Unfinished wood side table, Brush basin, Paper towels, Foam plates, Stencil tape, Ruler, Pencil, Medium- or fine-grit sandpaper, Screwdriver
- Create a smooth painting surface by removing all drawer-pull hardware using a screwdriver and set aside.
- Next, lightly sand smooth any rough areas of the unfinished wood side table. Wipe with a tack cloth to remove sanding dust.
- Pour a small amount of Bermuda into a foam bowl as a palette or load the basecoating brush directly from the paint bottle.
- Brush on a coat of Bermuda to the entire surface of the side table including all drawer fronts. Allow to dry one hour.
- If necessary, lightly sand smooth any rough areas where the wood grain may have been raised by the application of paint. Apply a second coat of Bermuda for opaque coverage. Clean the basecoating brush with soap and water, then allow both the brush and the painted side table time to dry thoroughly.
- Working with all drawers inserted, find the center and lightly mark with a pencil. Next, position the center of the stencil over the furniture center and secure in place with stencil tape.
- Pour a small amount of White onto a foam plate. Load a stencil brush with paint then offload excess paint onto a paper towel. Begin stenciling using a circular clockwise/counter-clockwise motion over the stencil design. Lift the stencil then reposition it to complete stenciling the entire drawer fronts and support dividers. Allow to dry.
- Replace all drawer-pull hardware.
- When repeating a stencil design, always check the backside of the stencil for paint residue before realigning it to the next area. If necessary, wipe the backside of the stencil with a baby wipe or moist paper towel.
- Keep stencils clean between uses by cleaning immediately with soap and water after each use or wiping down well with rubbing alcohol or hand sanitizer.
