Thank your lucky stars because the BEST and most affordable way to decorate your bare walls is here! Wall Stenciling is the little secret that DIY’ers, decorators, and interior designers love to do to save some serious cash. Unlike wallpaper where you would need multiple costly panels, Wall Stencils from Royal Design Studio are durable and reusable so you only need to use ONE stencil to make an entire wall entirely gorgeous. That’s crazy but true! Need to see to believe? Watch the video tutorial below and learn how to stencil a feature wall… without breaking the bank!
- You’re A Star Tile Stencil from Royal Design Studio
- Royal Stencil Brush
- Black interior paint
- Roller and tray, painter’s tape, bubble level, and paper towels
Step 1: Place and secure the tile wall stencil with painter’s tape. We recommend starting the first repeat at the top center of your feature wall. Use a bubble level to make sure the wall stencil is straight.
Step 2: Load a paint roller with the black paint or your favorite color. Then offload the excess paint from the roller onto a paper towel. This offloading technique helps ensure the paint is evenly dispersed onto the roller, you are using minimal paint, and prevention of paint bleeding under the stencil.
Step 3: Stencil the design with light to medium pressure and in a circular motion.
Step 4: Remove the wall stencil and reposition it to the next repeat. There are built in registration marks on the wall stencil so that you can perfectly and easily align it.
Step 5: To stencil into the corners, ceiling line, or floor line you will need to bend the stencil and use a small stencil brush. Follow this helpful video tutorial: How to Stencil into Corners, Ceiling Line, and Floor Line.
Step 6: Repeat Steps 2 through 5, working up, down, and side to side to completely stencil your feature wall with the tile design. And that’s it! Now you’ve got a beautifully stenciled wall with a black and white wallpaper-like pattern!
