Loving the lattice!

I am usually not a fan of stencils but I decided to try it anyway. I purchased a vintage chest from an online auction a couple of weeks ago. However, when I went to pick up the piece, I was disappointed to find many dents and flaws in the chest. This sometimes happens when you purchase an antique from an online auction. You just have to take that chance sometimes! So I made the decision to cover some of the flaws with a stencil. The painting process was surprising easy...

I bought the Zamira Stencil from Cutting Edge the Moroccan style of this lattice design.

The stencil was easy to keep in place and on track. I used white over a gray background. I am pleased with the finished piece....nice decorative storage addition to our dining room! I was able to achieve a beautiful updated chest and hide a few flaws too!
