I recently shared a coffee table that I made new again. Part of that creation was this fun stenciled top that I added to it.
I wanted something unique that would fit in with our farming/ranching community.
My first step was to pain the piece with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint for a clean fresh canvas.
I was done in 5 steps:
Step 1: Create a Stencil. I cut my design out on card stock.
Step 2: Trace it out in Pencil. I traced in pencil to avoid mistakes.
Step 3: Trace over the pencil lettering with a sharpie. This helped to avoid any ragged edges as well as bleeding from the pencil as I was painting.
Once I was done I finished the project by using Annie Sloan wax and then going over it with dark wax.
After both sets of wax we're cured I sanded the top with a low grit paper to truly make the piece unique with lots of imperfections to show the grain of the paint that I had added when painting the piece.
Thanks for stopping by! Make it a great week.Pin It
