The stencils are from a book I've had for ages: Ancient and Living Cultures Stencils - Ancient Celts.  There are 4 cardboard pages with punch-out stencils.  This was the first time I've used them!

Wow, I really love that. And those colors would totally match my living room. I would never have thought that original piece could end up looking so beautiful, but it really does.

So far this is my favorite challenge piece.  Functional AND pretty.  Striking color combo. I am a sucker for celtic knotwork so I Love Love Love the stencil.  This is a VERY dramatic makeover.

Thank you all!

I already have some stuff in the drawers - scissors, tape measure, Sharpies, tape - you know, all the little things that seems to get lost all around the house, just when you need them for your projects.
