I can not paint! I am no artist! So, I cheat…I stencil. Here are some of the things I have stencilled.
This is one of those cheap 3-legged tables that you usually throw a clothe over to cover. I painted it white and stencilled this on top. The pics that follow are just close-ups of details.
The bottom picture was also stencilled on the risers of my steps inside, but I have had to paint over them. As a matter of fact, I thought I had more stencils in my house, but I have painted over them too. Stencils are the easy way to make something look better and to add personality to your room. Warning: some can be very time-consuming, depending on how big the project is.
You can find stencils at craft stores or online. There are 1000’s out there to choose from.
