Once a Cheetah always a Cheetah ~ a bench GONE WILD

You know what they say about a leopard never changing its spots? 

( photo from Mill Stores of New England )
The above photo is a " pretend" before image of a similar bench I bought at a local flea market for 20.00. 

 With the help of  the Royal Design Studio Small Wonders stencil collection I gave it a completely new identity! These stencils come small so you can easily fit them onto small surfaces allowing you to create amazing designs on furniture, signs, mailboxes, walls and more. 

I created a faux Zebra Seat with a bold purple border just for fun!

Go ahead, try it out!  

I thought we could use a little WILD today! 
Enjoy and Happy RE-PURPOSING! 

Gone wild lately? Try it! 
You'll just feel better! I promise!

* This piece was painted in a neutral latex base coat then sanded lightly. All decorative paint is acrylic craft paint from Michaels Craft Store. It has been sealed with three coats of water based varnish for added protection and to bring out the painted design.
