I have had this empty chocolate box gathering dust in the studio for ages. Today it got a thirty minute makeover using the nearest stencils to hand.
I do not have a 'before' picture, just a 'during' and an 'after'.
The cardstock box was painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White and was decorated with Liquitex Gold Green acrylic paint from The Stencil Library. The repeating pattern stencil was GMT54, a gothic floral stencil which I never tire of using and is often the first that I pull from the drawer. It is a sturdy little design and I have reused it for so many small projects over the years.
Because I have been stencilling furniture for much of last week I had some border stencils left to tidy away so I put them to use again. The stencils were F17 Adam & Eve and F20 Double Key from our 'Stencils For Furniture' range.
A light misting of 3M SprayMount repositioning adhesive onto the back of the stencil held the border in position, it was anchored with a tab of low tack tape on either end. I started and completed the stencil on the seam of the lid in case the pattern match was not perfect.
