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!
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!
Mindy Everaert loves the look of exposed brick as found on country farms and on Mediterranean buildings.
So she used our Raised Plaster Stacked Stone Stencil to give her home that same look!
I love her placement and how she did it.
Being a smart little decorator, she kept the stones in more soft, muted color.
How might you do it too? That’s easy:
Thank you Mindy! It came out GREAT!
Darla Dawald has been a long time Victoria Larsen customer. I love it when she shares her creations with us. Who wouldn’t be inspired by her lovely work?
She shared these wonderful tables with us where she used our Plaster Lizard Texture Stencil on table tops. Wow, don’t they look high end?
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?
Joni McDonald is a creative little thing. Full of fun and lots of ideas. It even comes across in her emails to me.
Discovering plaster stencils has added to her creative side by giving her yet one more medium with which to create.
She pondered, she plotted and planned, she calculated and experimented, and she finally came up with just the right solution for her new need to embellish. She used a plaster stencil on her metal mailbox! Now what a novel idea and Joni is just the gal to come up with it.
Giving it a pretty patina paint finish, she then added the plaster stencil and painted it copper gold. Lovely isn’t it? Now, just imagine the oohs and aaahs coming from her mailman (or lady) the next time they deliver the mail. Joni delivers them some “beauty and originality!”. Joni graciously let me share this adorable project with you and for that, we all thank her! (Bowing to your greatness Joni!)
