I love painting furniture! But as you know, my day job is painting inside homes. On our other business blog http://2womenandapaintbrush.blogspot.com/ I usually blog about those projects but this one was so much fun I had to share it here as well.
The customer wanted to do something fun with her steps. She had seen an interesting treatment on another blog and wanted to know if we could duplicate it? Hahahaha! I laughed loudly (and flung my hair wildly over my shoulder) "Of course I can!"
She ordered these Moroccan stencils online and we got started painting the steps in 2 sets of blue and 2 stets of white etc.....
We knew we had to cut the stencils down in order to cut down on "fussing" time. Once we did that the process went very quickly.
2 of the stencils had very thin lines and when you stencil with paint it's very easy for the paint to bleed under the stencil, so when we were finished we had to go back and touch up with a tiny paintbrush just to freshen things up.
The end result was Fabulous! We were as excited as she was! Even though I couldn't stand straight for hours (sitting on a small step, twisted around, does a number on your spine), it was so worth it!
