Impulse Shopping Inspires a Rescue

When Joan from Nicer Than New impulsively purchased a Silhouette craft cutting machine, she had to look around her house for something to transform using her new toy.  ”I had a boring little oak chair sitting in my garage that was too low and too wide for the couple of desks I have already sold,” she says.  ”I decided this little lovely would be my test piece for a Silhouette printed stencil and paint project.”

For this first project, Joan decided to cut something out of contact paper and do a reverse stencil on the chair.  She settled on a scrambled number design, similar to Pottery Barn’s subway number art.  She cut the design, applied it to the chair, and painted the chair white over the numbers.  When she peeled away the numbers, she had the same cool subway number look on the seat of the chair.  Doesn’t that look great?  I think that impulse purchase may just work out really well for Joan!

    Thanks Beckie for sharing my latest project! I love what a bit paint can do for someone else’s trash!
