I am tickled pink to be participating in the January DIY Furniture Girls blog hop where a group of us bloggers come together once a month and update a piece of furniture according to a pre-determined theme. This month’s theme is “Shades of White”. My project is updating a my new-to-me nightstand with some stenciled drawer fronts.
Just the other day I wrote about a small chest of drawers that I found for $18. I gave it a few coats of paint and now it’s my new nightstand.
The color is called French Vanilla and I love it!
But I thought it could use a little something to break up all of that French Vanilla. But just a little something.
How about some stenciled drawer fronts? What do you think?
I made a “roses” stencil, then stenciled the drawer fronts using white acrylic craft paint. I love how it looks with the rose drawer knob!
I looked for a stencil in the craft stores but was unable to find exactly what I was looking for. So I made my own. I have a Silhouette Cameo® and I’ve made many stencils (here, here, and here) in the past so I knew making a roses stencil wouldn’t be a problem.
I think it’s just the right of amount of “something” that this nightstand needed!

The stenciled front is the perfect touch for this piece. It looks great beside your bed. I like the storage that it offers as well. My nightstand is often littered with things and if I had drawers, I could hide some of it.

The perfect accent to a sweet piece. Great job making it shine!
Love the French Vanilla color and the roses really make it pop. Great job!!
Lindsay Eidahl says
This is a great side table. I love the stencil you chose. Those knobs are beautiful too!
Wendi @ H2OBungalow says
Jeanie, adding the stencil gave your piece the perfect finish! Love your nightstand too and that key hole adds so much character too. I’d bet you find lots of good items in your area!What a perfect find with all that storage space. Just love it!
Amy @ Highstyle Restyle says
The rose stencil really makes the drawer fronts have character! And those crystal knobs…perfection!
Christy@Confessions of a Serial Do-it-Yourselfer says
I love how you played off of the rosette knobs to create this stencil, it is just the perfect finishing touch this little table needed! XO
Marie, The Interior Frugalista says
Adding the pretty rose stencil was spot on – it’s perfect with those glass rose knobs! Impressed the heck out of me that you made your own stencil too.
The stencil was the perfect addition to this little table! So cute 🙂
Your stencil adds the perfect finish to the nightstand. It turned out beautifully. That’s smart to create your own stencil. So many times I have looked for a stencil and given up because there was nothing remade that I liked.
Karen Marie Kedzuch says
You added just the right amount of softness and bling to your $18 nightstand. I love the Silhouette Cameo too. Have you made many stencils? How did you like the process?
Jen @ Girl in the Garage says
The stencil and knobs are perfect together! Whenever I have time to open my Cameo and attempt to make a stencil, you might be hearing from me…. 🙂
The stenciling looks fabulous! I make stencils using contact paper, but never like this. You used a stencil blank?
Amy | Canary Street Crafts says
Such a cute makeover. Your rose stencil is beautiful and the knobs go perfectly.
Lucy @ Patina Paradise says
The white stencilling on the yellow is the perfect subtle addition. And it looks great in your bedroom!
What a beautiful color! Why haven’t I used French Vanilla? You’ve inspired me.
Nancy @ Artsy Chicks Rule says
I just love the added touch a simple stencil can give!!! So sweet! 🙂
Shanna Gilbert says
Such a sweet little table! I love the stencil you made!
Christy @ Our Southern Home says
I adore the color combination. Such a romantic looking piece!
I Love the color and the stencil. They both look even better in person!
I think this is a great idea to dramatically change the way a piece of furniture looks. Thank you for sharing this stencil idea with us. Pinning it because I have some furniture at home to stencil.
