Tea and Coffee Stenciled

Breadboard (small) + stencil + black chalk/clay paint + stencil brush =


Sequence of making the sign...

Stencilled Tea and Coffee using Beckley Coal CeCe Caldwell, when dry waxed with Annie Sloan Soft Wax onto a small bread board.


Vintage Queen Anne c/s that DH bought for his Grandmother when he was six years old plus a blue and white plate with the new sign.


AND ....


A few days after stencilling the bread board I stencilled the same sign on another one of the small boards I picked up a year ago.



I added the zigzag hook on the back (3 tries to get it balanced) before painting. Its the measure twice and add hook once rule broken. I measured, added, removed, measured, added, removed and FINALLY measured  again and added the hook and it was finally balanced. Those little nails like to spring away from the hammer.



Painted 2 coats of CeCe Simply White and after drying time sanded the edges and then stencilled Tea and Coffee using Beckley Coal CeCe Caldwell and a small stencil brush. 
Masked the areas not needed.


When very dry waxed with Annie Sloan Soft Wax with round bristle brush. Sanded the edges a bit more.


Before and After


Loved the final result. 
Latte Instant is the coffee treat. 


Small signs, useful.

  7. Both of these are so cute! You do a fantastic job stenciling. Got a tip for you on those little nails...I use my smallest needle nose pliers or even my jewelry piers to hold the nail by the shank just under the head With just a small tap you can set the nail and then remove the pliers to tap it home. Hope this works for you;~) Best ~ Mickie
