Tony In The Red Living Studio: Stencil on Wood March 29 2016
Small Hall Table Makeover
Not allot of time around here to experiment but I have been wanting to add pattern to my projects by doing a stencil finish on wood.
This small table was the perfect size afternoon make-over. And as always, I've already got started and, squeezed in this before shot:
Here is Royal Design Studio's Stencil pattern Small Scrollallover (available in store at Red Living) - just seemed to be the right style for this table - I am picturing an urban modern country home.
And on the unfinished wood - Annie Sloan's Graphite Chalk Paint™ applied with a stencil brush. I love these stencils cause you measure once and let the cut out patterns on the edge guild you to match up the pattern - so easy.
After the paint is dry I used a fine sandpaper to "soften" the edges of the pattern and create more of a rustic look.
The base is Painted in Old White with a good amount of distressing to revile some wood under. Then a full coat of Soft Clear Wax then Soft Dark Wax in the joins, creases and grooves.
Simple - Project time 2 Hours. (excluding photo's and blogging .. add 5 minutes and get a berfore shot!)
Grateful for the creative time and thanks for letting me share it with you ..
Creative and Vintage Regards Tony @ Red Living
