Stenciled Pocket Watch Children’s Desk

Whelp, I moved on to Round 4 in Every Creative Endeavor’s Creative Blogger’s Got Talent contest. The new projects are up now so please go vote! While I can’t tell you which project is mine, I can show you what I did for Round 3. So here we go!

A Stenciled Pocket Watch Children’s Desk!

And here’s what I started with…

I used two coats of Old White Annie Sloan Chalk Paint all over the base of the desk. Then I painted the drawers in ASCP Country Grey. My idea was to match some adorable pocket watch knobs I found at Michael’s for $1 each!

I then used my Cameo Silhouette to print out a stencil of a large pocket watch. I transferred it onto the table and lighting filled in the top of the white desk with the Country Grey ASCP.

I sanded the whole desk down a bit, used a coat of clear wax throughout and added the pocket watch hardware!

Aren’t the knobs adorable? Especially for $1 each!

And here’s how the stencil turned out! I distressed it so it was a little faded.
