Do you ever come across a really boring piece of furniture and wonder what to do with it? Well here is your answer! Typography!
Just slap on a coat of paint, stencil on some words, and whalah! Look what you get!
This is Marjee's masterpiece. Iconic surf spots along the California coast.
On this particular piece, Mak painted the base coat in French Linen. Then she did a thin coat of Old White on the drawers, and a white wash on the body. She then stenciled on the white drawers with French Linen, and sanded it back a bit to get that beachy, weathered look. Nice job MaK!!
Surf spots are pretty popular in San Clemente. But the possibilities for typography on furniture are endless!
How cute is this! For the photographer in your life.
Or this - for the British Subway rider in your life! :)
Or you could try some numbers.....
Some crazy, crazy, numbers....
Or some fancy French numbers....
How about this?
How about some reverse stenciling? And leave some nice wood peeking through? Oh the possibilities!
You can get really involved.
Or keep it really simple.
Just let your piece of furniture speak to you!This one had a whole lot to say.
I better stop now!
