Faux French Wallpaper Cupboard

 
This stenciling technique is one that I have been teaching in my ASCP workshops.  It is so much fun to see how different and unique each individual's sample board turns out!  Even those who are unsure about it at first, love the end result!  It really imitates the look of time-worn French wallpaper! 
 
 
I promised to shy away from Antoinette this week, so I've done some painting in Graphite, French Linen and Old White!
 
 
In the mood for Fall, I picked up these pretty golden pumpkins to jazz up my display!

 
I think the sheet music shreds are a perfect accent, don't you? 
Almost like hay...but with a touch of vintage class!

 
 
This table was painted in Paris Grey and finished with dark wax, followed by some clear.
 
 
The basket was made over with watered down French Linen.  I attempted the spray bottle technique but it wasn't working too well for me, so I mostly brushed it on.
 
 
Sorry to cut this short but I have so much to do before the little one wakes up from her nap! 
 
 I hope you are having a lovely day!
 
Thank you for your sweet visit!
 
Best Wishes and Blessings,
Amanda
