Stenciled Dandelion Dresser and GIVEAWAY!

I was just thinking about buying a white dresser for my daughter, when my neighbors who were moving, asked us if we'd like this white dresser they were just going to get rid of. Crazy!


I did a Dandelion stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils. By the way, they have to most amazing selection of stencils to choose from. It's the best place for any DIY decorating stencils.


Cutting Edge Stencil is giving one lucky winner a stencil up to a value of $50! (Yes, that's fifty bones, ladies!  SCROLL DOWN for details.)


 Pin It



Dresser BEFORE:

What I used:
-Cutting Edge Dandelion Stencil in Large
-Cutting Edge paint roller and brush
-Painter's tape
-Acrylic paint in gray and light purple



Here is a video that is a super-duper help when learning how to do stenciling:


 1. You start by taping your stencil on with (preferrably the blue painter's tape, but mine was M.I.A) painter's tape. Cutting Edge also had a great suggestion to use adhesive spray on the back of the stencil. I totally did it and it made the process SO SIMPLE.


2. I used the Cutting Edge paint roller technique with their roller. I thought it worked perfect. I did the paint brush technique with the smaller dandelion seeds, and I also found that to work well for something small stencils..


3. After doing the gray, I decided this girlie dresser needed some girlie color! So I used the stencil again, overlapping the first dandelion slightly, with light purple.

 I put a few dandelion seeds up at the top corner of the dresser to make it seem like the seeds were floating away, carelessly.

  16. I love sooo many of the stencils, but I think I would probably use the Casablanca the most right now. And the Dandelion would be the next one I would get!

    Hugs, Tanya :)
