I promise it works.
I painted three pieces with Krylon Cool Ocean Breeze.
Yes, you only see two.
I forgot to stick the gray bench in the photo.
Both the square bench and the wooden box after one coat.
The formerly gray now breezy blue bench.
I liked the way the paint soaked in with the first coat so I did not paint a second coat.
Here they are.
At this point I was torn over the choices of dark wax, stamping, sanding, or stenciling.
So they sat in the dining room for a week.
While browsing through Tuesday Morning, I found this delightful feathers stencil for $2.99!
These are large feathers and I was sure they would fit my benches.
Of course I was so wrong.
Four feathers were too large.
Single feathers around the square bench.
Three feathers on top of the short bench.
(This is a taupe-y gray color of FolkArt craft paint.)
Could not fit any of the feathers on the box.
Switched to number stencils.
The gray for the body of the number.
Used black with a fine liner brush to add shadow to each letter.
See the difference?
These three pieces fit in nicely with the other items being readied for the trip to Magnolia Ridge.
They will make great display pieces.
Plus they will be for sale.
These pieces will be at Magnolia Ridge.
