When it comes to wood icing and a beautiful Royal Design Studio stencil, Debbie never falls short of imagination and creativity. Here are a few beautiful projects from her blog that could not wait to be shared! Let’s take a look.
Picture Perfect Stone Effect
A gorgeous stone effect is just one of the several looks wood icing can give your projects. Debbie turned this ordinary frame into an extraordinary work of art in 4 easy steps using our Peacock Fancy Stencil . Her blog post Getting Stone Effect Using Wood Icing gives a step-by-step tutorial.
A Dandy Dough Bowl
Debbie has a knack for up-cycling old, previously unused things and transforming them into something beautiful! For this project she scouted an old dough bowl from her attic that desperately needed some paint and pattern love. By using our French Numbers Typography Stencil, wood icing and Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint she gave it a brand new look! Learn more about this easy breezy project on her DIY blog post An Old Dough Bowl Gets Gorgeous.
Get Floored by This Door
A beautiful Royal Design Studio Stencil like the Stargazer Medallion Christmas Stencil, wood icing and some Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® is all you need to brighten up plain and boring cabinet doors. Learn how in A Lovely Fabric-like Cabinet Finish tutorial.
‘L’ace an Industrial Look
Are you a fan of both, the industrial look as well as lace at the same time? Well, so is Debbie! In 6 easy steps she created this lovely Industrial Lace Canvas Wall Art with a metal-like finish to adorn her dresser. She used our Fleur de Lace Stencil with wood icing and simply layered the pattern with silver leaf and Licorice Furniture Glaze. Voila! An art piece that is both graceful and bold at the same time. Check out our Lace Stencils Collection to find several lace designs and sizes to suit your specific project needs.
Served Up With Pattern
Debbie loves to experiment and loves everything verre eglomise. Her Glamorize Your Table Top with Verre Eglomise DIY tutorial on P+P is one of our favorites! When it came to trying out wood icing on glass, she ended up using it with our one-time use Modello Stencils. She finished with a layer of furniture glaze to give the raised pattern a beautiful wooden look. Find a quick three-step tutorial on how to create this Gorgeous Lacy-Wood Look Glass Tray on her blog.
An Antique Look for your Book
If you like the look of old books, this DIY is for you. Debbie shows how you can transform your favorite read into an antique keepsake in How to Create a Gorgeous Antique-Looking Book. For this project Debbie used our Moorish Fleur de Lis Moroccan Stencil, Antique Gold Stencil Crème, gold leaf and Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®. You can also pick any pattern and color of your choice from our Moroccan Stencil Collection and Royal Stencil Cremes’ Collection.
