Feature Friday: Paris Apartment Chair and Desk

Well I'm a day late and a dollar short with our Friday Feature!  I'm out here in Arizona visiting family and it's simply too hot to be on time.  :)

Check how great this feature is.  Kelly from Shabulous took this desk and chair from a consignment store and stencilifed (totally a word) them.

Now these were great furniture pieces to begin with.  Particularly that chair, look at the back!  It was made for stenciling on.

She used Paris Grey and Graphite Annie Sloan Chalk Paint for the paint.  Always great choices, we loooove Chalk Paint!

Now this here is great.  She used a ruler to make sure she was painting our Fleur de Lis border stencil straight on the desk.  Never in a million years would I have thought of that, but what a good idea.

For the chair back, she used our Paris Apartment No 5 stencil.  This is one of our most popular chandelier stencils. 

Here's the finished product.  The chair and desk look terrific together. 

If you'd like to check out our Fleur de Lis border and other border stencils, hop on over to our Flourish and Scroll category.

To have a look at Paris Apartment No 5 and our other chandelier stencils, check out the Chandelier category. 

Definitely check out Shabulous, it's a great blog and we were delighted to be featured there.  Here's a link to the original post.

Have a great weekend and we'll see you on Wednesday!
