Moroccan inspired chest of drawers #chalkpaint #stenciled

I bought this chest of drawers about six months and wanted to paint it in Napoleon Blue but after I painted one drawer, the colour didn’t seem to do the piece justice.  We’ve just come back from a trip to Morocco and I love Islamic architecture and design so I decided to print out a stencil on my Silhouette Cameo.

It’s painted with a mix of Greek Blue & English Yellow (colour is more green in natural light) and then stenciled with gold acrylic. I started one drawer with a spray paint for the stencil but it would not give me a seamless join, so I reverted back to the trusted brush method. I was very disappointed with Greek Blue when I bought it, so I’m pleased I have now found a use for it!

Please have a look around my lovely shop on Etsy where you can buy limited edition prints, camera accessories, notebooks and trays. Mapp of London came about through my love of photography – all the products are either my own photos or designed by me to fulfill my needs as a photographer. I hope you will agree with me that these are unique and lovingly crafted items.
