A few weeks ago I had the privilege of picking out a stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils to review. They have SO many great stencils it was hard picking out just one!!! I narrowed it down to the many great “craft sized” stencils that they have and then picked my favorite: Fleur Craft Stencil by Kathy Peterson. I knew exactly what project I wanted to tackle… Re-upholstering an old stool for my girls’ room. I was so impressed with how it turned out that I made a matching pillow too!
Doesn’t the pillow look cute with the rest of the bedding? It was so nice to be able to stencil whatever color and design that I wanted without having to search the store over thousands of fabrics!
To make your own painted fabric for up-holstering or making a pillowcase you will need:
Light colored Fabric for painting (pick something a bit thicker to prevent bleeding though)
This stool was looking very used, but just a little spray paint, stenciled fabric, a plastic shower curtain (on top of the fabric for protection) and a few ruffles… now it looks better than ever!
The best part is that my girls love it and use it everyday!
