Feature Friday: The Confections Table

Hello all!

We've got an awesome feature today from a great client, Andrea, in Germany.  She and Laura worked together to create a custom stencil which she then applied to a desk table.

Isn't it great!  I just love how large it is!  We've been working more and more in the 12 x 18 size range for our stencils that have a lot of type.  It makes sense when you think about it.  The smaller the stencil, the smaller all those letters are going to be. 

Laura liked the finished product so much on this design she created a few more in the same style.  This is the idea that spun forth the patisserie and boulangerie labels.

I love what Andrea did here on the chair.  She took a few lines of type from the stencil and echoed them back on the top of the chair.  There's no rulebook that says you can only use every element of a stencil once.  Go crazy!  Use phrases as many or few times as you like. 

Andrea has a blog where you can check out all the amazing furniture pieces she's rehabbed.  You can check it out here.  I've been combing through it this week prepping for this feature and I have to say, I am more than a little bit jealous that she gets to go to all the markets in Paris and look for vintage treasures. 

You can also like her on Facebook at Vintage Inspirations

Like I mentioned above, this was a custom stencil.  But you can check out our other label stencils here

In other news, we were just featured on a wonderful blog called Cozy Little House.  Thanks so much for the welcome wagon!  Everyone in the blogosphere (is it still hip to say that?) has been so friendly and helpful.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  Here in Astoria, it's Scandinavian Festival weekend (We have a very rich Scandinavian heritage) so it's time for my little Viking and I to check out the folk dancers, have some aebelskiver, and hopefully not any lutefisk.


  1. Awesome feature - love how she added a little to the chair - love your larger stencils!!

  2. I love this table and the stencil on it. Fabulous.
