Industrial Farmhouse Stenciled Bar Stools

 
 
 
 
 
I have had these two Bar Stools for a long time. We don't have a
 
place to put them in the house but they do fit as extra seating
 
in the GARAGE. If you know me, you know.... we are always in the Garage.

Neighbors know if the garage door is open come on in.

 That is were I work on my craft projects.

I have my Dad's antique Oak Drafting Table and I love it! It has plenty of room.

The stools are in good shape, but a bit plain. The tops an inset of Masonite.
 
 
 
 
 
 
I was doing another project when I noticed these stencils are the perfect size
 
for the top of the stools.  I wanted to use two different stencils on the stools.
 
 
I used this stencil on the first stool. 

 
Cathe Holden Inspired Barn Stencils 
CH 008-12 x 12
 
 
 
 
 
 
I used Black Acrylic paint and a stencil brush
 
 
 
 
 
Center stencil, measure and tape in place.
 
 
 
 
 Start center and work to the outside.
 
 
 
 
Double check that nothing was missed.
 
Remove stencil.
 
 
 
Love it ! 
 
 
 
 I used this stencil on the second stool.
 
 
 
CH005- 12 x 12 
 
 

 

 
Center stencil, measure and tape in place. 
 
 
 
 
 Dry brush Tip : Paint should look dull, if the paint has a shine it's too wet.
 

 
 
 
 
 
 Finished !

Remove stencil and clean stencil with warm water and soap.
 
 
 
I used a clear matte sealer to protect the stencil. 
 
 
 
I really LOVE how they turned out. 
 
 Thanks for stopping by !
 
I hope you are having a wonderful day.

  10. These are so cute, Lisa! Love that stencil, too. I've loved Cathe Holden's style forever; good to see she has stencils! I had to laugh when you said you're always in your garage. We had a friend comment one time that we were always in the driveway (and also the garage)! Yep-it's where the creativity happens, right? Love your stools, too!

      Yes, Lora you totally get me. We had a friend leave a note on the front door after a week he called to tell me or it would still be there.....Thanks for the visit I loved it! Have a wonderful week. xo Lisa S
