Quite a few years ago, I painted the doors on this garden shed for a client. I just took this photo last week and was quite surprised to see how well the paint has held up, through at least five New England winters! I vaguely remember what paints I used, but I’m guessing it was a combination of craft acrylics, Patio Paints, and latex interior house paints. I did seal everything with several coats of a water based polyurethane. For this project, I pulled out all the garden stencils I could find in my stash. I can see I used stencils from Dressler Stencils, Lynn Brehm Designs, The Mad Stencilist, and Royal Design Studio, to name a few! This was a very fun project and I am now talking with the homeowner about stenciling some flowers onto her Adirondack chairs. She reports that she loves looking out of her kitchen window at this cheery scene in the dead of Winter!
