Adding Quotes to Furniture with Stain DIY

You can Achieve a great look on your painted furniture using vinyl lettering.  You can cut your own or purchase pre-cut vinyl quotes. This particular quote is by Dr. Seuss and I purchased it from for very little money.

Add Your vinyl Lettering.


Apply Stain right over the vinyl.  I always use General Finishes Gel Stains.  They are easy to use and they have lots of choices of colors.  My ultimate favorite is the Java Gel Stain, and that what was used on here. #GeneralFinishes #DrSeuss


Let it Dr for 24 Hours then use a Razor blade to lift off the vinyl lettering.

I used a Barn Red Color Paint by #MissLillianChockPaint and a Brown Glaze to give it a antique look.
