What a beautiful makeover Amber did with our Raised Plaster Francais Border Stencil! Instead of using it horizontally, she used it vertically on this beautiful chest to create a raised design on those awesome doors.
Notice the beautiful, light beige she painted the chest first. It gives this piece and updated, more modern look but with the ornamentation of an antique piece.
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?
The stencil set includes the medallion stencil and a round plaster mold to create the inner medallion you see attached in the center.
With the stenciled medallion done in white and the plaster medallion painted the same color she painted the chest, the look is so elegant!
