Stencil Tile Backsplash

3 Materials
2 Days

Earlier this year, I toyed around with tiling our "breakfast nook" and got as far as ordering samples. I envisioned a pistachio green wall for that retro flare to match our KitchenAid appliances. Fast forward 4 months: I finally did something about it, but not in the way you'd expect! I used the tile stencil and paint I got for a future bathroom project.

This is what the space looked like before. The white walls gave the space a simple and clean look, but it was time for a change.

Pick a stencil pattern

I used a pouncer from a past stenciling project.

Start stenciling from a corner

Use a level to keep the pattern straight. Our ceiling wasn't exactly level and required touch up afterwards.

Keep stenciling!

You will need to bend the stencil for the edges and hand-paint the corners.

    Did you paint your cabinets too? They look totally different in the after pictures.

      I did not! The photos are different due to lighting conditions & photo editing. I would say the true color is somewhere in between - the shadows in the "before" make it look darker and the editing in the "after" lifts the colors. Thanks for reading 😊
