I started with a headboard is in serious bad shape.

This is disgusting!

Redeeming feature is that they have REAL wood

I know we can work with it!

The division is in the shape comparison. Thankfully they are cheaper at yard sales.

I built tanks from scrap wood from the garage … and spare cake.

I spent a lot of time sanding it down.

I’m too cheap to buy a stencil $40-50 for a project I’ll use one …

so I improve and make my own.

I inserted my thick plastic right into my cameo silhouette.

Once I adjusted quatrefoil background I want … I have guests “cut” it.

This plastic is too thick to have cameo cut it out though.

It was noted the line though … and that’s what I want!

Then I spent hours cutting it out.

Yes, it’s slow … but my son and I heard some of the Hobbit on CD,

so that is fun.

I always put an x on the inside, where I’m cut … sometimes,

you (okay, me) is very close to something and you take and began to cut the wrong parts!

Finally finished!

When there is no spare time … I measure the surface of everything to

stencil and mark the small x in the center.

Then I lined up my stencil and start in the middle.

Here are the secrets … repositionable spray.

Keep it in place while you work!

I use a slightly off-white paint Paris that I sat around and a stipple brush

One you do stenciling … you wait until the paint is completely dried before pressing it down again and paint the next section.

But it worked pretty well, because I had a lot of surface needs to be painted … so I just walked around until all central is painted and then be the first ready for part 2 and so on.

At first I was not going to either side of the bed stencil… Besides, I have run out of white paint! But it needs it, so I got out some acrylic paint and did it.

Not a perfect paint match, but close enough. Well, they still looked boring to me, so I edged them in aqua blue and let dry overnight.

Oh, ya, painted inside drawers too! And used up all my aqua paint as well!

The next day is the fun!


I used black walnut stain. I want it up … so I painted it on with a

Paintbrush and then rub off the excess with a rag old.

Repeated on all surfaces. I love how it makes the stencil turned out!

Give it a rich look!

When dye was made … the buttons and knobs need to be replaced.

I had a ton of random buttons I got at a yard sale … any match.

and they were booked.

I just sprayed all brass and copper they fit perfectly now!

See how they work perfectly with the color of wood?

And here is a picture of the product series has been completed!
