Stenciled Deck Rug

We built our new house in the middle of a prairie hay field. This means we have a ton of wind at least until all our planted trees mature in about 10 years!! I have always wanted a beautiful deck with a pretty rug but unless it was nailed down and was pet hair proof it is not going to happen. I can however have a painted/stenciled one. Here is how I did it ...

Using this large prosperity mandala stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils and Fusion Mineral Paint I created the rug of my dreams.

Like any painted project, prep is needed.. first step was to sweep

and scrub my deck where I planed to put the new "rug".

I got my supplies ready
- my prosperity Cutting Edge Stencil - a mini foam roller and tray - a hammer and nail (to affix stencil in place) - my Fusion Mineral Paint colors; renfrew blue, azure and lamp white

Finding the center of where I wanted the "rug" I nailed it in place.


Malachite Jewelry Box

Isn't this a gorgeous jewelry box? The dark carved front just pops with this amazing malachite color from Jolie Paint.

This new jewelry box is lined with a lovely cream lining with great storage including a divided area and ring display and a bonus mirror.

I chose the color malachite from Jolie Paint nestled in this recently delivered parcel.

You can check out some of the other colors in this box used on these projects; navy on this sweet sofa table and verdigris used on this adorable chair and malachite on this cute accent chair.

Jolie Paint's malachite, in just a tester size was perfect. Two coats were applied in total (1 coat shown above and 2 below) then the jewelry box was wet distressed to reveal the lovely dark original finish and carved details.

 To seal the paint I applied Jolie's clear wax.

When the clear wax was dry, I added Fusion Mineral Paint's black and ageing waxes to add a bit more dimension.
