Here is a real trash to treasure project. I put this bureau in my yard sale last Summer, selling for a mere $20. Well, there were no takers, so I put it in my garage for a few months until I one day I decided I could really use this in my house after all. A few quick coats of off-white paint and I was ready to stencil away. I chose this allover repeat design because it was one I already had on hand. I like the allover repeat designs because they are typically one overlay and you can cover a lot of territory quickly. For this particular project, I just used latex interior house paint thinned slightly with water. Repositionable spray adhesive works well for this type of stenciling project. I used a stencil brush, being sure to offload excess paint onto a paper towel before stenciling. A couple coats of polyurethane were added to the top, so I could use it as a bar in my dining room.
