Recently I inherited a larger computer desk. I will share more about that project another time. I was using a small fabricated desk that I think we originally bought for the computer our kids used when they were in high school. They are both in their 20’s now, so I am guessing that the desk is about 10-15 years old. I had already repainted it once before to go with my Mary Engelbreit inspired kitchen decor. Needless to say I was all set to finally throw the darn thing out.
- Computer Desk: Free re-purposed. Look around at yard sales, Goodwill, etc.
- OSH Brand Spray Paint: 3-4 cans @ $2.99 each.
- Wood Dowels, Stencils, Craft Paint & Spray Adhesive: I used what I had on hand from a previous project. Both stencils and paint range in price depending on the size. I usually buy most of my supplies at Michaels Craft Store and almost always use a coupon.
- Craft Carts: The carts that are stored in the bottom of the caddy. One I bought at Joann Fabrics on SALE for $49.99 and the other is our old Nintendo cart, re-purposed of course.
Thanks for visiting!
I wash my stencils in a mild soap and water solution. I also started adding a cap full of liquid TSP to the water. I use this product to clean my paint brushes too. This helps remove some of the sticky adhesive spray residue. I started layering the stencils between wax paper to store them so that they lay flat and will not stick to each other in storage.
