Oak Lane Studio Folksy Bloom Table Project
Turn old into beautiful with Oak Lane Studio's Folksy Bloom Table Project! The Folksy Bloom Border Stencil is a bold floral Folk-Art pattern that will add a whimsical flair to any room. You can use this to embellish pillows, furniture, walls, floors, cabinets and even mirrors.
The table used in this tutorial was upcycled from a wooden pallet. You will also need the following:
Electric Sander (with sanding disk)
Flat white primer/paint
Start by sanding down the entire table. This will provide a suitable surface for the paint to stick to.
Next remove any risidual dust from the table.
Next, give the table a white basecoat using a primer/paint combination.
Once your base coat is dry, you are ready to place your folksy bloom stencil. Frog Tape works great to hold the stencil in place.
Shake each paint thoroughly before pouring out a small amount on a paper plate.
Swirl the brush in the paint to soak the bristles.
Remove excess paint from the brush using a stack of clean paper towels.
Apply the first color by lightly stippling the paint onto the table surface.
For additional help holding the stencil flat against the table surface, use Stencil Ease's Repositionable Spray Adhesive.
Repeat the above process for all other colors.
Finally, remove the stencil by taking one end and pulling straight up.
Your beautifully stenciled table is now complete! Visit www.oaklandstudio.com for more information.
