Wall Stencils Can Add Style To A Farmhouse Fireplace
Good morning, my Cutting Edge Stencils friends! A fireplace update was once considered a huge expensive project. That’s no longer the case thanks to our stylish tile stencils! They make updating a fireplace with a fresh new look easy and affordable. This DIY project is as simple as choosing a coordinating paint color and your favorite tile stencil. Today we’re going to share a fireplace hearth makeover painted with our Augusta Tile Pattern. Come take a look…
We’d like to introduce Michelle Knox, the creative DIYer and blogger for Ellery Designs. We spotted Michelle’s space on Instagram and we instantly fell in love her decor eye candy. Follow her on Instagram so you join the fun! Michelle recently moved into a new home and has been updating it with one DIY project at a time. On that list was her dated fireplace. Here is what it looked like before.
Michelle thought it was blah and boring. Replacing the hearth completely was not an option so Michelle decided to use paint and our stencils to give it a makeover. She browsed our amazing Tile Stencil Collection and selected our Augusta Tile Stencil. This super popular pattern was inspired by traditional Portuguese Azulejos tile designs. Our fans have used it on floors and walls because it can instantly add style to any space.
The first thing Michelle did was clean the hearth to ensure there wasn’t any debris and then she prepped and painted the tiles using Rust Oleum Chalk Paint in White Linen.
Cleaning and prepping a hearth properly is very important for a project like this. With her stencil in hand, she was ready to start stenciling! She used blue painters tape to hold the stencil in place and a stencil brush to paint the pattern in Rust Oleum Chalk Paint’s Charcoal.
After each section was complete, Michelle would un-tape the stencil and reposition so she could paint the entire fireplace hearth.
Once the space was stenciled, Michelle applied a clear matte top coat to increase durability. Are you ready to see how her project turned out? Here is Michelle’s newly stenciled fireplace!
We think she did an amazing job updating the fireplace. Michelle posted, ” Loving the modern farmhouse vibes this update brings to our room! A quick, subtle change but makes all the difference, right?”
