One of the “haute-est” looks going is fab mid-century modern furniture transformations. Nothing beats the clean architectural details and aesthetic — and the look can be enhanced by using stencils from Royal Design Studio. The recent floral stencil patterns added to the Allover Modern Stencils Collection have a global modern feel and when our friend Danielle from the lovely Finding Silver Pennies blog expressed interest in them, we knew they would be perfect for her mid-century dresser.
This was the sad state of her dresser prior to painting and stenciling. She started by using Pure White Chalk Paint® for the body and Provence Chalk Paint® for the dresser drawers. Nice, right? Love that combination! After much thought, Danielle decided upon the Adana Abstract Floral Furniture Stencil, which is a smaller size than the larger wall stencil and yet perfectly sized for furniture projects. Using a stencil brush, she stenciled in the pattern with our Pearl Oyster Stencil Creme Paint to give it a little oomph and a lot of shimmer. Perfection!
To get the look, Danielle suggests starting your design at the center of your surface and working out from there. Since the stencil creme paints dry quickly, she was able to keep stenciling easily with hardly any wait time. To finalize the new look of her dresser, she switched out the brass pulls for glass bubble knobs with a chrome base. Danielle shares the full details on her stenciled dresser how-to.
We were tickled pink that Danielle named her piece Adana, after our stencil. How sweet is that? Now tell us, don’t you think this is an amazing before and after? It’s a perfect mix of color, furniture lines and stencil pattern – thank you, Danielle! If you’d like a similar look, you can choose your favorite Chalk Paint® color, take a look at our Furniture Stencils Collection and find the perfect mix for that piece you’ve had your eye on redoing.
