Big Blue Beauty

This is my favorite piece ever! I'm sure I'll say that many more times as I continue painting furniture... but so far this is my favorite! I've been wanting to try something new. So, I picked up this package of stencils from Micheal's...

It sat around for a while until I found just the right project for it...

I've never stenciled before and in this case it was time consuming! The top of this dresser is big and my stencil was pretty small. I could only paint about a 6x6 section at a time then had to wait for it to dry before moving on...



It didn't always come out perfect. Here you can see I didn't line everything up well and overlapped some of the design. I wasn't too worried about that happening though, since I knew I'd be distressing the whole thing anyway...


It took 2 days , but I finally finished...


And here is the finished dresser...
