Transformation Tuesday: Using Stencils
This peice was found at Second Chance in Baltimore. It was in really good shape just needed to be cleaned up. First was sanding it down and panting it a clean white, I also stained the top and fronts of the drawers.
After that was all done I thought it needed something else. I wanted to use the same handles and since they were brass I decided to use my brass metallic paint to create my own stencil for the pattern.
I drew a pattern on a peice of cardboard and cut it out, after that I traced it on the sides of the dresser starting from the top.
Once that was done on both sides I traced the outline. Lastly I put lacquer on the stained parts and waxed the painted parts.
