Totes Paint and Stencils

A bit of stenciling this past week.

The painted shutter was also another project this week.

Donna of Funky Junk Interiors carries the Buffalo Check stencil here.

Love a versatile tote.

The green tote was a thrift store find, now re-purposed to a napkin/cutlery/carrying tote.

Used this Buffalo Check stencil on a bench last October (2017) here.  I loved the look then and have been waiting to try it again.

Stenciled Signs - Fresh Eggs 25¢

Used the stencil I made for the Egg signs. One with black lettering and one in dark grey. Sanded at bit, base coat was two washes - white with turquoise  on a cedar board, sanded the backgrounds before stenciling.

Just a short post this week.

A note for those who read my last post - found a replacement car this week, continuing with physio/doctor etc., (as so many of you have experienced when recovering from vehicle accidents).

I am grateful to be here.
