Instructions

Preparation

When starting to do an up-cycle piece be sure and wash with a de-greaser using a lint free cloth.

 

Painting

  1. Paint all of the light teal areas with a mix of 5 parts Lichen to 1 part White Lace and 1 part Dragonfly.
  2. Paint the top drawer that doesn't open with a mix of 2 parts Oyster Shell to 1 part Dragonfly.
  3. Paint the dark olive drawer and the vertical decorative area of the side door with a mix of 2 parts Spanish Olive to 1 part Marigold.
  4. Paint the light olive drawer by adding an equal amount of Whipped Cream to the olive mix from the preceding step.
  5. Paint the ivory drawer with Whipped Cream plus a touch of Persimmon.
  6. Paint the yellow drawer with Marigold plus a touch of Whipped Cream.
  7. Allow the piece to dry and then sand with medium grit sandpaper.

Stenciling

Tape the stencil firmly in place. Using a wedge sponge holding on to the long thin end, pat the large flat end into color. Pat excess off on palette, pat over the open images on the stencil, allow to dry and pick up stencil. Applying color too heavily will cause bleeding under the edges of the stencil. TIP: When stenciling using only portions of the design, it is easier to use painters or stencil tape to mask the open areas of the stencil that you don't want paint to use.

  1. Stencil a small flower Spanish Olive plus patting a little Marigold at the tips of the petals.
  2. Stencil a larger flower Whipped Cream, patting Marigold towards the center of the flower.
  3. Stencil the medium flower in Marigold, patting a little Persimmon in towards the center of the flower. 
  4. Stencil a few flowers of choice using the same colors on the fronts of every other drawer using the same coloring as above.
  5. Stencil three flowers on the back corner of each side door using the same coloring.

Finishing

  1. Allow to dry and then sand the flowers lightly with medium grit sandpaper.
  2. Paint all of the knobs Marigold.
  3. Apply an even coat of Clear Wax allow to dry and buff with a lint-free cloth.
  4. Apply an even coat of Antique Wax allow to dry and buff again.
