IF YOU’VE EVER BEEN DISAPPOINTED WITH A SLOPPY STENCIL DESIGN ON YOUR FRESHLY PAINTED PROJECT, YOU’RE GOING TO LOVE TODAY’S LAVENDER FIELDS MAKEOVER!
If you’ve ever been disappointed with a sloppy stencil design on your freshly painted project, you’re going to love today’s makeover! Have you heard of Adhesive Silk Screen Stencils for furniture? Until a few days ago, me neither!
But these are a game changer, my friends! No more paint seeping under the stencil because of an overloaded brush or uneven paint distribution…
But hey, I’m excited and getting ahead of myself. 🙂 Here’s what I started with.
I’m calling this my ‘Lavender Fields Secret Garden Makeover’ because it REALLY reminds me of the 100-year-old classic – The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. This was my Mum’s favorite book when she was a little girl. So, when I started reading books, she bought me my very own copy. I thought the story was sweet but I was more in love with the cover and illustrations. I guess I was a wannabe ar’tee’st even back then. 😉
Here’s the after… what do you think… Secret Garden worthy?

SILK SCREEN STENCILS::
Before I get into the How-To’s, a big thank you to ReDesign With Prima for providing the supplies for this project. Sometimes I have things sent to me that I’ve never even heard of – things I wouldn’t otherwise try. I feel super blessed and grateful I get to test new products and share them with YOU!
Here’s the Lavender Field Furniture Transfer along with the Silk Screen Stencil.
It’ also came with Icing Paste and an applicator. The applicator comes in a package with two sizes and the Icing Paste comes in a variety of finishes. I used the Gold to tie in with the gold in the furniture transfer.
To apply, I centered it on a drawer and it adheres really nicely. Then I took some Icing Paste and used the applicator to slide it on.
Once I covered the entire design, I pulled up the adhesive silk screen stencil and voila… crisp clean design! NO bleedthrough or uneven paint distribution.
To tie in the pattern and look to the rest of my vintage buffet, I whitewashed over the stencils and then burnished with a putty knife and distressed with sandpaper.
Here’s the finished look.
I hope you liked today’s makeover and as always, thanks for joining me… it means a lot. x
You may have noticed the last two weeks I’ve been publishing on a Tuesday. I’m going to try this for a while. Publishing on Monday mornings has been consuming my weekends with work. I miss spending time with my family and friends. I’m doing my best to find a balance… as I’m sure many of you are.
That said, I’d love to hear your thoughts on this new schedule and hope it’s convenient for you too. 🙂
LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK OF THIS LAVENDER FIELD BUFFET MAKEOVER… OR FEEL FREE TO ASK ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE… I ALWAYS LOVE HEARING FROM YOU.
Happy furniture painting my friends!
