Easy Peasy

I found an alphabet stencil at one of those bargain closeout stores for less than $1!  They are 3" letters that look like an Arial font.  They also came with numbers and symbols.  Total score!
I had a small dresser to paint and when I got the stencil I immediately knew I wanted to use the numbers on it. 

I started with a base coat of Paris Grey.  I then painted it with 2 coats of the homemade chalk paint in Valspar Deep Sea Diving.

For the stencil and knobs I used the Paris Grey again and then distressed slightly.  I finished with a coat of AS clear and dark wax.  

Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

  1. I saw your dresser on Homemaker On A Dime so I thought I would drop by since I'm pretty new to blogging. Total score on the stencil! The dresser looks great and I will have to try the sample pots of paint you suggested on your purple chair post. I'm now following you and look forward to your next project :-)

  2. That looks great - I love it!
    Thanks for linking up!
