Julie McDowell and Dandelions and Poppies uses our Raised Plaster Antoinette Panel Stencil on the front of a chest of drawers to create an exciting new look.
I really love seeing all the different ideas and treatments people come up with when working with our
I really fell in love with what Marianne Meyer from Minneopolis, KS did on her walls.
On the second floor of her home, she did two beautiful aspen trees using just the thinner trunk and tons of branches. She then did a darker color wash of brown paint to give the design more depth.
Being a smart cooking and knowing you can use just parts of a stencil design to create something new, she used just the leafy and bare branch stencils to create a little vignette at the stair landing.
The amount of detail that was achieved was awesome and simply a use to many branches instead of just a few and again, using the color wash to bring out the beautiful detail.
But her true master piece was this plaster aspen tree that literally spans two floors. How awesome and incredible is that?
Just lovely Marianne, and thank you so much for sharing with us!
Deborah has been one of our customers for quite awhile and I truly believe the girl is as addicted to decorating as I am.
She then used the same stencil to add a raised border on her doors.
Deborah used our Raised Plaster Floral Medallion Stencil behind this elegant wall sconce and I fell in love!
I would love little more than a personal tour of this creative gal’s home. Thank you Deborah! You know I love everything you do!
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!
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!
What did two chatty chicks from https://2chattychicks.com do? They applied our Raised Plaster Pine branch and mold stencil design to a metal mail box, then filled it with fall silk flowers. What a cute idea even for spring time! Simply choose a floral design like our new Plaster Stencil Genesis Floral.
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!)
