If you follow me on Periscope or Instagram, you know that I have recently stenciled our living room. It has been really fun and I wanted to show YOU how to stencil a wall (the easy way).
The whole job could be daunting, or even sound overwhelming. BUT, I did my whole wall by myself in 5 hrs, with an hour and half break.
Let me give you some tips that will help your stenciling go a lot smoother.
I was lucky enough to have Cutting Edge Stencils contact me. I received a stencil of my choice.
At first I wanted to stencil my vintage cupboard. BUT, then I thought of how fun it would look on our living room wall.
I painted it Ocean Mist from Clake and Kensington right after we moved in and before I started a blog.
First of all, Cutting Edge Stencils are high quality. They aren’t like the stencils you buy at the craft store. They are heavy thickness and easy to use.
There is a link in the directions to watch their Youtube Video. Definitely worth your time to watch!
You will also receive a paint roller a stipple brush and my personal favorite-a level!
Here are my tips on How To Stencil a Wall (the easy way)
1-Read ALL the directions that come with your stencil.
2-As you are adding paint to your roller or brush, use very little paint, like I did with my stenciled burlap sign.
3-Use a quality paint tape to hold your stencil in place. No cheap stuff. Your stencil will continue to fall, and will take you twice as long.
4-USE the level that will come in your Cutting Edge Stencil package. It will help your whole project to be easier.
5-Enjoy the process and have fun!
Stand back and enjoy your hard work and creativity.
I wanted something to tone down the blue wall. It was a little too bright for me.
The paint I used for the stencil was Fusion Mineral Paint. The color is called Lamp White. It has a gray tone to it. Perfect for what I was trying to create.
Can you tell how much I like my “new” wall? REALLY, it was easy and before I started I decided I would take my time. I wouldn’t rush the process. I really think that with quality products, you can’t go wrong.
A HUGE thank you to Cutting Edge Stencils for my Alyssa Scroll stencil and the tools to make my wall exactly what I pictured. I was compensated for this post, but ALL opinions and ideas are completely mine.
I hope you learned something today about how to stencil a wall. Cutting Edge Stencils hundreds of choices for you to choose from. From modern to Moroccan to flowers to ceiling medallions.
