Stenciled Burlap Pillow with DecoArt Paints and Stencils

Tuesday, September 3, 2013

Whoosh!  The end of summer flew by and I've been out and about having tons of fun with our boys.  Our older two boys started Back to School today {sniffle, sniffle... but also, the return to routine will be nice}.  

And I'll have more time for blogging again... yay!

I did manage to sneak in a project last week that I've been wanting to do forever... I stenciled a "G" for our last name along with some polka dots on this little burlap pillow.  I love this little pillow because it was the 1st thing I ever sewed, and also because I love burlap.

Now with its cute, simple monogram using DecoArt's stencils and paints, it really takes center stage and adds a bit of character to an otherwise pretty boring {although gorgeous} antique church pew.  I adore this church pew and even though I'm pretty big on painting over wood these days, I guarantee that this beauty will NEVER be painted over.  I like to keep just a few simple pillows on it so I'm loving how the stenciled burlap adds a little charm to this special spot in our home.

Supplies needed:

Foam paint brush
Tape to hold stencil in place
Americana 5" Stencil Font Alphabet
Americana Stencil Polka Dots
Americana Acrylic Paint {by DecoArt} in Antique Teal
Americana Acrylic Paint {by DecoArt} in Light Buttermilk
Americana Acrylic Paint {by DecoArt} in Sea Glass
{Sea Glass is my favorite paint color-  I just up-cycled an old frame to a chalkboard with Sea Glass and I LOVE it.}

This supply is optional, but definitely adds to the excitement of the project: a cute little helper!

It was about a 10 minute project- I just taped down my stencil and got to painting!

Once the G was dry, I stenciled on the polka dots, let it dry for a few minutes, and watched it instantly add a touch of charm to our family room.  

Thank you, DecoArt for the fabulous products!
