Jewelry holder redone with Quatrefoil Stencil

Here is what I have been using to hold my necklaces, etc.  I have had this for over 10 yrs!  Don't ya LURRRVE the cute stenciling on the front?  

I decided to cover up that ugly stenciling and redo that lovely jewelry holder!
Sorry about the blurry picture, but can you see all the dust collecting on that thing?  
Pretty gross, huh?  I am not the best house keeper.  I am being honest here, so try not to judge me....

First I cleaned that baby with soap and water.  Wow, it actually doesn't look too bad.  Maybe I shouldn't....forget it, it needs a redo!

As you can see I sprayed it with 2 coats of Rustoleum Ultra 2X coverage- heirloom white (my favorite!).

Here's a pretty picture of what it looks like after I sprayed it.  Just ignore that ugly Halloween tablecloth I use for spray painting!

Here I go again, no pictures of stenciling it!  SORRY!  It was pretty easy, although I recommend taking the knobs off BEFORE you try to stencil (I didn't know they come out! DUH:) 
So...yea, I had a MAJOR problem stenciling with the knobs in.  I did the whole thing and it looked HORRIBLE, so I took the knobs out, then sprayed it again and tried the stenciling again.  LIVE and LEARN, huh?
I really love how it turned out!
I think it's PERDY, don't you?

It matches my room, which I am not going to show you, because it is a mess right now and needs to be repainted!

Thanks for stopping by today!!
