Used my Silhouette Cameo to cut a stencil out of clear contact paper (inexpensive alternative to stencil material). I put contact paper (do not remove backing) on the cutting mat and let the Silhouette do all the work. Used the Silhouette hook tool to remove the negative spaces of the stencil.
Applied the stencil to the barstool, pressing firmly. A gift card makes a handy tool to do this. Using a stencil sponge, I lightly applied paint. After leaving in place for 5 minutes, I then carefully removed the stencil. A clear coat of sealer could be applied, although I didn't.
For a less permanent option, you can also use colored vinyl rather than stenciling, but I didn't think of that before painting. :)
Hubby and I have lots more free time now that we don't have to guess which barstool is ours! LOL
