A Stenciled Wall (or two)!

Wednesday, April 20, 2011 |

First off, let me just say I came across this photo while perusing google for an idea to stencil, and I fell in love.

Good Girl Gone Glad did a fantastic job on her wall!!  I wanted the SAME.


So, after finding my inspiration from Good Girl Gone Glad, I had to find a trellis stencil which I found on this lovely blog Jones Design Company.  She did her office (picture below) with this trellis stencil and she provides a stencil printout HERE.


I moved my daughter into her own room, and the paint colour was driving me crazy!!!  I had to do something about it right away!!  It's not a terrible colour, but very boring for a fun, hip room makeover!

So I took some paint that I had left over from a project last year (they told me to get way too much!)  as I had enough leftover paint to do my whole daughter's room!  


Okay so I printed the stencil out on the computer, and traced it onto a cardboard cereal box. 


Then I drew the chalk onto the wall in the pattern I wanted.




After many hours of painting I came away with this...


And this...


And this...



It was worth the time!  I am so pleased and my daughter even says she LOVES it!  Ya, she better after how long it took me!

I will have more posts with progress from her room later.  
This took a long time, I need a break now.  
I may just go lay on her floor to stare at it for awhile (wink).

That looks amazing, especially against the turquoise - come do mine, please? ; )

How did you get the lines so even and straight?

And yes, I think I did just leave this comment on the prior post by accident. I am still getting used to the whole comment link at the top of the post thing... Oops : )

This looks absolutely beautiful!

Nicolette @ Momnivore's Dilemma said...

Stunning. Wow. That must have been painstaking to chalk and paint, but well worth the effort. I tried something similar on a smaller wall and it was a colossal fail. I rushed it!

If you have a moment today, please share this with my readers @Creative Juice Thursday Hope to see yours among all the amazing projects!

Maryann @ Domestically-Speaking said...

Ok so I am actually attempting this on my wall right now and im noticing that drawing the stencil doesnt take very long but that its the actual painting that takes forever. What did you use to paint the lines? Im just using a small brush but it seems like there has to be something that would be faster. The help would be much appreciated:)
