Something fun that we like to do at our home is collage frame our favorite family vacations photos. We have all of these frames hanging in our hallway. It's such a fun idea. However, the hallway itself was looking pretty boring with just plain white walls.

Hallway Before


Our boring hallway before...

I was excited to hear about the new line of stencils from Stencil Revolution. I picked out this adorable Pineapple Stencil and knew that it would make a really fun backdrop to my hallway gallery wall. I also gathered up some supplies needed like sponge brushes and blue painters tape.

My Inspiration for the color palate that I chose for my stencil wall came from a picture of a Hawaiian print shirt that I found online. I really wanted my walls to look fun and tropical.

The first step was to paint the walls a solid bright blue. Once my paint was dry I got to work stenciling the walls. Stenciling the walls was a bit time consuming but I found it to be actually really relaxing and therapeutic.

I loved using this stencil, it was really easy to work with and it's a great quality. I thought that I might have issues with keeping it hanging on the wall because it's got a little bit of weight to it, but I had no problems and the blue painters tape held it into place very well.

As far as applying the paint to the stencil there are a few different options to try. You can use a small roller brush, a stencil brush, or a sponge brush, but truthfully what I found to work well was just some cut up pieces of sponge. I just dabbed the sponge with paint right over the stencil. It worked great!

Every time, after I took my stencil down, I gave the back side of the stencil a quick wipe down with a wet paper towel.

It took some time to get it all finished but it was all worth it in the end. I am so happy with how it all turned out. My family loves it too!

Because one project always leads to another, once my walls were finished I decided to add some fresh white paint to all of the trim and molding.

Next it was time to re-hang all of our family vacation photos. I scattered the frames more this time then how they were hanging before.

After

    Not too crazy about the pineapples but I do love the bottom half of those walls how did you get that done? I think I have an idea about it but I'd like to have a close-up somehow if you could put up other pictures of the bottom half of that wall. have an awesome weekend Thanks

    Very cute and cheerful. Makes me think of vacations. Even your “before” was nice.

    First I adde the board & batton (MDF) to the lower 2/3’rds of the walls. Then I painted using Rustoleum high gloss white on both the boards and walls. Next I took some leftover acrylic paint and watered it down and started sponge painting using 2 different shades of the same paint watered down. Finally, I hung my pictures.😀
