An Easy Project and a Giveaway

THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED

I want to welcome a new sponsor this month, istencils. Cheri offers a HUGE amount of stencils. She offered me my choice of stencils and here is what I did with one I chose.

Do you see it over there? I thought I would just add a little embellishment to a bread board.

I am not the best stenciler in the world by no means, but this really is a quick and easy project. 

I just taped it on the board with frog tape.

Then I painted on Annie Sloan chalk paint in Graphite.

Then because I did not want it new and perfect I sanded it to make it worn looking. You can see how the black kind of spread on the board, but that is okay.

Like I said I wanted it worn.

If you would like a chance to win some stencils then hop on over to my giveaway page here.

  7. I have been wanting some stencils and can't seem to find any in the stores. I just spent 30 minuntes looking around istencils and got boggled so decided I will look more tomorrow. Also checked out their prices vs. others and they are right in the ball park for their larger size. I will probably get some numbers and I think letters too. Just have to figure out the most valuable size to get.

  13. Looks nice, Kim. You are always doing something fun.

    I saw your switchplates in a couple of the pictures. I had been wondering if the part where you actually plug into was still white and I can see it is. I'm still working on mine-got some black plates, but haven't tried them yet.

  18. I love your cutting board and wonder if AS paint is food grade? The istencil site has an amazing selection. I loved the letters and the food stencils. Funny thing happened when I clicked the stencil brushes link, it took me to the Yahoo news page. Guess they have a few kinks to work out. Thanks for all of your inspiring posts and for hosting this free giveaway.

  22. J. Bishop, I don't use this board. It is only for decorative purposes. If I did want to use it I can use the other side.

  25. I love this Kim. I have been eyeing one of my breadboard to work some magic on.

    I would definitely do a French stencil of some design.

  26. Cute project, Kim! It looks adorable in the corner, all gussied up!
    P.S. I lLOVE your cabinet hardware! I almost used that same hardware on ours, but another one surprised me and looked better on our cabinets. Yours are prettier, but I needed something bigger, so size won out in the end.
