Stenciled Floral Chair

By: Heidi Borchers of Inspired at Home

Add a textured stencil design to your furniture depending on your home décor, with this project from Heidi Borchers of Inspired at Home. This pink rose stenciled design of this chair creates the look of an English cottage when paired with oversize gingham prints.
 

Stenciled Floral Chair
 

Materials:

  • Stencil – large floral design
  • Stencil spray adhesive or blue painters masking tape
  • Texture Magic™ - light pink, light green, white
  • Palette knife
  • Paint palette (waxed paper or paper plate)
  • Acrylic paint - light pink, medium pink, leaf green, light olive green, lavender
  • Cosmetic sponges


Instructions
:

  1. Spray adhesive onto back of stencil according to label directions. If desired, mask off the immediate area around pink rose to keep texture paste from leaf area. Place stencil on surface of chair (or other home dec item).
     
  2. Squeeze pink texture paste directly from tube over rose design on stencil. Use palette knife to smooth out paste to desired thickness and texture. If you have placed tape over leaf area, remove tape and apply green texture paste to leaf and stem areas. Repeat with white texture paste for small floral areas. Carefully lift stencil straight up to reveal textured design. Let dry overnight.
     
  3. To add shading and highlighting to rose design, re-lay stencil over textured design. Pour small puddle of light pink and medium pink acrylic paint on palette. Dab flat end of cosmetic sponge into medium pink and remove excess by tapping sponge onto clean area of palette. This will distribute the paint evenly. Gently tap, tap, tap the paint around the edges of the petals of the rose. Please note that this process uses very little paint and should create an air-brush effect. Repeat process to bring highlights of light pink to center of rose. You may lift stencil between colors to peek and determine if more color is needed.
     
  4. Repeat painting process with leaves, stems and lilacs. Remove stencil and let paint dry.
     

Heidi’s Designer Tip: As you gain confidence and skill in your texture stenciling, you can add acrylic paint to tint the texture paste and stencil with multiple colors of texture paste to create a marbleized and shading and highlighting effects rather than overpainting with acrylic paint. This way, you can speed up the process to create your design and color all in one step.
