How to Stencil a Table Using Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan
This stencilled table was a dark plain wood before being updated with Annie’s Trees stencil.
Paint over the table top loosely with Chalk Paint in Old White.
Working quickly, and while the paint is still wet, wipe the paint back with a clean cloth.
Repeat, working in sections so you’re wiping back while the paint is still wet.
Use two pieces of string running from corner to corner to find the centre point in the table. This is where you want to start your stencilling.
Pour Old White into a tray and charge your Annie Sloan Sponge Roller. Roll it back and forth to take off any excess.
Apply the paint through the stencil.
Lift the stencil back.
Annie repeated the stencil, lining up the houses and trees.
Annie then picked out parts of the stencil design in strong colours like Provence, Antibes and Burgundy.
