Elegant Dresser Makeover with Tone on Tone Stencil

Materials Needed:

Staging / Home Decor


This pair of modern dressers were brought to me by my customer looking to give them an updated look. She wanted something in the gray family but a bit fancier than just plain gray.  After much thought, she decided on a gray body with dark gray top and metallic stencil top!

The Result

This plan worked out wonderfully because I had recently been in contact with Cutting Edge Stencils who just came out with multiple new stencils.  My customer chose the very pretty Victoria Scroll all over stencil for the dresser tops.  Swoon!stenciled dresser, just the woods, cutting edge stencils, tone on tone

The dressers were both prepped and cleaned as usual and painted a creamy elephant gray on the bottom with a custom mixed darker version of the same gray on top.  The stencil was then done using a foam roller, provided but Cutting Edge Stencils in a custom mixed dark metallic silver.  The tone on tone of the stencil gives an almost ghost appearance.  Depending on how the light hits it the shimmer appears to come and go.

The dressers with their very straight clean lines tied with the tone on tone top give an overall elegant appearance. painted dresser, stenciled dresser, stenciled furniture, metallic stencil, gray dresser, chalk paint

As it turned out the original hardware was left unchanged and continue to compliment the updated dressers beautifully. I sure hope my customer loves them!  What do you think?
