This is such a simple way to add a whole lot of pizazz to your outdoor (or indoor) space!
Wood Round (aka: a slab of wood)
Stencil (Faber-Castell's Scandinavian)
Wood Stain (Minwax Dark Walnut)
Wood Sealer (optional, but recommended if you're keeping it outdoors)
You can watch the whole process in the video below, or follow along with the following instructions:
1. Place the stencil on top of the wood stump and use a make-up sponge to apply a minimal amount of white acrylic paint in an up and down dabbing motion to prevent it from seeping under the stencil. When finished, remove the stencil and allow to dry.
4. I probably could have waited for this to dry more, but I'm impatient...so I just started to lightly sand it to give it a more rustic, shabby finish.
And we're done! Just allow it to dry thoroughly before applying a wood sealer if you plan on keeping it outdoors or just want some added protection on it.
