Stencil Painting On The Wall: Guest

Ralna at House By Numbers tried stencil painting on her wall and it turned out quite nice.

So today I took an hour of my day and finally started the project I’ve been thinking about for weeks now to try in our guest room.  I totally stole the idea from here, and just made up a stencil with some card stock.  I then used my $2.50 acrylic silver craft paint from Wal-Mart and a little craft paintbrush and took the plunge!  Originally I thought I would do it all across the back wall – but now I’m thinking I like it in the corner and will most likely do one strip on the other wall kitty-corner across the room because I do still want to add my headboard and don’t want it to be too much.  But I’m pretty happy with it – think it made a big difference in adding interest to the room and was definitely within the budget at this point! 🙂





I like how it turned out!  Very modern and fun!  How do you think it turned out?

  8. this bedroom. Plan to do mine similar. While browsing online for “silver paint” I came across a website that directed me to your blog. What color paint is this on the walls?
