Default What I have been up to... Furniture

Hello everyone, I have been pretty busy with some new projects and have lapsed posting on here for a while...
Here is my latest project which is a TV stand that I am doing for my living room. I got this off of ebay along with about 20 other pieces at a Christian Donate shop for $10 (for this piece). It is going under a complete change and transformation which I should be done with by Friday.
Decorative painting and faux finishing was in the dumps for a while but I gave it a new life with going back to my past profession which used to be furniture finish design. The first pic is the design and the last pic is the top finished.

Hi there, how did you make this? Used a stencil, or a print, or did you do the oldfashioned handwork? Looking very distinguished.

Here in Amsterdam I saw a young guy actually draw the best letters on a window, totally freehand. You hardly ever see that.

That appears to be a stencil, but you are correct hand lettering is a lost art that few people can do today here in the US as well.
