I bought this wood magazine file from Goodwill months ago, and while I’ve been using it on the counter for random papers, it wasn’t prettified yet. I thought I had a “before picture” on my computer somewhere, but I couldn’t find it. At first my plan was to Mod Podge some scrapbook paper onto it, but it’s taller than 12 inches!
So I finally stenciled it instead and I love it!
I painted it orange first then created (in Make-the-Cut) and cut (with my Cougar) some stencils out of vinyl. I just used a color that I didn’t love, so wouldn’t be using on any actual vinyl projects. Shelf liner from the dollar store would have worked great too, but this way I didn’t have to go buy anything extra.
I adhered the stencil and painted it white. There were only a few places where I had to touch up.
I’m not sure there’s anything around here safe from stenciling. What do you think? Is stenciling a passing trend or here to stay?
