Just a quick post today to give you a peek of a project I have just finished. I will post more pics as soon as this lovely wooden valance is installed in my client’s kitchen! I will have a full tutorial on this very soon – so make sure you are signed up via email to receive my updates. Here’s a closeup…the stencil makes the wood look inlaid.
It started out as bare maple panels – and I stained and stenciled the inner panels and I primed, painted, distressed and antiqued the outer portions.
The valance is on the floor right now in these pics, taken with my iPad. (In the last pic you can see my stencil proofs that I used to determine how many runs of the stencil I would need to fit the panels). I later added some antiqued gold for the rims of the panels…not shown here. So, stay tuned for the tutorial and installed pics!
I will also be showing you the beautiful painted and antiqued island that I designed for this client – almost finished with that as well!
