Stencilled Bar Stool


Last weekend, I got the chance to work with my super fun stencil kit from Cutting Edge Stencils. It did not disappoint! I gave my barstools a 10-minute mini makeover with BIG impact!

This was my stencil. I ended up doing a reverse design...and didn't treat it as an all-over stencil. I only used the foam roller...I didn't even need the brush. 

These were the befores of the bar stools. They were fine...but the finish on them left them difficult to keep clean. I was excited that the stencil would help change up the finish and make them easier to keep clean.

I taped my stencil to the chair with painter's tape.

I simply rolled on white acrylic paint. It couldn't have been easier. No seeping, so crooked lines...perfection!


Come back Sunday night to our Mop It Up Monday party to find out how to win a $50 gift certificate to Cutting Edge Stencils.
