Dreaming of a gorgeous patterned floor for your kitchen? It's Stencils to the Rescue! Let's face it - we spend a lot of our time in our kitchen and it's always preferable to be surrounded by a space we love, colors that lift us and design that makes sense. Our friend Tasha from Designer Trapped in a Lawyer's Body did not have this space. In fact, this is her kitchen -- or as she calls it, 'NOT.MY.STYLE'. She had a limited budget and big design dreams and we here at Royal Design Studio are tickled pink that we were able to help in making them come true.
Tasha was faced with badly damaged bamboo floors. She didn't want to sand and stain them as it was out of her financial reach and plus, she didn't like the idea of stained wood anymore. She did have a serious yen for painted wood floors and both she and her husband also wanted pattern. Together they excitedly chose the clean, contemporary look of the Hollywood Squares Stencil from the Allover Modern Stencils Collection.
Using a light taupe floor and patio paint as the base, they stenciled with a medium tone gray over that. Tasha used a foam stencil roller and avoided bleed-throughs by keeping a very dry roller while stenciling. The whole kitchen took her 6.5 hours to stencil. Can you imagine going from blah to GLAM in less than a work day? That's the beauty of Stenciling!
Our stencil-loving hearts swoon! We think Tasha did an amazing job and we just love, love, love her kitchen transformation! Know how much the entire project cost? $700!!! Frugal and Fab - an amazing job combination. Be sure not to miss her stenciled floor project blog post for all the complete details as well as her kitchen redo project details, too.
