Another Upcycling Tuesday.. Well just don't sit there, applaud!
My middle son loves two things, Pirates and Starwars. There can never be enough of either in our household so after seeing this beauty from Miriam I knew he would just LOVE it for years.
original source off pintrest (who doesn't love that site?!) I read and admired that dresser but I wasn't going to pay $100+ for the decal needed to do this type of reverse stenciling. To me that just was not thrifty enough to justify buying it.
My first step was to find the dresser and lucky for us there is normally a yard sale or two each weekend here, so we ended up getting this.....
Next I had to figure out how in the world was I going to do a reverse stencil. After some thinking I decided to paint on paint my stencil and what was going to help me do it?
Frog tape. This stuff is amazing when it comes to making stripes or not wanting paint to bleed over.
Getting started I lightly sanded it then filled the handle holes in 4 of the drawers (sorry no picture). I primed it with Kilz and then painted it with a semi glossy white paint.
