Can’t find the stencil you want? Today I am sharing how to stencil with a printable.

Here's a table I picked up on Facebook Marketplace. I thought it would need some work but the table was actually in great shape and from Pier One Imports. The main color was green and it had some gold trim. My daughter was heading off to college and the school colors happened to be green and gold.

I cleaned the table from top to bottom with Krud Kutter. This would also prepare the top for stenciling.

I went online looking for something that would help me stencil this table with Colorado State University. I found this Halloween pumpkin carving of Cam the Ram. I printed it out on card stock, and cut out the shaded areas.

I used white Folk Art Home Decor Chalk Paint and my Plaid stencil brush. I dipped the stencil brush into the paint, then off loaded as much of the paint as possible to prevent bleeding under the stencil. I then tapped the stencil brush onto the table.

After the paint dried I use Folk Art Home Decor Varnish to protect the table top. I placed 2 coats onto the table following the back of the bottle apply and dry times.
