You'll love this dresser decorated with wine and grape stencils as an accent in your living or dining room.
Having a hand painted, custom piece of furniture in your home adds a touch of class and personality. Not to mention that you can take an old piece of furniture that maybe you are ready to throw to the trash and make a conversation piece out of it. Decorative stenciling on furniture is easy because the stencils guide you to create the images.
Oh yeah! We now have a catalog for you to browse a large variety of stencils and you can find the designs used in this project at the Stencils Catalog (or just scroll down this page).
This dresser was actually a piece that I got from my neighbors garbage. It was originally a four drawer dresser but two of the drawers were missing. So, I cut down the side and back panels so that only the two drawers were left. I nailed pieces of accent wood around the bottom on the front and sides.
I used a cream colored spray paint on the entire dresser before stenciling. To make it easier on myself, I took the drawer that I was going to stencil on and brought it in where I was comfortable. It’s easier to lug around just a drawer instead of the whole dresser. I lightly brushed a thin layer of tan paint on the area where the stencils would be painted with a crisp line at the top to give the appearance of a table top. Then the stencils went on. You may want to take a few moments to plan where each stencil will be painted.
