Furniture Stenciling: French Menu Lettering Stencil


While we love the flexibility of dining tables with leaves, the leaves themselves,however, always pose a dilemma... you see, we typically only use our leaves during the holidays.
This means that while the tabletop is being used and abused, the leaves are stored away, staying pristine...and when we drag them out to use, they TOTALLY: a) don't match b) make us realize how much wear our tabletop has sustained throughout the year! Problem solved! We simply paint and stencil the leaves to coordinate, but not match, the tabletop. This allows us to pick up a fun accent color that we might not want for every day use and get a little creative with our painted furniture!
When we want to get creative, we immediately pull out my paint and formulate a plan...a plan that always includes a fabulous stencil design from Royal Design Studio. Royal Design Studio Stencils and products seriously changed the way we think about stencils.

    I love the color of both the table and the chairs. I am wondering:

    1) What glaze or antiquing method did you use for the table AND chairs.
    2) what color did you paint the chairs?

    thanks so very much. great job!

    I want to have the kids own handwriting on my kitchen table. How can I get it there? Any ideas?

      You can either let them write right onto the table, or have them right on paper then decoupage the paper onto the table. I wanted to cover our kitchen island (formerly a pedestal dining table) with a French recipe, but I wanted an "imperfect" looking font...finally found one based on Cezanne's actual handwriting! I typed up the recipe in Publisher on a poster size (4'x6'), had it printed out, and decoupaged it to the top of the table. Voila! L-O-V-E it!!! (This is a pic before the final protective poly is applied.)
