The BEST and PRETTIEST Before & After DIY Home Decor Projects using Royal Design Studio Wall Stencils, Floor Stencils, and Furniture Stencils

I wanted to cover the badly yellowed vinyl tile in the kitchen. It always looked dirty! I had always wanted encaustic tile, but without removing the cabinets, it was going to be a very expensive proposition to replace the VCT floor. I used: Toledo Tile Stencil, Zinsser Bulls-Eye Primer, Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® (Old White, Paris Grey, Coco, Duck Egg Blue, and Antoinette), Royal Stencil Brushes, foam roller, and Annie Sloan Floor Lacquer. What a transformation! I love how it sets off my vintage stove. This was my first stencil project.” – Lynn Lasser

This antique sideboard was a diamond in the rough. My client and I thought this French Love Letters Furniture Stencil was icing on the cake for this beauty! Sweet simplicity! It will be now used as a master bath vanity with white vessel sink.” – Kimberly Konrath

When my husband and I were building our home, we decided to turn the Formal Dining Room into a Formal Parlor.  It took over a year and a half of living in our new home to finally decide on how to decorate the room. I based my project using the Acanthus Trellis Wall Stencil from a picture on Houzz with black wallpaper and gold filigree design.  After all is said and done, it turned out awesome and we have gotten many compliments on the room. Now it’s just figuring out what to do with the rest of the house!” – Sandy and Tim Prust

These before pictures don't do justice to how ugly the pink ceramic tile in our master bath was. I finally got brave enough to try stenciling the floor, and I am so glad I did!  Two coats of primer, two coats of gray porch and patio paint, and the Zahara Moroccan Wall Stencil in a lighter and darker gray, finished with 4 coats of polycrylic sealant.  This was my first stencil project - go big or go home!  It looks amazing and my master bath looks very spa-like!” – Jennifer Bodoh

After buying our house, we decided to remove the popcorn ceilings which left the ceiling in the master bedroom less than prefect.  So I decided to stencil it.  Using the Adana Abstract Floral Wall Stencil and using Royal Stencil Crème in Pearl Oyster (which I love!), I stenciled the ceiling.  The paint color and stencil design is amazing.  The color is slightly off from white with added silver.  So pretty and looks different at different angles.” – Jen Franco

I chose a dark grey wall paint ("French Gray" by Glidden) and light green ("Lagoon Green" by Glidden) and pale pink ("Barely Blush" by Glidden) for the Aztec Triangles Wall Stencil. Thanks for the great inspiration for our new bathroom!” – Melanie Becker

This Parlor Lace Wall Stencil is my favorite stencil application I have completed. For this project I did Ralph Lauren gold metallic paint over flat black.  I did this in someone's apartment in downtown Chicago.” – Jennifer Higgins

I recently bought a Victorian home that was built in 1900 but has been well kept. I was going to use wallpaper but the humidity would peel and damage the wallpaper so I decided to stencil my dining room. The Majestic Medina Damask Wall Stencil turned out beautifully done and I have had so many compliments.” – Aleen Huston

I really wanted to spruce up my bathroom without breaking the bank… so I stenciled the floor using the All The Angles Stencil and Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® (Pure White and Napoleon Blue) and we’re instantly transported to the modern era of design! Corners and edges are tough- and there’s nothing to be ashamed of by making a solid border :) I had a great time and will certainly attempt more projects!” – Anne Witsken

I just finished repainting and stenciling my dining room. My dining room was a deep red color that I felt was becoming a bit outdated, so I started by painting it a dark warm gray, Chelsea Gray by Benjamin Moore.  Then I used the Ribbon Lattice Wall Stencil with shimmery gold craft paint. I used a small foam roller and found the stencil to work beautifully! It left crisp edges was flexible enough to go around the corners, while being strong enough to withstand lots of bending. I'm thrilled with the results! The gold shimmer changes with the light. It's gorgeous! Thank you for your wonderful product!” – Jill Oliver

Dream On Lettering Furniture Stencil on a sideboard by Fatima Luz Paixao

 

I was commissioned to stencil a 5 wall dining room for a client of mine. Together we chose your Anika Ikat Wall Stencil. The base wall color was Sherwin Williams Impressive Ivory. The stencil design was done in Metallic Teal Royal Stencil Creme. Then I used Antique Gold Royal Stencil Creme to hand-paint extra details into the design to create another layer of dimension. This was a big transformation and the client was super pleased with the results. I LOVE that your stencils are high quality and have registration marks!” – RehabArt

I found this adorable table at a garage sale and purchased it for $5.00.  It was sturdy and other than some scratches it was in great shape and just whispering, "Please make me pretty."  So I thought your Scrollallover Furniture Stencil would be able to do that for this little table. Now it just screams, "Look at me." – Sue Wolf

The concrete patio had dark spots, cracks and cover up jobs that looked terrible. So I knew I needed a patterned stencil to paint over it so that the messy concrete was less visible. First, I stained the concrete a dark blue and chose a lighter Moroccan Sand color for the Atlas Allover Moroccan Stencil. I was a bit nervous as I had never stenciled before. But I got it the hang of it and watched my project come together slowly but surely! I am absolutely in love with the patio now and spend more time than I'd like to admit in that hammock admiring the stencil work! Thanks and I love your product!! Best purchase I've made in awhile :) “ – Laura Hogan

I never painted anything in my life before using the Flourish Allover Stencil and your how-to video was very helpful. It was time consuming due to my patio size but very easy to do if you follow the instructions.” – Amen Israel

Hi Machele! We recommend using Porch/Patio paint or Annie Sloan Chalk Paint for your outdoor concrete :)

I live in Ohio and sometimes the winters can be brutal. What’s the best way to keep a cement patio from chipping and losing the design, fading?
