“My project, using the amazing Mansion Fusion Tile Stencil, was done on our glass front porch floor. I was trying to create, an old conservatory tile floor effect. I used 5 different paint colors to give it depth and a handmade look. It was quite a project, but I am enjoying the results, and the feel it created on the porch.” - Angela Profant

“I wanted our guest room to pop. I've always wanted a space that reminds me of Hotel Monaco in Chicago. Instead of putting wallpaper up on one wall I decided to make my own with the Isle of Palms Damask Wall Stencil. We couldn't be happier with the results. I've already started my next stencil project. :)” – Lindsay Schaaf

Maria Bernard painted her flooring with the Palladium Tile Stencil.

“My new dining room floor with the You’re A Star Tile Stencil! Wanted the look of a new rug ... but now have the ease of simply sweeping instead of vacuuming.  Love this!” - Jennifer Waldron


“My kitchen backsplash project is complete. The original backsplash was a tan tile. I stenciled the Subway Tile Stencil design onto it using Benjamin Moore Paint in Stonington Gray for the grout and Behr High Gloss Paint in Pure White for the tiles. I am very pleased with the result and my kitchen is now brighter.

For the fireplace, I stenciled the Bird’s Eye ikat Tile Stencil onto the tile in Sherwin Williams “In the Navy” blue with Wrought Iron Gray painted floor tiles.” - David Kuehn

Wendy York painted her kitchen floors with the Star Quilt Tile Stencil. painted these hallway walls with the Anatolia Tile Stencil.

We use this small space all of the time, so why not make it fun!” – Abby Toppe

“This Moroccan style queen size headboard was stenciled using the Palace Trellis Stencil applied over turquoise cotton canvas and Royal Creme paints in bright gold and copper. A big thanks to Royal Design Studio Stencils for so much inspiration.” – Kat Stanfield

“The floor is stained press wood and not flat and smoothly. Not a usual floor to stencil on. I used the Contempo Trellis Stencil and it was sooo worth it.” – Joanna Brown

Anna Holden painted her floors with the Anatolia Tile Stencil.

Lori Gravink used the Loose Weave Furniture Stencils to paint these dresser drawers.

“This fireplace was desperately in need of a refresh. I started by painting the brick with Sherwin Williams Bunglehouse Blue. Then painted the tiles at the base of the fireplace using Jolie paints and the Maison Floral Stencil by Royal Design Studio. It was perfect way to update the fireplace.” – Megan Reed


 “I painted my bathroom floor and entry way both with the You’re A Star Tile Stencil.” – Angie Scheer

“I used the Polka Heart Wall Stencil and Gold Royal Stencil Creme to paint an accent wall in my daughter’s room. I’m impressed how easy it was to stencil and love the end result.” - Baiba Simanich

Michelle Nielsen painted this hallway wall with the Flourish Allover Wall Stencil.

“I'm so happy with the results. My spouse had no faith and is now converted, and was amazed at the end result as well. To prep, I painted our bedroom wall dark blue. Planning and doing my research per Royal Design Studio’s instructions helped a lot. I watched videos and got the right tools before I began. I also mapped out how I would stencil the wall with the Elsabet Trellis Wall Stencil, knowing that the window in the middle of the room would be a challenge, and saving that for last as I'd have to cut up the stencil toward the end. Anyway, just can't get over the end result. My Mom now wants me to do a wall in her house. I may have a second career. :)” – Joe Chang

“I purchased the Loose Weave Wall Stencil to add some character to our master bedroom. I had never stenciled before so I wanted to select a pattern that would "hide" imperfections if necessary.  Surprisingly it was much easier than I expected.  I used blue painters tape to hold the stencil on the wall instead of adhesive spray. I just needed to use minimal paint so the paint didn't bleed behind the stencil. We are very happy with the result and the stencil pattern made such a wonderful focal piece on our wall.” – Lisa Fox

“We love all Royal Design Studio Stencils and really deliberated before choosing the Shibori Japanese Furniture Stencil.  It was our first stencil project and we learned a lot - but think it really makes our kitchen table a focal point now.” - Thaian Ton & Antonio Galisteo

The Mali Mudcloth Stencil enabled me to transform an old faded sisal rug and give it more life. I had been looking for a replacement for a longtime but nothing worked or was too expensive. And then I saw a post about stencil projects and was inspired to try out a wall stencil on the rug. I’m very happy with the new rug.” – Gabrielle Tierney

“I was looking for a way to update my family room without spending a lot of money. This was the perfect way!! I love it so much, not to mention my husband is quite impressed. Thanks to Royal Design Studio for the helpful tips on their website and the fantastic Toledo Tile Stencil! Hope you love my fireplace as much as I do!” - Shannon Van Tassell
