Polka Dots

I found a really great side table that I am refurbishing to sell on Poppy Ginger. I'm putting polka dot paper on the inside of the drawers and I was trying to figure out a way to get nice dots on the outside of the drawers as well. I found something that worked wonderfully! Since I have to wait for the paint to dry before I can do the inside of the drawers I thought I'd take a minute and share this idea with you. Have you ever seen these circle stickers? I bought them when Pebbles in My Pocket was having a mass sale and I got a few for 10 cents each.  I decided to peel the edge on the outside of the sticker and use it as a stencil.  After placing it on the drawer front I painted a thin red coat to seal it so it would be less likely to leak.  I painted the white and pealed away.  There was still a tiny bit of leakage so I just took a toothpick and smoothed out the edges.  I love how it turned out!!


  1. OK I the only one thinking, "Where in the hell does she find the time to have 5 kids and do all these cute projects?" I guess so. Could you please plan a trip to Douglasville, Ga. and help me!



It's such a pleasure to hear from you! Thank you for taking a moment to comment. If you have a question, please leave me your email address! Thanks a million!
