Here was the wall before.
I used two different stencils for this wall. Here is one of the stencils. It's from Innovative Stencils.com #1008. They have the best prices on stencils I have come across so far.
Here is the other one. Also from Innovative Stencils.com #1015. I really love the look of this one.
I used the two stencils together to create my own design. Just kind of winged it on that part.
I taped the stencil to the wall and used a roller to paint over it. Bing, bang, boom...easy!
Here is how it looked after I finished the first round of stenciling. I let that dry overnight. Then I used a wet cloth and the color "Cuban Plaza" (Valspar) to wash over the top of the stencil.
Just dip your wet (damp) cloth into the paint and rub it onto the wall in small circular motions. I wanted some of the base coat color to show through so I just did a light coat of the "Cuban Plaza" color. Looks like this when you're done.
Still soft looking. And that's pretty much it! Hope all that made sense. Oh and, I painted a 12" boarder around the stenciled wall, to frame the bed area, and all the other walls in the room a cream color, "Sunset Nude" (Valspar) sounds perfect for a bedroom doesn't it! HA!
Isn't it crazy how much difference a can or two of paint can make?
