  • How to make a chair. Stenciled Chair Diy - Step 3
    Step 3

    1. Squeeze your paint out on some paper plates so that it's easy to pick up with your sponges
    2. & 3. Before you start on your chair you want to test the stencil on a piece of plain fabric and see how you want to apply the paint
    *I created an ombre effect by using white mixed with a darker blue and mixed the paints as I applied them to the stencil-darker on top and bottom and lighter shades in the middle
    4. Add double stick tape to the back of the stencil to help keep it in place on the back of the chair
    *You can also lightly spray the back of the stencil with repositionable spray mount in between stenciling the design
    5. Starting in the exact center of the chair at the top, stencil your design down to the seat
    *Put a rag on the seat to protect it from drips and splatters
    6. Carefully start applying paint
    7. 8. & 9. Position the stencil around the chair after each section has dried
    10. Keep cleaning the stencil in between applications of paint
    11. Use the spray mount when your stenciling around the arms or tape it in place so that it doesn't move
    12. Trim the stencil to get into hard to reach places AFTER you've stenciled all of the larger spots
