I’m SOOO excited to share this project with you today!! I was chosen for the FolkArt stencils campaign! I’ve ALWAYS loved working with FolkArt products, so when I was selected, I couldn’t be happier! Here’s all the goodies I received for this campaign!
I LOVED the Moroccan Tile stencil I got, so I was super excited about my project. I knew I wanted to stencil the folding up sewing table that my husband got me for Christmas last year (so sweet–I didn’t even ask for one, but I’m always complaining about how my back hurts when I sew on the floor, so he got this for me!! ).
I wish I had some sort of stencil adhesive because it would have come really handy with this very delicate stencil! I definitely got used to working with it towards the last 2 drawers, but the first one was a bit tough. I didn’t get it perfect, but I still love the way it came out! If you were looking for totally crisp lines, then I’d suggest using a stencil adhesive spray which they sell at almost any arts and crafts stores.
See the difference between the first and last drawer? I was a total pro by the end To match up the patterns with each drawer, I just held the last one up with the new one I was working with and aligned the stencil. Easy peasy!
For the drawer knobs, that just couldn’t be left black, I used the foam spouncer (I can’t live without these brushes, I use them for EVERYTHING), and a FolkArt paint (Aqua) that I had in my own paint collection. I loved the other colors that were sent to me, but I just loved the combination of these two colors!!
After it all dried thoroughly, I went over the whole project with Mod Podge (my other favorite thing I can’t live without!!) so the paint doesn’t chip/peel/scratch off, being that the table is made of a plastic laminate. So far so good!! And I LOVE my “new” sewing table!
