I wanted to add some interest to my boring coffee bar wall and thought this faux tile project would be perfect.The first step was to paint my wall with a coat of white paint and let it dry completely before proceeding with the stenciling. My backsplash area is 12” in height and I used a 6” stencil so I could stack two complete stencils.
Faux Kitchen Tile
Here is a fun project to add a faux tile backsplash in your kitchen using a stencil. It only takes a couple of hours but makes a big impact.
Supplies for this project are white paint, black acrylic craft paint, stencil brush, painter’s tape, and of course a stencil. This is the stencil I used J Boutique Stencils Wall Moroccan Tile Stencil T0055 for DIY Wall Decor Furniture Floor Craft https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DXRN9RC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_WRdvDbVX019W7
This stencil was so easy to work with because you paint the first row of petals for your next area so you have a guide for where to line up the stencil-no guessing or worrying about not being level.
Use black acrylic paint for the stencil. Make sure you don’t have too much paint on your brush, I tap the excess off on a paper towel before painting. Work in a light circular motion.
First four stencils done! I left a 1 inch border on both ends of my wall because I didn’t want any partial stencils.
I stenciled around the outlet as much as I could.
It took me about 2 hours to finish the stenciling and I really love how it came out!
