Disclaimer: I just painted right on top of an ikea dresser. No prep or nothing. Do NOT do that. I mainly just wanted to show you all how it looks to paint furniture. Refer to this blogger for tips on painting furniture!
(I chose the large Rabat stencil)
Use a small sponge roller with a tiny amount of paint on it. The idea is more strokes of less paint! That prevents leaking!
Tape the stencil down from the top and bottom. That will help keep it flat!
They send a single “strip” of the stencil so you can fill in the holes on the ends.
The finished look!
What do you think? One day when I have a piece of furniture that needs a little *umph*, I will definitely stencil the top. It’s a cheap way to refresh old furniture too!
