Use Stencils Instead of Wallpaper To Decorate A Nursery
Good morning, my Cutting Edge Stencils fans! Nurseries can be so much fun to decorate. These spaces are for the tiniest members of your home and yet they present big decorating opportunities. Bring a bit of flair and style to your nursery using our wall stencils. Our patterns allow you to customize your space to achieve a wallpaper look for a fraction of the cost. Today we’re excited to share a stenciled nursery that has been designed with loads of love and style. Let’s take a look.
We’d like to welcome back Mysha, the home decor enthusiast and DIY lover behind the blog Remington Avenue. We have been following Mysha on Instagram (remingtonavenue) for quite awhile and she continues to impress us with sophisticated style and love for stencils. Mysha is thrilled to be expecting a baby girl. This loving mama and avid DIYer has been working on making her nursery super stylish. So when it came time to give the nursery walls some personality Mysha commented, “I love wallpaper, but stencils are a more affordable option AND you can truly have a one of a kind look!”
We love how Mysha thinks! She browsed our large collection of wall stencils on our website and fell in love with the Triad Allover Stencil, a crisp geometric wall pattern.
Her nursery walls were painted Dorian Gray by Sherwin Williams. She used blue painters tape to adhere the stencil to the wall and painted the geometric pattern in four different colors. She also used the Clip-on Stencil Level to ensure her pattern was positioned straight on the wall.
Mysha poured her paint into a paper plate and painted the pattern using a dense foam roller. She painted the pattern using Anita’s craft paint in Vivid Pink, Light Turquoise, White and Metallic Antique Gold.
After each section was painted, she would reposition the stencil to paint the next section. She did this until the entire accent wall was painted. Then she stepped back to admire her gorgeous work!
Once the stencil was complete, Mysha decorated the nursery using the colors from her stencil pattern. Ready to see how this french chic nursery turned out? Here it is! Mysha also hand-crafted that heart shaped string art above the crib.
Mysha had this to say about her stencil project, ” Stencils really can be better than wallpaper! They have so many fun patterns and options. I love how my project turned out.” We couldn’t agree more.
