I'm so excited to show you this chest of drawers that I painted for my Star Wars mad 10 year old.
It started off as plain white with some funky hardware which I like and decided to keep as is.
Initially Gabe wasn't sure what he wanted and was trying to decide between Han Solo or Darth Vader. Of course good won in the end and he decided Han was by far the favourite. So we found this image on Pinterest and traced it back to Strix.org.uk. Which is a stencil generator, we wasted a good few hours creating others, it's very fun.
I used a projector connected to a laptop to project the image onto the drawers. It was very easy to do.
Using a pencil I quickly and lightly traced around the edges.
I used black acrylic paint to fill the image in. This is an awful night time photo, and possibly I should have painted during the day, but I just couldn't stop. I was having too much fun,
The next day I gave Han a second coat of paint. Isn't he gorgeous?
Once the paint was dry, I carefully waxed and buffed the entire chest of drawers.
I am so impressed with how this project turned out. It was easier than I expected and so much more fun than I thought it would be.
My son just loves it in his Star Wars themed room.
It is budget friendly too. It only cost the price of black paint sample pot .
And in a few years when my tween no longer wants a giant Han Solo on his chest of drawers, its easily sanded off and repainted.Take care
