I can’t believe it was over two years ago that I shared this newel post …
It seriously boggles my mind to realize it wasn’t just a few months ago, but when I went in search of that original post about the post I found it in January 2017!
That’s not at all the point of today’s blog post, but I just had to say that out loud. Time really does fly.
So, apparently I painted this post two years ago. It ended up with a fabulously chippy patina. I just had it leaning in the corner of a room as a sort of architectural salvage decor piece. Sometimes it was in the piano room, and sometimes the living room.
While I was stenciling the piano last weekend I saw it and thought it could use a stencil or two as well.
I started with this ‘antiques’ stencil at the bottom.
Then I used the same stencil that I used on the little Mariner’s chair that I painted a couple of weeks ago to do two more sides of the base.
Finally, I added a portion of another stencil to the top.
I think the post has just a little more character now and it looks great just hanging out next to the cupboard that holds the ‘good junk’.
What do you think?
