Thrifted Wood and Stenciled Signs Repurposed 8

Finished three stencilled projects this past week, Laundry, Cottage Home and Le Petit Gateau.

After painting and stencilling,  the Laundry sign was sanded and clear waxed. 

The Cottage Home has clear/dark/clear wax as the finish, after sanding.

Lazy Susan painted, stencilled with finish.

Three signs before sanding and adding a finish (below).

I painted a Lazy Susan and added a stencil.

Sequence - painted the Lazy Susan with 2 coats of ASCP White. Added a stencil using CeCe Caldwell Beckley Coal.

After sanding and waxing the Laundry and Cottage Home signs I tried something different with the Le Petit Gateau Lazy Susan. 

I lightly sanded the painted edge before applying 2 coats of Fusion Tough Coat Matt Sealer Clear, drying for 4 hours between each coat. It does not change the colour of the white paint and has a semi-gloss hard finish, good for surfaces like tables and floors.

Fall rains have started so I picked roses to share.

Thank you for visiting.

  1. Lovely projects, Joy! Where do you get all your energy! It seems to take me months to finish things....too many irons in the fire! LOL! thanks for the link to the tough coat as I am getting ready to paint some floors and that may come in handy! I never thought about stenciling for signs.....great idea and they are all really cool ones. Have a great weekend!

  2. Love your signs, Joy. It was the name of that CeCe Caldwell paint color that immediately drew my attention - Beckley Coal. Beckley is the name of coal mining town in southern West Virginia, about 50 miles from the capital city of our state. There's an exhibition coal mine there, but many active coal mines as well (at least they used to be active when coal was king).
    Happy Fall!
