In my kitchen I have a place above the cabinets that I decided needed decorating.  They are already framed in with a small molding, but it needed something more.  So I decided to use Joint compound and stencils. 




You could just as easily do this on walls too.  It's still drying, but once it's dry I'm going to paint over it with the cabinet paint and then go back over it and all the rest of my cabinets with a brown glaze to antique it.

I've got a tutorial on how to do this on my blog here:  http://allthingsshea.blogspot.com/2009/07/diy-fun-joint-compound-stencils.html

It's super easy and loads of fun to do on any flat surface, be it wall or cabinets.  Would be fun to do on canvas or wooden plaques as well.

Make sure you let it dry well before you paint it!

I would rather be bitten by a snake than walk thru a spiderweb and not know where the spider is!

This is so cool! Thanks for the tut also! Maybe I'll try this when I get my own house someday!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

I saw this on Decorating Cents years ago, and thanks for the reminder. We have more supplies on hand than we realize. Cool
