- Timber Tree Bonnie Christine Wall Stencil
- Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®: Coco, Old White, Antoinette, Scandinavian Pink
- Royal Stencil Brushes: two ½” and one 1”
- Sea sponge, painter’s tape, paper towels, level
Step 1: Paint your accent wall with a base coat mix of 1 part Coco Chalk Paint® and 1 part Old White Chalk Paint®. Allow to dry.
Step 2: Use a level and painter’s tape to place and secure the tree wall stencil to the top center of your accent wall.
Step 4: Load another ½” stencil brush with Antoinette tinted with a little Scandinavian Pink Chalk Paint® and offload the excess onto a paper towel. Stencil the medium and remaining small tree branch designs.
Pro Stencil Tip: Protect the branches you don’t want to paint by masking them off with painter’s tape.
Step 5: Load the 1” stencil brush with Coco Chalk Paint® and offload the excess paint onto a paper towel. Stencil the 2 large tree branch motifs in the stencil repeat.
Step 6: Remove and reposition the stencil using the registration marks built right onto the stencil. These marks will help you align the stencil perfectly to the next repeat every time.
Step 7: Repeat Step 3 through Step 6 until you repeat and stencil the entire accent wall.
Step 8: Replace the tree wall stencil back onto the very first repeat. Use painter’s tape to mask off the areas around the large tree designs. Load a damp sea sponge with the base coat color and offload the excess paint onto a paper towel. Dab the sea sponge onto the large tree branch designs that you painted with Coco Chalk Paint® earlier. This will add beautiful texture. Repeat this step with the entire wall. Your tree wallpaper design is now finished! Tree-rific!
