Gorgeous Bookcase Makeover & A Giveaway!

Using stencils to give furniture new life

I recently tweeted my love for Royal Design Studio, a stencil company that has the prettiest designs I have ever seen. I was beyond excited when they then asked if I would be interested in trying one out and was even more excited when they offered one for me to give to one of YOU {keep reading}!

I had a really hard time choosing a stencil but I knew for sure that I wanted to use it on the bookcase in my living room. It had been used to house baskets of toys for years and was looking awful. It was time to take it from Fit For the Playroom to Va Va Voom.

I also knew I wanted an allover pattern and I fell in love with this small eastern lattice stencil. The scale was perfect for the size of the bookcase. 

After a little patience, and a lot of excitement, this is what it looks like now!

I am thrilled with how it turned out! To see just how easy it is to do this yourself, check out my step-by-step instructions here.

Royal Design Studio has a ton of gorgeous designs to choose from. 

And guess what? YOU get to do just that. Royal Design Studio is giving a $50.00 Shopping Spree to one of my readers! Most of the stencils are $50.00 or less {mine was only $24.00!}. They will also pay your shipping.

Simply go the Royal Design Studio website, choose your favourite stencil and tell me the name of your pick in a comment below. Good luck!
