French Stencil

I've wanted to try a harlequin~French design on something~~

~~this little table I bought several months ago at CC for under $5.00~~

~~white base painted then added my own diamond shape in gray paint to the top;  sanded and distressed before adding the French stencil~~

~~then more light sanding~~added a quick swipe of walnut stain; finished off with a matte sealer to protect the surface~~

I've found some really wonderful stencils through Etsy; my next attempt at some antique~y looking signs using large stencil letters and numbers on old cabinet doors found at the resale shop.   Have you stenciled something recently?

~~Joining the parties here this week; see you there!
