This is a postscript to this morning's blog post. I just couldn't stand the blank canvas from my no sew ottoman so I used a stencil I purchased several months ago from Maison de Stencils. I love this stencil and it was easy to use. I poured a glob of pewter gray and a glob of gray taupe next to each other on my palette and instead of mixing them, I simply dabbed the stencil brush kind of in both colors using different parts of my brush. I thought it would give it more of a worn faded look. It's still pretty neutral, just not blank.
Hi, my name is Maggie. I have worked in the legal field for 27 years, but my real passion is finding treasures and restoring or repurposing them. I love everything French. I have been a dealer in different antique malls for the past 12 years and for the past six years have been a dealer at Aubergine Emporium in Simi Valley, California. I am also a vendor at The Little French Flea Market in Tarzana, California. I absolutely love the hunt.
