Brighten A Tiny Bathroom With A Stencil

A Stenciled Bathroom Using a Large Wall Stencil

Good morning, my Cutting Edge Stencils friends! Does your bathroom need decorating to give it a little style?  Paint and stencil patterns can easily add character, style, and ambiance to a tiny bathroom.  It can be as easy as choosing your favorite wall pattern and a coordinating paint color.  Let’s take a look at this bathroom refresh featuring one of our Geometric Allover Stencils.

We’d like you to welcome Jessie, the creative DIYer and blogger behind Imperfectly Polished. Jessie’s half bathroom needed a major makeover.  She planned to complete this with one DIY project at a time. Painted wall designs are the easiest way to achieve a wallpaper look but for a fraction of the cost. Jessie browsed our website and landed on the Harlequin Trellis Allover Stencil.  This allover design puts a trendy twist on a classic pattern.

First, Jessie painted the bathroom walls using White Lullaby by Dutch Boy.  With her stencil in hand, she was ready to start the project.  She used Frog Tape to hold the stencil in place on the wall.  Then she poured her paint into a small tray and painted with a dense foam roller.  Jessie painted the trellis stencil pattern in American Know-How by Dutch Boy.

Jessie used our clip-on stencil level to ensure the pattern was evenly placed on the wall. She commented, “My favorite part was the stencil level that came with the stencil.  You slide it on top of your stencil so you can make sure you are stenciling in a straight line.  Genius.”

After each stencil design was painted, Jessie would un-tape the stencil and reposition it until her wall was painted.  She stenciled two walls in the small bathroom. Once the stencil was complete, Jessie stepped back to admire her handiwork.

She had this to say about her project, “Our blue and white stencil keeps the tiny space fresh and bright and we added pops of yellow for a little energy.  I love how it turned out.”  We think her stenciled bathroom looks gorgeous!

    What is the recommended method of cleaning the stencil during and after the job is complete? I use interior latex paint and found it sticks to the stencil and I cannot get the paint off so I have to throw it away. Help please this is getting expensive.

    Hi Spring Whitmer Smith!

    Thank you for your comment. Please take a look at the following video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ValnjCS3ghM

    Typically you clean the stencil with water and a stiff or a soft bristle brush. You want to be sure that you are laying the stencil on a firm surface, otherwise you risk damaging the stencil.

    The key to helping the stencil last is to not let paint dry on to the stencil. So you want to clean the stencil when you notice enough paint build up where it begins to interfere with the integrity of the design onto the wall. You also want to clean the stencil when you are going to stop with the project, even if it is for an hour or two break. Once the paint begins to dry it will harden the stencil and lessen the flexibility, which does result in faster wear and tear. You want to clean the stencil as soon as you are done with the project.

    If you are using spray adhesive please note that you are working with a glue which when it dries it will lessen the flexibility of the stencil. This is normal for glue to do.

    Here is the link to our FAQ on cleaning stencils for more details: http://www.cuttingedgestencils.com/wall-mural-stenciling-faq.html#183

    Hope this helps! If you have any other questions do let us know :)
