Most of us have at least some furniture that could use an update. One of the prettiest way to do this is to use a stencil to create a one-of-a-kind piece. Karli from cuttingedgestencils shows us how to use a mandala stencil on an old TV stand to transform it to a custom piece.
Karli began by completely sanding the entire TV stand and then making sure it was free of dust and debris. She gives us a short supply list for this project, and all the materials are easily obtained. Once the piece has been sanded and clean, Karli primed and painted the stand. Karli made sure the stencil covered the top and front of the stand before she began the process of stenciling. She used a metallic paint applied with a small stencil brush to carefully fill in the spaces.
A very thin layer of paint works best so the chances of it bleeding through is decreased. Once it is dry, it is sealed with a protective finish.
