I had also done a small microwave/kitchen cart thing in the antique finish. I didn't want the desk to be matchy matchy with the desk soooooooo I decided to try my hand at stenciling.
I googled flower clip art online and came up with this design:
I don't have a new printer at home yet so I printed it out at work. I had to tape the printout onto a piece of cardstock to cut it out. It would have been better if I could have printed it onto the cardstock because it got a little messy but I made it work.
I then taped it to my desk and using some of the gel stain that I used on the other pieces, I sponged the stencil.
I think this picture doesn't do it justice. It's really quite adorable in person I promise. :) It will look even better when this room is all set up.
Let me know what you think!
