Revamping my bedside cabinet with my first ever furniture #stencil #chalkpaint @AnnieSloanHome

Originally painted in Graphite and decoupaged with my fine art photography, I decided to change the drawers and try out a stencil that I designed using my Silhouette Cameo.  I painted the drawers with Old White and lightly distressed with silver paint.  The stencil is painted with Aubusson and I need to work on lining it up properly but on the whole, I’m fairly pleased with the result!

Plain wooden box painted & decoupaged with my fine art photography

I purchased a small, wooden trinket box and painted it with Annie Sloan graphite paint, topped off with dark wax and then decoupaged with my fine art photography.  It needs a bit of refining but I’ll do that next week!
