Stenciled Dressing Table Vanity ~ #CuttingEdgeStencils!

sponsored post

I am on a stencil kick and I knew this dressing table vanity needed some extra details to make her have a whimsy feel.  

Stenciled Vanity -

She looks so pretty with all the extra details that the stencils provided.  I used the Budding Clematis 3 piece stencil kit from Cutting Edge Stencils.    I love this pattern and how it gave this vanity the extra glam.   You need to stop over to Cutting Edge Stencils and see all the great stencils they have.  It was very hard to choose just one.  

Stenciled Vanity - before

It’s hard to believe that this is the same dressing table.  This vanity was donated to me from my husband’s partner, thanks Steve!  This vanity had seen its better days and had a horrible black paint job.  

Stenciled Vanity - prep work

I had to sand this piece down a lot due to the major drip marks and filth that was left behind.  I ended up painting the inside draws to this piece because they were in horrible shape.  

Stenciled Vanity - stencil layout

I started by choosing 2 of the stencils in the 3 piece kit, and I also used one of the butterfly stencils.

Stenciled Vanity - using a brush technique

I used a lighter shade of the Creme de Menthe by Maison Blanche Paint Company.  I will share more on this paint when I post about the technique I used on the chair.  Let me just say, I LOVE this paint!

See how adorable the butterflies are!  I love the monochrome look of the paint and how the stencils added the perfect whimsy touch to the dressing table vanity.

    The chair detailing is so unique. I refurbished a set of four of these guys that go along with a metal topped table. I used the set in my dining nook up until a few years ago. Nicely done.
