How to Use Furniture Stencils

Have you ever thought of stenciling an ENTIRE piece of furniture? Have you been seeing those drop-dead-gorgeous furniture stenciling ideas on Pinterest and in decor magazines lately?

I’ve been admiring the pieces with bold contrast and strong design and I finally found the perfect piece to try it out with Prima ReDesign French Trellis pattern.

This buffet was bought off Craigslist over a year ago and has been in storage ever since.

The base color is Dixie Belle’s Coffee Bean. It’s a rich yet subtle black with dark brown espresso undertones. It’s been added to my-BEST-black-paint-list for sure… it’s right up there with DB Caviar.

Tips & Tricks:

Stenciling a dark color over a lighter color is easier than stenciling a light color over a dark color.

Mark out the center of the stencil and the center of the furniture. Line it up for your first stencil positioning – work outwards from there.

Lay the furniture flat on it’s back to stencil. I find this easier than stenciling while it’s upright.

Hey Linda! Great idea to use it with Aubergine! No Pain or VooDoo Gel Stain would be a great idea. Tobacco Road is an earthy brown water-based stain!

Make sure to buff the wax completely and allow to cure for 7 days!

Wow! The Big Mama’s Butta really brings that wood to life!
