When I say Festooned I mean Festooned

The Blue Stenciled table, a little stenciling is not enough

The Blue Stenciled table, a little stenciling is not enough. Now its Festooned!

To me the word Festooned means to be totally covered with a design. The dictionary says I means totally covered with flowers, that’s close enough considering I have been using it for a few months to describe my uber stenciled furniture.

As I was finishing up on this table I decided to go to the next level and absolutely cover every possible surface with stencil. This project was complicated by the fact that the color I selected although beautiful came from a paint line with zero coverage. Can we say 6 coats of paint. I ended up rescuing myself with a similar color from another brand of paint. That prompted me to write my paint recommendations  I wouldn’t want someone else to be seduced by the sexy can and be a slave to six coats of paint to get some decent coverage. But back to the table, as usual I’m not done yet, with much touching up to do. I unveiled it a little earlier than normal to get on Claire’s  Rustic Pigs, creative Tuesday (yes its Wednesday) But I love it! Yes its dizzying to look at. I’ll put a warning sign “May make you dizzy with Beauty!” but is lovely and exotic, just how I like it.  Contact me if you are interested in purchasing. Till next time.
