Chippy-Chirpy Bird

I used the peeling paint technique I like on this little stool and old tool (?) box.
I scraped off the paint before applying my final paint color.  I stuck down a bird stencil cut from the cricut over the peeling paint and then painted the whole thing brown.  I pulled up the stencil, sanded and scraped a little more and that was it.  It is the first time I have tried this and I am very pleased with the results.

  7. I really, really like this - just so I understand - so you sort of reverse stenciled it?
