Painted Patterns on Furniture - Quatrefoil and Chevron

Here are some popular patterns

that are showing up everywhere in home decor.


is a four lobed, four petaled, or four leafed design.
Pin It!

I used this pattern on an old dresser and head board.

Pin It!
Starting with a good sanding, 

and then putting deglosser on the laminate top,

I followed up with a spray primer and then paint.

I like to make custom sized stencils with paper

and packaging tape.

More before's and after's.

Here is also a redo using the popular chevron pattern

for a baby's nursery.

Sand and spray prime white.

Then paint yellow.

Pin It!

Because I paint a lot of furniture,

I don't always photograph all of the steps,

but I like to keep good before and after shots.

They give vision for what a piece can become!

Thanks for stopping by!

Your pieces are beautiful! I love the matching headboard...the softness of white and grey. The print adds just the perfect amount of punch. :-)
