A Stenciled Office Accent Wall Featuring the Beads Allover Stencil
Good Morning, my DIY decorators! You know that spare room that you’ve been neglecting in your home? Yes, Cutting Edge Stencils is talking about THAT space. Whether you actually work in your home office or it’s a space reserved for your digital check-ins, we have the perfect stencil in mind to help make it shimmer. Today, we’re sharing a stenciled accent wall featuring our new Beads Allover Stencil.
We’d like you to meet Jennifer, the creative DIYer behind the blog Indigo’s Sugar Spectrum. She started reading some home decorating blogs and before she knew it, she was bitten by the stenciling bug. Jennifer decided to stencil an accent wall in her home office. She purchased our Beads Allover Stencil, a new contemporary stencil pattern. First she painted her walls a color similar to Benjamin Moore’s revere pewter HC-172. Then she stenciled the pretty bead pattern in a color similar to Benjamin Moore’s cloud cover OC-25. She had this to say about her newly stenciled accent wall, “I love the overall look and couldn’t be any happier!” When asked if she would do it all over again, “Oh Heck yeah! I just LOVE LOVE the way it turned out. I think the stencil was of great quality, and found lots of info on the Cutting Edge Stencils website to make the project as easy as it could be for a first timer.” Awe, we’re blushing from all of her kindness!
Tips and Tricks for Stenciling the Beads Allover pattern
Jennifer offered up some tips for stenciling the Beads Allover pattern since stenciling this pattern is as easy as 1,2,3!
1. Flatten and Secure the stencil to the wall with painters tape. In Jennifer’s case, she taped up the Beads Allover Stencil to the accent wall in her office. Also, our Clip-On Stencil Level is a helpful tool to ensure a straight stencil design on the wall.
2. Use a stencil brush to paint the pattern on the wall. Jennifer preferred using a stencil brush for her project. Also, be sure to blot off the excess paint onto a folded paper towel until the brush looks almost dry. The key to stenciling is using as little paint as possible. Too much paint will cause the design to bleed and smudge.
3. Carefully remove the stencil from the wall and repeat. Simply line up your stencil with the previously painted parts, check for level and continue.
VOILA! It really is that simple to transform the look and feel of your room. Don’t forget to take a step back and admire your beautiful stenciled wall.
