Laura, the owner and creator of Maison de Stencils is an absolute peach-of–a-gal. I am thrilled to have her as one of my friends. She has a unique flair and a keen eye for all things French. Laura’s stencils are some of my favorite design tools.
Don’t ya just love this stencil Laura designed? I thought I would share with you a few things I have developed for my line of reproduction antiques.
I often start with something familiar like an ottoman base, and try to re-purpose it. I use a quick fabric spray paint on my stencils, forget about sponging, besides my hands get tired that way. I like quick results with less effort, don’t you??
This ottoman has a washed Belgian linen slipcover with a 12 inch ruffle.
Yummy . . .
Then I move on to larger things like this washed handmade linen slip cover I stenciled.
All of Laura’s stencils are cut from 7 mil mylar, and are super durable and can be used again and again. There is no need to clean the paint off your stencils. It dries quickly usually within a few hours, depending on what type of paint you’re using.
This charming vintage inspired footstool, is still up for grabs in my ETSY shop :-)
If you like this stencil, Laura will design a custom stencil just for you, personalized with your family name and the date your Chateau was established. How cool is that ??
These stencils are just a click away, Happy Stenciling!!!
