Every so often I come across sheer awesomeness. I mean, between blog link parties and Pinterest, there’s a ton of cool stuff, isn’t there? But when I saw this dresser that was reverse stenciled, I went a little nuts. Ok, a little more nuts.
I came across the dresser on Better After, which is fun and awesome in it’s own right, due to Lindsey’s writing. Then I had to click over to Musings, Flor’s Blog on Design, to read how they took a dresser from Craigslist, slapped on a decal, painted over it, and then removed it to reveal . . . sheer awesomeness!
Now, I’d done a little reverse stenciling – mainly because I’ve had, um, issues with regular stencils. Sure, it’s one thing to do a lampshade, or a canvas, but it’s another thing altogether to tackle furniture.
Surprisingly I didn’t find too many pieces when I googled “reverse stencil furniture”. Other than Flor’s dresser.
And this cute little end table over at Shelterpop. They have a cool method to make the stencil (hint: painter’s tape), so you have to go check it out.
But if you have a Silhouette or Cricut, you could cut your own decals and go to town. Either on furniture or . . .
Hmmm, if mirrors look that good, how about plain ol’ glass?
StencilSearch shared this table that used a doily as a stencil on the glass shelves. They have some other great projects made with frosted glass spray paint that I think you’ll like too.
What was the last thing you came across that was awesome? How did you find it? Leave a comment and share, ok?
