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!!
