Flea markets, Craigslist, and even a neighbor’s curb can yield vintage treasures that make a house sparkle. But knowing what to do with those pieces can be intimidating. Better Homes & Gardens featured 2 different ways (out of many!) to upcycle decor using Royal Design Studio Stencils in their Flea Market Style 2017 special issue.
Shades of Blue Interiors has been decorating her romantic home with flea market finds, but when she can't find or afford the real thing, she does it herself... including stenciling her little girl’s room with our Esperanza Lace Tile Wall Stencil! These intricately stenciled walls actually make this tiny room appear bigger. And stenciling made it simple for this happy momma to take otherwise boring white walls and transform the room into something so soft and beautiful without spending a lot of money! Make sure to check out the stencil VIDEO tutorial on How to Stencil a Lace Wallpaper Pattern to get this look for your daughter (or yourself!).
Flea market style is all about bringing dated secondhand finds back into fashion. You can easily do this to thrift finds or your old furniture with our Rockin Roses Stencil! Do you love how they stenciled the underside of this reclaimed glass table with frosted glass spray paint?
