I started the new year with some new stencils and couldn’t wait to try them. I had this coffee table and side table that was perfect for the African Plumes Furniture Stencil by Royal Design Studio.

After a light sanding and some bright white paint it was time for the fun to begin. For the coffee table, I started in the center and worked to the end then turned it for the other half. I used two shades of grey and a touch of black.

Then for the side table, I divided the table top evenly and used one plume and moved it around on my marks and it made this great star design.
