Say it with a Stencil!

Pattern and design can make a statement, set something apart, and make a statement. Sometimes all you need to revive a furniture piece is to "say with it a stencil"! These crafters each transformed these furniture pieces with some paint and a pretty stencil. Whether you are going for a modern, country, whimsical, or classic feel, a stencil can help you set the tone and turn a piece of furniture into a showpiece. Check out these great examples of stenciled showpieces:

DIY Honeycomb Side Table via Design, Dining Diapers You can even make your own stencil like this crafter. She used painter's tape to create a beautiful honeycomb design.

#PutaBirdOnIt shelf upcycle craft

"Put a Bird On It" Shelf via Club Chica Circle And for a bit of whimsy and country flair, the "Feathered Friends" stencil is the perfect solution.   Painting with stencils can be both fun and rewarding. To get a clean design, make sure to use a stencil brush with intricate designs, making sure to apply paint with your brush held at a 90 degree angle and with an up and down motion. Painter's tape to secure your stencils when working them can be key to preventing paint seeping underneath your design. Once you have tried painting with stencils, you will be hooked and the possibilities will be endless! Try a stencil on your next home decor project. Happy Crafting!
