Chinoiserie-Stenciled Table and Chair Set

Here's all you need to make a little nook for rest and relaxation this summer. This set of outdoor furniture was given a quick refresh in time for the warm weather season with paint and stencils.

  2. With a second flat sash brush, paint the table with a basecoat of "Mallard" craft paint; let dry. Apply a second coat of paint if needed.
  3. Tape the stencil design to the table top using stencil tape and pounce "Celadon" craft paint over the stencil using a stencil brush. Create a repeat pattern by alternating two designs in one row; in the next row, make sure the pattern is offset rather than aligned to the row above.
