Country settlers dressed up walls and furnishings with easy stencil designs—and you can, too. Adorn a timeworn painted chair with a star stencil from the crafts store. Position the stencil on the chair back and secure with painter’s tape. Use a stencil brush to apply red acrylic paint or another color that coordinates with the chair’s finish. Remove the stencil and lightly distress the stenciled area with sandpaper. Create a singular accent, or stencil a whole set of chairs to surround a dining table or perk up an outdoor gathering spot.
