Pennsylvania Dutch Spring Tulip

So, I have this little passion for Antiques Roadshow. Ever watch it?? It's on PBS. I just love all the different pieces of furniture and how they teach you so much about each one. The other night I was watching it online and a man brought it a Pennsylvania Dutch hope chest with the most gorgeous stencils on the sides:

And, I knew I was going to use those stencils for something. 
It turned out to be something really simple. 
I used a robins egg blue background with a light rose chiffon color for the stencil. I didn't actually stencil it....I just free-handed it. 
It's going to be a part of my Spring Decor. 

It definitely brightens up a room!!

I used the same pieces of plywood for this projet that I used for my Apple Blossom and Rooster and Hen painting wood crafts.

I am sharing this party at these funky linky parties:
