I’m talking about my 2½year old granddaughter, Sofi.
I stenciled her little table and painted her chair….she doesn’t like change….unless it’s her idea.
I could be in big trouble.
white daisy table
Today is furniture theme day and the theme is “flowers”.
I bought the kid’s table months ago.
I don’t even remember where it came from.
The chair came from a local antique/flea market shop.
The table is in the Owen Workshop and Sofi uses it to paint her masterpieces.
The chair has been with her desk in the house.
She noticed the chair had been replaced with another but we were able to gloss over that and move on!
I selected a few stencils and a new can of Krylon White Gloss paint.
Paint goes a long way when stenciling so I poured a little paint on a paper plate then dipped the brush in the paint and wiped most of the paint off on a paper towel.
The secret to stenciling is a dry brush….read a complete tutorial by clicking here.
I planned to use different flower designs but after contemplating (big word) it for a while I decided just to use two different sizes of the same design.
I stenciled them on willy-nilly, no measuring or anything.
Chairs are not my favorite thing to paint so I usually try to give them a coat of spray paint before I brush on a coat of paint.
The spray paint gets into all the joints better.
I used the same white Krylon paint that I used for the stenciling.
The JTS got a hold of the camera.
There’s a reason I don’t post photos of myself working on projects in the workshop.
I distressed the chair and the green paint shows through a little.
I thought the original finish on the table would work well with the white flowers…and I was right
My first thought was to give the table an overall paint job in a bright color and stencil bright flowers all over it.
I’m really liking this look.
What about you?
Leave me a little note below then check out the “flower projects” on the links below.
I’m going to do that right now!
Let me know which is your favorite!
You only have to leave your name (first name is ok) and your email address, then your comment.
Your email address will not be shown on my blog.
Sofi & her table
Sofi likes her table.
I wasn’t there when she first saw the table but I’m told she put both hands over her mouth and said “I can’t believe it”….she’s not dramatic at all 🙂
She didn’t want me to take her picture so I had to sneak around to get this one.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week,
linking to these parties….
