Thinking about wallpapering your kid’s room? Think again! Wallpaper is known to damage walls and limit your creativity to the very few (and expensive!) choices there are. So what’s a better alternative? Wall stencils, of course! Rachel of Shades of Blue Interiors decorated her little girl’s room without damaging walls and with her own chose of color or pattern. She choice our Esperanza Lace Wall Stencil from our large selection of stencils and pretty pink paint. Let’s watch how she used wall stencils to create this lace wallpaper pattern for her daughter’s room in this video tutorial:
Read below for the supplies she used and the 7 easy steps on how to stencil walls with lace wallpaper pattern:
- Esperanza Lace Stencil
- Painter’s tape
- 4” sponge roller, tray, and handle
- Thick-body interior paint (she used Benjamin Moore Aura Interior Paint)
- Paper towels
- Stencil brush
- Spray adhesive
- Adhesive remover
- Drop cloth or plastic
Step 1: Prepare your painting area by using the drop cloth or plastic to protect the floors from accidental paint drips. Use painter’s tape to attach the stencil onto the wall, evenly along the ceiling line.
Step 2: Evenly load the foam roller with paint.
Step 3: Use absorbent paper towels to “offload” or remove excess paint from the foam roller to prevent bleed under when stenciling.
Step 4: Roll the paint onto the stencil. Use light and even pressure.
Step 5: Remove the stencil once the paint is dry.
Step 6: For trim, room corners, and edges, use a spray adhesive on the underside of the stencil. Position the stencil on the wall so that the registration marks are lined.
Step 7: Use a stencil brush to paint the corners and edges with the stencil. Use a pouncing motion to paint the design.
Repeat Steps 1 through 7 until the entire room or entire wall is covered. Use the spray adhesive remover to clean the spray adhesive off the stencil if it builds up after several uses.
