Add Interest to a Room With a Stenciled Accent Wall

Do you have a wall that would benefit from an easy painted stenciled pattern? Stenciling one wall (or just half a wall like we did!) is a sure-fire way to give a room a finished, decorated look for just the cost of the stencil, paint and a few hours of your time.
We love how our wall turned out - it finished the room, added a bit more interest and was done in less than a day. Now we're looking for other walls and furniture that we can stencil!
We started with a light-green wall above a board-and-batten lower wall in our master bedroom. Nothing wrong with it, but it had looked like this for many years. A stenciled project seemed like a perfect way to breathe a little life into a tired space.
Using a large wall stencil in a trellis pattern and the same paint as the trim, I rolled the paint on the stencil with a foam roller. Super easy! Using the foam roller (and the tips I outline on my blog) resulted in hardly any bleed-through.

I also cleaned up the busy-looking room and plate wall with just a few vintage ironstone pieces and only a white-and-green color scheme. I love how clean and calming it feels - and how the trellis wall adds interest without adding a busy feeling. Perfect for a bedroom, right?
This was the first wall I've stenciled, and I was surprised how easy it was and how quickly it went! It helps that perfection is never my goal - just the overall effect for our ranch-turned-cottage. :)
