Hi fellow Hometalkers!

Using a wall stencil is an affordable way to add dimension and interest to your space. Take a look at how I did this great feature wall in our bedroom using a stencil that created a beautiful lace-like pattern.

Measure your wall

Measure your wall that you’d like to stencil. I place my stencil in the exact middle and work my way down and out. To move on to the next row, you simply line up the pattern’s edge and secure in place. I always use painter’s tape to secure in place.

Carefully load the paint

When loading paint onto the roller, make sure that you do it sparingly. I use a piece of cardboard to offload some paint on there to make sure it’s evenly distributed on the roller.

It’s looking good

One row down...

Finished wall

This lace-like pattern is so beautiful.

Feature wall

This stencil is the Esperanza Stencil by Royal Stencils. It’s lace-like pattern is so beautiful. I love the way it turned out. It definitely changed the whole look of this room. What do you guys think? I would love to see if anyone else has done this too!
