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!
