Upcycling with stencils...



Supplies list

Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Graphite
Nicolette Tabram Cadiz stencil
Nicolette Tabram Whitstable stencil paint
Stencil brush
Polyvine Dead Flat varnish

Yay, stencilling is back, and I can totally recommend these contemporary stencils by Nicolette Tabram, check out her website  HERE for stencils, paint, workshops and plenty of inspiration.

First I painted my 'cheap as chips' wood effect table with 2 coats of Annie Sloan chalk paint in graphite.  Then used the stencil and stencil paint to completely cover the top of the table with pattern.  I practiced first on paper to get the correct placement of the design.

To protect from water splashes and scuffs, I finished with 2 thin coats of dead flat varnish.

Easy peasy, my table has taken pride of place in the bathroom and I'm looking around the house for my next upcycling project!
