Good morning， my DIY friends.？ Cutting Edge Stencils is chatting about thrift store finds today over here on Stencil Stories.？ We love thrift store makeover stories because they’；re so inspiring. ？ There’；s just something about finding a gorgeous piece of furniture for under $20 and then transforming it using a little bit of creativity and a stencil.？ Come take a look at how a thrift store dud was made over into a designer stud…；canvas throw pillow covers
We’；d like to welcome back Nancy， the creative DIYer behind the blog Artsy Chicks Rule.？ Just last week we shared her stenciled upholstered chairpersonalized wedding gifts， do you remember this post？
Yup， she’；s the crafty DIYer that painted and stenciled an upholstered chair.？ Well she has certainly been bitten by the stenciling bug because she was back at it again using the same Gabrielle Damask stencil pattern.？ We love when our reusable stencils are used on multiple projects.？ Nancy spotted these beat up nightstands at a local thrift store for $15 for the pair.？ They were solid wood and full of potential especially once they were in Nancy’；s hands.
The first thing Nancy did was paint these babies using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in pure white.？ Once her basecoat was dry， she was ready to add a pretty pattern using a stencil.？ Nancy decided to use our Gabrielle Damask stencil since she had it on hand from her previous project.？ She used painter’；s tape to adhere the stencil to the drawer front.
Then she painted the damask pattern randomly across the front of the drawer in Annie Sloan’；s Chalk Paint in Aubusson Blue.
After the stencil was complete， Nancy sanded it down for a roughed up look and then applied a sealant.？ She added some adorable white knobs.？ Presto chango， bet you would never guess this was the same thrift store find!
They look great， don’；t you think？
