We’；d like to introduce to you Helenpersonalized gifts for him for birthday， the clever crafter behind the blog Rick Rack Scissors.？ Helen scored an amazing deal on a mid-century modern dining room table and she was super excited to replace her old table.？ Rather than toss the old table， she decided to use it as a craft table for the kids.？ They left it in the kitchen so even though it wasn’；t functioning as a dining table， it was a very visible craft space.？ You could see the art table was well loved from the paint splashes and nicks.？ Helen decided to give it a fresh look and went on Pinterest for inspiration.？ She was inspired by the Paisley stenciled table on Domestic Imperfection.？ The first thing she did was sand off the old finish.？ Then she applied her stain over our Paisley Allover pattern using a cloth.？ Once the tabletop was stenciled， she applied a polyacrylic sealer and painted the legs a lovely shade of aqua.？ Helen had this to say about her project， “；Quite an improvement I’；d say!!”；？ We totally agree.？ We love the look of her new art table.
Next up we’；d like you to meet Frankie， the interior decorator and DIYer behind the blog The Brushed Bureau.？ Frankie purchased a vintage chest from an online auction but when she got the piece she realized it had many imperfections.？ She decided to freshen it up with a stencil.？ Frankie bought the Zamira Allover Stencil because she said she “；loves the Moroccan style of this lattice design.”；？ Then she used painters tape to hold the stencil in place and painted the pattern in white over the gray background.？ Frankie said，？ “；I am pleased with the finished piece…；. nice decorative storage addition to our dining room! I was able to achieve a beautiful updated chest and hide a few flaws too!”；？ That’；s awesome.
Looking for more stencil fun？
Thanks for reading， and happy stenciling!Michelle and the Cutting Edge Stencils Crew
All your Christmas Cats and Holiday Hounds can have their own sweet dreams of sugar plums (or jerky treats) in our ultra comfy pet bed. We?selected two cozy coordinates: a bright Christmas green and a rich leopard print. The design incorporates four bolster pillows sewn onto a flat base with a separate tufted pillow insert. We noodled on this one for quite awhile to come up with instructions that yielded a cool finished design that was also easy to assemble. So although any three-dimensional project is a bit more complex than a flat item, this cozy pet bed is something we know you can do!?
We love to do exchanges, support our team and do fun things that keep us creating.??In 2018? we want to push our dear Creative Crew into new creative adventures. We want them to push their limits, try new things and evolve their creativity. We decided to create a serie of out of the box challenges that we call “Good for the Creative Soul”.? We have figured out 1 special challenge each month.
