Fab Furniture Stenciling

It seems like everyone is painting and stenciling furniture these days. And why not? Furniture makes a great little canvas for stencil patterns and you can accent details like table tops, drawer fronts, door panels SO easily and quickly with stencils. The availability and popularity of the the amazing Annie Sloan Chalk Paintâ„¢ is inspiring people all over the country to scour thrift stores and flea markets for furniture pieces that can be transformed in a day with some creativity and a can of paint!

One of my friends who has caught the furniture painting bug bad good, is Debbie Hayes of Faux Design Studio. Debbie is a long-time decorative artist who has the MOST amazing studio in a converted fabric mill in Greensboro, NC. There she paints endlessly (it seems!), sells her one-of-a-kind furniture pieces and also teaches others how to do the same. Debbie has such an artful approach to using Chalk Paintâ„¢ and stencil patterns we were inspired to create this lovely graphic to showcase her work.

You can find all the details about the Royal Design Studio stencils and Chalk Paint colors Debbie used in this Fabulous Furniture Stencil post on our website. I hope it inspires YOU!

    Hi Melanie! Here at the studio on a holiday — painting furniture. Was a guest instructor last weekend at the Annie Sloan Tour in Leesburg and was able to spend some magical one-on-one time with Annie. She pointed out her favorite colors and looks as we toured Lucketts and Chartreuse. So here I am, changing the colors and the look of my studio! Of course, stencils will be involved!

    Happy Easter from NC!
