Fresh Contemporary Wall design Makes a Statement

prints charming

Can you guess where the inspiration for the wall design came from ….

If you guessed the comforter, you’re right. When I’m looking for ideas, I look for patterns, colors, and texture. It might be in a picture, a rug or in the bedding. Sometimes it is right in front of you and you don’t even know it.

I loved the pattern on this comforter and visualized how amazing it would look on the wall.

So, I took a picture of it and sent it into Faux Effects International, my go-to stencil experts and had a custom stencil made. They named it Ultra Link Set.

Here’s how I created a custom wall finish

applied two skim coats of  Silver Taupe Luster Stone as my base.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product. It’s not only stunning it’s easy to work with.

Here’s a link showing you how to  apply Luster Stone


I used  Silver Metallic Set Coat for the stencil. Use a firm sponge roller. Roll your sponge roller in the paint covering it completely.

Roll off most of the paint onto a paper towel. I know that sounds silly; why would you take the paint off? You’re not taking all the paint off, you are just offloading the excess. If you have to much paint on the roller it will bleed through the stencil. You want your pattern to have crisp lines.

Before you start applying the paint to the stencil, make sure you line it up. There are little holes along the side of the stencil called returns. I used white chalk to mark them on the wall. The chalk is easily removed with a damp rag. If you don’t take the time to do this, your design may end up crooked. For more information on how to apply a stencil, go HERE.

When applying the paint press lightly going over the area 2-3 times as needed.

You don’t have to cover it completely. As you can see there are high and low areas on the design. I did this intentionally.

    What a splendid idea! I love stencils, they allow "wallpaper" to be used but are super easy to change. Never thought to get a custom stencil made. LOVELY!
