Silhouettes and more

I love silhouettes of all kinds, I hand-painted these on these wooden boards.
I forgot to get the Before photos, there were roses painted on them when I bought them,
I didn't like the roses, but the details on the wood were good.
So I painted all over them with Coffee Cake by Taubmans and then rubbed a Folk Art Acrylic (Nutmeg) on with my fingers, before painting the silhouettes with Black Acrylic.
Both my hutch and buffet have been distressed, I love the results.
 Also added these keys and hung them on the door knobs, love the look.

The distressing of your hutch and all look great Rosy. Thats what I am trying to talk my husband into letting me have a go at one one of our pieces of furniture. (I am starting smaller hoping to evolve!!) Love your stencilling, looks really effective.
