Meet Marie， the creative mind behind The Interior Frugalista.？ Marie is an avid DIYer and her blog is stocked full of amazing furniture projects.？？ Marie had our Birds of Paradise Stencil on hand.？ It’；s a classic damask wall pattern that features antique bird cage and tropical birds.
Marie’；s husband had stumbled upon this wooden coffee table.？ The legs were in good shape but the top was beat up.？ Marie saw a ton of potential.？ She decided to paint it using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White and French Linen.？ After a fresh coat of paint， the old table was already perking up.？ Marie felt it needed a splash of personality.？ She chose to use her Birds of Paradise Damask Stencil pattern in French Linen and Duck Egg Blue. To top it all off， she applied a coat of dark wax.？？ She said， ”； I wish I had a house with multiple rooms because I would really like to keep this sweet table but the reality is I don’；t and so I will sadly have to bid it farewell.”；？ We think the stenciled table looks amazing!
Marie wasn’；t so quick to put away her stencil!？ She washed it off after using it and prepared to use it again.？ Marie had a cute little wooden table sitting in her workshop.？ She decided to paint it using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Pure White.？ After it was painted Marie commented， “；That bottom shelf was begging for a graphic and that’；s when this baby started taking on a life of its own.”；？ She took out her Birds of Paradise Damask Stencil.？ She painted the pattern in Pebble Beach and the birds in Duck Egg Blue.？ Marie completed the table with a coat of white wax.？ She commented， “；Now I was feeling this table! In the end I’；m quite pleased with how this table turned out. ”；？ We think her project looks awesome!

St. Patrick’s Day is around the corner and I wanted to do a simple craft with my kids. We had so much fun making crafts for Valentine’s Day, it only seemed natural to do something for St. Patrick’s Day. My daughter loves chenille stems (I called them pipe cleaners when I was a kid), they could keep her entertained for hours. If you ever have to go on a flight with young children, just bring a pack of pipe cleaners. It will keep them occupied for some time.To make these pipe cleaner shamrocks, all you need is pipe cleaners.
