I stenciled the bedroom wall!
Not the master bedroom or the tiny granddaughter’s bedroom but a wall in that blasted guest room! If you’ve been hanging out with me for awhile you know that me and that guest room have had major issues!
Here is the wall before, the entire guestroom reveal is HERE. I couldn’t put my finger on WHAT, but SOMETHING in that guest room really bothered me!
I decided to repaint the wall behind the headboard. The color of the entire room is Behr Silver drop. It’s a beautiful soft color but the wall with the headboard needed something, so I repainted that wall in Behr Dolphin Fin, which I used in several rooms here on Stone House Lane.
But still…it wasn’t thrilling me.
So, why not stencil the wall behind the headboard? On a whim I bought a wall stencil at Hobby Lobby and used Behr Irish Mist which is another one of my colors here on Stone House Lane.
The stencil has instructions, it’s easy. The only slightly tricky part is the first row where you have to get the stencil level when your ceiling isn’t! I used a level every time I moved the stencil and it worked fine.
I used painters tape to hold the stencil because that’s what I used when I stenciled the play room with Cutting Edge Stencils (posted HERE).
But this stencil was flimsy and if I had it to do over I’d use the spray adhesive or just order my stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils!
If you’ve never stenciled the most important thing as far as I’m concerned is rolling most of the paint off the foam roller (onto paper towels or a paper plate) before you roll it over the wall.
You can see that the stencil does make a difference …(the before photo is my first attempt at the room, when I was using tan sheets 🙂 )
I do love the way the wall turned out Peeps. The room looks softer and actually feels peaceful…BUT something still bothers me. I’m keeping an eye open for a comfy chair (on the cheap)to replace the wooden rocker…maybe that will help!
Have a dreamy day my friends!
