Do you want more privacy in your home without losing your view or feeling boxed in? Coming up with creative and stylish ways to keep our festivities out of the view of neighbors can be challenging. Fences and walls can create privacy, but tend to block light and views, and can be expensive. Luckily, you now have an affordable and stylish alternative that not only offers privacy, but also looks good while doing it.
Painting or etching your doors or windows with Royal Design Studio Stencils is the perfect way to keep your light, view, privacy, AND your budget. Before you pull your shades down, check out these DIY solutions using stencils…
Katelyn Peil painted our Spanish Tile Stencil Set directly onto her glass windows and door so that the design acts as a privacy screen. Stenciled glass is so much prettier than hanging a curtain, plus it still lets in the light!
Here's some Flower Power! Malenka Originals stenciled these glass doors with our Bloomers Flower Stencils and Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®. Her shop is now packed with personality and catches the eyes of potential customers!
Terra Britt says, “I am so happy with the Tribal Wall Stencil! My fiancé and I live in his grandmother’s home and have been slowly renovating. I applied a frosted glass spray paint to the stencil on the shower door window. The wall stencil works really great this way and is much faster to do when doing larger designs. I would definitely use your stencils again!"
The Chicken Stitch Border Stencil can easily go country chic when stenciled in a farmhouse style home. Karen Oakley etched this design onto her glass windows to add a little pattern and privacy.
The Turkish Emblem Wall Art Stencil creates a lavish Middle Eastern design and focal point on this door window. Kathy Boyd etched the glass so that it creates a frosted effect and adds some privacy between each room.
This DIY project took a different approach and traced our Moroccan Inlay Wall Stencil onto Fairfield World Fabric. Then the fabric was cut and hung on the inside of these doors, making a gorgeous privacy screen for this patio!
To create a rustic yet modern look in your home, we suggest blending colors and paints of both styles. My Patch of Blue Sky painted this living rooms screen a rust orange color. Then to give it a contemporary and shabby chic flair, she let our Esperanza Lace Tile Stencil shine with the help of Modern Masters metallic paint.
