Trend watch: reverse stenciling

I’m always hunting for ideas and inspiration. And since I have a garage full of furniture to reinvent, I went hunting today! Reverse stenciling is trending, and I really do love the look of bare wood peeking through a painted piece. If you look through my home, you’d probably be surprised to know that most of my furniture is pure, unpainted wood. I think wood naturally warms up a space, especially when using a cool color scheme. When painting or updating my furniture, I love to keep a little of the old, while at the same time breathe new life into it. Take a look at these reverse stenciling techniques that inspire me!
