what do you use to mask off the space you don't want to paint? So curious....

yes, maps- i am kinda obsessed.
i masked off the stencil with painters tape. the second pic from the bottom is the dresser pre-paint with the tape on.

Beautiful! How did you get the paint to look like that? And what color is it? I am not creative enough to pull off the flowers, but maybe the finish.... Again, your work is amazing!

As usual, this is wonderful and I'm pining away for ANOTHER "new" piece of furniture.

thanks guys!
i used a light blue spray paint and then washed over it with a bit of watered down green acrylic paint. followed by the standard coats of water based poly.

Thank you for taking the time to answer my question. Boy how I wish I could move the shop to Montreal. :)
