In case you haven't noticed, if something stays still around here it gets painted.So go grab your stencils and get reinventing old furniture. A selection of stencils are available from hardware stores and normally places that sell wallpapers. Try online or eBay for some really different stencils. As stenciling involves only painting small areas try using a sponge to apply the paint as it goes on lighter and gives a better finish. If you're super creative why not make your own stencils? Use card or laminate your design to make sure it doesn't rip during the painting process.
