Remove a drawer from the cube, and then unscrew the knob and set aside. Now use the paintbrush to apply a thin coat of matte medium to the front of the drawer—this will help keep paint from bleeding under the stencil. Let dry completely.
Protect your work surface with kraft paper, and then place your stencil on the paper, with the shiny side up. Spray the shiny side of the stencil with stencil adhesive, according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Position stencil (adhesive side down) on front of drawer. Firmly press all over the stencil to ensure a close bond. Tip: You may need to apply new adhesive to the stencil each time you reposition it - check for a close bond before applying the paint.
Use dauber to apply paint. Dab in an up-and-down motion to keep paint from bleeding. Work from the center out. Tip: Dab excess paint onto your kraft paper before stenciling. The dauber should have color on it, but shouldn’t look wet.
Allow the paint to dry completely, then carefully peel away the stencil. Tip: When stenciling a pattern that requires repeated repositioning, let paint dry on the drawer and stencil before you reposition. Repeat steps 1-5 for each remaining drawer.
