INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Begin your project by lightly sanding the dresser and removing and hardware or knobs. Wipe away any sanding dust.

  2. Position the stencil on the drawer front; if needed, use painter's tape to hold the stencil in place. Lightly load a foam roller with yellow paint and roll over the stencil. Repeat to cover the front of the dresser.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Replace the stencil over the previous stenciling. Lightly roll white onto the front, allowing some areas to have more white than others.

  4. In the center of each drawer, stencil a bee of your choice in brown.

HELPFUL HINTS

Keep the stencil roller very dry when stenciling, roll it on a paper towel to remove excess paint before applying.
