I can not paint! I am no artist! So, I cheat…I stencil. Here are some of the things I have stencilled.

I stencilled this above each shelf in my pantry. It keeps the pantry from looking so bare when I need to go to the store. lol

The ladder-back chairs in the breakfast room. The next picture is a close-up.

This is one of those cheap 3-legged tables that you usually throw a clothe over to cover. I painted it white and stencilled this on top. The pics that follow are just close-ups of details.



This is my backdoor. I have gotten a lot of compliments on my door. I showed close-ups of the stencils.

The bottom picture was also stencilled on the risers of my steps inside, but I have had to paint over them. As a matter of fact, I thought I had more stencils in my house, but I have painted over them too.  Stencils are the easy way to make something look better and to add personality to your room. Warning: some can be very time-consuming, depending on how big the project is.

You can find stencils at craft stores or online. There are 1000’s out there to choose from.

Hearing from you makes my day!
