March 2019 Thrifts and Stencil

March has been a very strange month even though it contained the 'first day of spring'. There were remnants of snow piles, cold, rain, sunshine, warm days. Last evening the sunset was stunning. 

Crocus, snowdrops in great clumps and a special full moon.

New stencil is at the end of this post.

A few thrifted sale finds this month.

Found a few nice pieces.



This is the board I used (thrift store free table) with one coat of the chalk-like paint I wrote about last week. 

The stencil I used is by Donna of Funky Junk Interiors. She designed and carries a broad range of stencils at her online store. The board had 3 coats of the paint before I added the stencil.

The supplies I used:

• thrifted board (that had a very patterned 
  painted surface)
• CeCe Caldwell's: Beckley Coal, CeCe Jersey
  Tomato, Carolina Sun Yellow, Springhill Green
• stencil from Donna of Funky Junk Interiors 
• Martha Stewart stencil brushes
• newspaper, paper towel, blue masking tape, my
  favourite paint brush, ruler
• ASCP clear wax, wax brush, clean soft
  polishing towelling

Check here for the same sequence I used to stencil this board.

Thank you for visiting today.

  1. Ma, you certainly redeemed that board! I love it! I need to visit her and get a few stencils. You do such amazing work. Every time I start to throw a board away, I stop and think - what would Joy do? So I have a collection of boards waiting for LINDA to finally do something with them!!

  2. I absolutely love your stencil work! This one is lovely, too! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

  3. Great shot of the sunset. It has been a weird weather month here too. Love your little egg cups, a friend just asked me to look for them at the thrift store (she doesn't thrift but knows I do).

  4. Spring flowers already! Awesome. Lovely sunset.
    Those are all cute finds with character.
    I like your chevron stenciling with the touch of gold. :)

  5. Such a pretty stenciled sign. March was weird here too; our largest storm of the season took place in March! Thanks for sharing with us at Welcome Spring party. Pinned.

  6. So many fun things to see here Joy, Thank you and have a great week.

  7. These are so beautiful. I wish I was as creative.


Thanks for visiting. I read and appreciate all your comments. Joy
