Danielle of Finding Silver Pennies is a powerhouse of upcycled furniture projects, and everyone wants to know how she does it! Lucky for you, she’s sharing her tips and tricks in her new eBook On the Tip of My Paint Brush – Painted Furniture Techniques. In this 150+ page eBook, she gives you a closer look at painting furniture-with helpful tips for novice or advanced furniture painters. With 5 years of furniture painting experience and countless upcycle projects under her tool belt, Danielle is a trusted resource with all things furniture.
One must-have product she swears by for upcycling furniture is Royal Design Studio Stencils. She says, “Stenciling is a great way to add visual interest, especially to a flat fronted dresser or a piece of furniture that is a bit basic. If you’re worried about free handing a pattern or don’t feel confident in your artistic skills stencils are a great option! They are made out of thick flexible plastic that can be washed and used over and over again.”
Danielle’s very first stenciling project was on this dresser using the Adana Abstract Floral Furniture Stencil… and it looks phenomenal! She says, “This was my first attempt and after that I was hooked! Before I stenciled my first dresser I was quite nervous to do it, but they are sooooo easy to use.” Whether you’re new or a professional, you can use stencils to easily add pattern to furniture projects.
In Danielle’s eBook, she shares her secrets to creative furniture finishes. She answers questions such as:
- What paints she loves to use
- What tools she find helpful
- How to pick out a piece of furniture
- How to prep the piece for refinishing
- How to make the piece beautiful and unique
She also shares what stencil pattern to use, how to use the stencil, and where to position the stencil on the piece. She also shares her favorite complementary products to use along with stencils, like Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®, Royal Stencil Brushes, and Royal Stencil Cremes.
