Anyhow I have this obsession for stencils and old pieces of furniture or wood lately. It seems that all of my projects revolve around them, but I can't seem to detour away from it. So if you like old, imperfect pieces stick with me. :) In the pictures below it shows you how I took a simple wood piece, that was from an old farm house, and turned it into something for the wall or on a ledge. I have it in my kitchen behind my sink. It fits perfectly there and doesn't take up too much room. I just LOVE filling up my house with old treasures!!! I will have to ask my husband if he feels the same. ;) Have a great night!! Jessica
This is the piece of wood before the stenciling. I think it was from the trim in the house. I didn't even paint it...I think that's what makes a lot of these pieces charming.
Here is what it looks like after against the red walls in my kitchen.
