Whether your dining area is open-plan and includes the kitchen, or you have the luxury of a separate room, think like an interior designer and add some trendy DIY touches using stencils for walls and floors to stimulate the senses. Set your dining room with the colors and patterns you love, and you'll never be hungry for style satisfaction again. Check out these dining room makeovers that use wall stencils or floor stencils…
Here's a DIY dose of stencil inspiration from Erin's Art at City Farmhouse where she used our Anatola Tile Stencil on the floor of this trendy dining room. The blush pinks and soft blues look SO striking against the dark navy-gray wall!
Dare to dine in this jaw-dropping dining room? Creative Wall Designs turned this space into a show-stopper with our Elsabet Trellis Wall Stencil. This wall stencil is an especially dramatic design when stenciled on black, and the off-centered oval shapes are perfect when painted with a surprising spot of metallic shimmer. This pattern and paint combination definitely gives this dining room the look of Old Hollywood glam!
This dining room makeover features a metallic green ceiling that shimmers and reflects the ambient and natural lighting. The walls above the chair rail feature an embossed Flourish Allover Wall Stencil pattern in dark chocolate and metallic green. Below the chair rail, Ruby Rose Studio has created a tortoiseshell motif using layers of mottled Venetian plasters. The white trim provides a striking pop of contrast.
Plain, clear glass gets an upgrade! Our Endless Vine Furniture Stencil is used with a reverse glass stenciling technique on the underside of a dining table designed by Heather Bruno-Sears. Stenciling glass table tops is a great way to decorate the surface with style, but also to hide any imperfections, aging, and those pesky food spills! You can keep a glass dining table top looking beautiful for longer if it is stenciled.
Tiffany Alexander stenciled the Acanthus Trellis Wall Stencil with a Metallic Color Foil and metallic plaster. The walls look like embroidered fabric!

Tawni DeYoung says, “We wanted an inexpensive option for flooring, so we decided to use porch paint and the Starry Moroccan Night Stencil to spiff it up! After caulking, we used 2 coats of primer, 2 coats of white paint, and then a charcoal layer with the stencil. We finished it off with a charcoal border and Polyacrylic sealant. We are so happy with the change!"
MD Haney Designs wanted to save enough money to do a major renovation to her dining room. During that time, the room was in limbo: stripped floor, bare walls, etc. As everyone knows, saving money takes time, so paint and Floor Stencils became her best friend in the meantime! Here’s what she did: She scraped, patched and cleaned her concrete floors. She applied two coats of Old White Chalk Paint® onto the entire floor and used Paris Grey Chalk Paint® with our Chez Ali Moroccan Stencil. Lastly, she used Annie Sloan Lacquer to seal the floor.
The Finishing Touch could have used expensive wallpaper in this dining room, but instead she used our Mansion House Grille Trellis Wall Stencil to create the same look but with the exact colors her client wanted. Her client is pretty happy about the affordable price too!
