VIDEO TUTORIAL: Everything You Need to Know How to Stencil a Black & White Kitchen Tile Backsplash with Royal Design Studio Wall Stencils for Painting

Kitchen Backsplashes not only protect your walls, they also add color, pattern and texture. However, the overwhelming amount of materials needed for a new kitchen or a kitchen remodel can quickly make your costs skyrocket. Save precious dollars by cutting down on costs while maintaining high style. We’ve been seeing a LOT of home decorators opting for Tile Stencils to decorate their backsplash rather than pay for expensive tiles (plus the cost of installation and a professional!). Watch the video tutorial below to learn how to paint your own DIY kitchen backsplash using Tile Stencils

Supplies:

Step 1: Paint your kitchen backsplash with a white base coat and allow to dry. Center and secure the tile stencil with a level and painter’s tape.

Step 2: Load a paint roller with black paint and offload the excess paint onto paper towels or contractor’s paper. Offloading helps you use minimal paint so it does not bleed under the stencil.

Step 3: Stencil the tile design using a light to medium pressure.

Step 4: Remove and reposition the tile stencil below the first painted repeat and continue stenciling your backsplash. Once you get to the countertop or cabinets, use your hand to bend the stencil into the corner and use a small stencil brush to paint into the corner.

Hi Marnie! As long as the paint you use is effective for walls, you may go about cleaning it as you normally would with soap and water :)

Hello, I am thinking about stenciling our backsplash with the Toledo tile stencil. Can I just paint it on the coated wall? Is there a varnish/coat that will seal it from oil splattering etc.? Or is that not necessary? Thanks.

Hi Jen! The silhouette or fall out tile shaped stencil come with your Toledo Tile Stencil purchase is what you would paint first in the base/alternating color and then the Toledo Tile Stencil on top of that. Then to alternate, you would not use the silhouette or fall out and use the Toledo Tile Stencil directly onto the surface. You can see how they were used in this video tutorial: https://www.royaldesignstudio.com/blogs/stenciling-tips/painting-stair-risers-wallpaper-stencils

Hi Donna! Our stencils are durable and bendable so that you can stencil into corners. You can also cut your stencil too but we recommend bending. You can see a video tutorial about this here: https://www.royaldesignstudio.com/blogs/stenciling-tips/wall-stencil-corners-edges

My stencil is larger than my backsplash, do I cut it to fit or what?

I just purchased the Toledo tile stencil to use in our kitchen for a back splash. I have the PDF with instructions on how to do alternating color backgrounds but I don’t get it. Do you have any videos showing this technique? Thanks!
