DIY FAUX HEADBOARD WITH ROYAL DESIGN STUDIO STENCILS


With the holidays being here and friends coming to visit, I want my house to look its best so I was super excited to find out about Royal Design Studio Stencils, available in stunning modern designs. An easy way to spruce up the house for the holidays is by using paint. Adding stencils makes the transformation of a simple wall or furniture piece even more impressive to guests! When my mother-in-law and sister-in-law come to visit, they usually stay in Katie’s room. This year, she was gifted with a queen mattress set, however, we did not have space in the room to put any kind of bed frame other than a boring plain metal frame that no one sees. To dress up Katie’s bedroom for overnight holiday guests, we decided to use the gorgeous Starry Moroccan Night stencil by Royal Design Studio Stencils to create a faux headboard for her bed.
The slim “headboard” takes up very little space in the room but makes a big impact with Katie’s new colorful geometric bedding. When she decides she no longer wants these, we can move them to another room to use as canvases to decorate the walls.
Since we needed to cover the design on the canvases, we gave them each 1 coat of white gesso. The gesso covers the ugly design that was on the canvas and gives the canvas tooth so the paint we’ll be stenciling on will adhere properly.
