencil with joint compound to create a raised design on the cabinet door front. I added black paint to the joint compound to pre-color it.

plaster_stencil_furniture

Simply use a plastic scraper, or even a credit card to smooth the compound over the stencil openings.

peel_back_stencil

Gently un-tape the stencil and peel it back to reveal the raised design. Now, let it dry completely.

I added a cute new handle that I got from Hobby Lobby, moving it to the upper edge of the door for more convenience. Now it’s an adorable storage unit that I will put in my work room!

I’ve been working with Chris Rees with ideas and instruction for adding a plaster bamboo design to her dining room wall for quite awhile. That’s not always easy when you’re trying to do it through just written word, but Chris is an apt student and found exactly what would work for her.

As we wrote one another, I had no clue that this gal was so creative until I began getting her pictures.

She opted for a linen look finish on the wall as a background to her Raised Plaster Bamboo. Streaks of gray made it the perfect backdrop.

Using our Raised Plaster Freestyle Bamboo stencil, Chris began constructing an entire wall of luscious, life sized bamboo.

Pre-tinting the joint compound gray helped to give the bamboo color. She then used metallic silver paint over every branch and stalk to create the most upscale, elegant wall!

Her leaf sconces were the final touch that made that wall come together beautifully! When her sweet Mother came to visit, her one phrase was: “It’s magical”! Chris was elated. And “magical”, it is indeed.

But was she done? Heck no!!!! She found a cute little corner table and saw the possibilities. Boy, did it need help! But Chris was just the gal to give it new life.

A good sanding was the first order of business.

corner_table_2

A fresh paint finish with a new handle took the piece in the right direction. A raised plaster bamboo sprig on the door, surrounded by a black painted frame made this table a one of a kind treasure! Notice how the background finish behind the bamboo design is metallic? Brilliant!

More of Chris’s projects will be featured soon. Wait until you see the tea tray turned bathroom sink! Wow!

 

 

table-before

I kept seeing this broken round table at a dump site and finally wound up putting it in my jeep and hauling it home.

One of the legs was broken so I glued it back together with wood glue and clamps and by the next day, it was good as new.

Apply_Furniture_Stencil

After a good sanding with my handy electric palm sander, I decided to embellish it with plaster stenciling. Using wood putty instead of joint compound creates a rock hard design that will stand abuse.

Repeated_Furniture_Stencil

I repeated the design all the way around the table.

Painting-plaster-stenciling

After painting the entire table black, I began by painting the raised design with gold acrylic paint.

Now the top needed something special as well so I used our Raised Plaster Astana Medallion Stencil with acrylic paints instead of joint compound to create a medallion on the top of the table.

Now it was a fabulous addition to my home.
