Hi everyone, Denise from Salvaged Inspirations here!
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.
