Stenciled Glazed Cupboard


This charity shop bought, glazed cupboard has been painted and covered in stenciled pattern to give it a bone inlay effect. Although the paint colour is bright, the addition of the pattern in a neutral colour softens the effect.

The cupboard is not made from beautiful solid wood, but is actually quite lightweight and was painted with a shiny mahogany coloured varnish, but the shape is lovely.

To begin with I applied two coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Florence, followed by a coat of Polyvine Decorators Varnish in Dead Flat Finish.

Using the Neemrana, Rajasthan and Pondicherry Border Stencils I added the pattern to the whole of the exterior.

Once the stencil pattern was complete I added another coat of varnish.

I originally intended to sell the cupboard, but it has found it's way into my hallway and has become filled with my collection of cookbooks, so I don't think this one is going to make it onto my website!

      Thank u all for replying. Some use painters tape to place stencils. Making sure to keep stencils clean before moving on to continue.

    curious to know why you use chalk paint in particular and not another paint.

      Oh I see. Nice! I imagine it’s nit as durable or washable as regular paint. So use it places that don’t need washing So often?

    I wondered the same thing. Why chalk paint, especially if using a dead flat varnish on top. I would think any flat or not shiny paint would do.

      I have not used it. Good to know. I wondered why I kept seeing it crop up. Thought it was just trendy or something. Didn't know it has special qualities. Thanks for the clarifications!
