Princess Castle Toddler Desk
I mentioned a few weeks ago, when I shared my son’s dinosaur nightstand, that my kids are anxiously waiting until they can get their own rooms once our home addition is complete. My oldest wants a sports room, my second son wants the dinosaur room, and my daughter can’t really decide for herself but she LOVES all things princesses right now so we are going to do a princess themed room. My daughter is moving into a larger bedroom and I knew I wanted to find her a small toddler table. She loves her play kitchen and I thought a table would be a great accessory to her baking imagination.
I found this adorable toddler desk and knew I needed to add a princess element to it. The multi colored chairs adds a fun pop of color. We decided to add a princess castle to the center of the desk with the help of some new Martha Stewart Products that are exclusively at Michaels Craft Stores! I love an all white table top but as soon as I was stenciling this castle my daughter came over and squealed in delight. I just love how it turned out!
Supplies needed for Princess Castle Toddler Desk:
- Martha Stewart Multi-Surface Acrylic Paint
- Martha Stewart Crafts Stencil Brushes
- Martha Stewart Princess Castle Stencil
- Martha Stewarts Splatter Glitter
I really enjoy using Martha Stewart paint when I am working on family or kid related craft projects! The over 80 colors available are always bright and happy, which is just what we love to craft with. It’s Multi- Surface paint, which means it’s great for surfaces such as wood, terra cotta, glass, and more! They have some fun finishes such as satin, glitter, and even glow-in-the-dark! They pair perfectly with the self adhesive stencils and other painting tools as well.
How to make Princess Castle Toddler Desk:
Place your self adhesive stencil on your clean surface. I debated whether I wanted the castle in the corner of the table or the center but due to the size of the table I like it in the center best. You can choose where you want your stenciled placed based on your surface area.
I used my stencil brushes to create an “ombre” affect with a few different paint colors. The colors I used were Pink Lemonade, Kiddie Pool, Moonstone Purple, and Sea Urchin Purple.
Once I stenciled on my castle I slowly removed the stencil. When the paint was completely dry I added some Splatter Glitter to the pink sections of the castle along with the clouds. I wish I could capture the splatter glitter to show off it’s true shine. It adds an element of fun and layering to the castle. For extra protection, being that this will be a heavily used desk, I painted on a layer of Mod Podge, Gloss to help protect the surface.
This ombre princess castle may be a simply made addition to a white surface but it really adds a pop of fun to the piece and any little princess will love dining around their royal palace.
