Use Stencil Designs To Create A Faux Tile Backsplash
Good morning, my Cutting Edge Stencils friends. A tiled kitchen backsplash can be super expensive and a hassle to install. Don’t worry you don’t have to toss your pretty patterned tile dreams aside. We want you to consider using a tile stencil to achieve the same effect. Today we’re sharing a kitchen makeover with a stenciled faux tile backsplash using our Fabiola Tile Stencil. Let’s take a look…
We’d like to introduce Joeleen Davis, a creative Cutting Edge Stencils fan. She has been working on a kitchen update. Here is what it looked like before the update.
Since this was a budget friendly kitchen makeover, Joeleen decided to paint a faux tile backsplash using the Fabiola Tile pattern. The faux tile pattern is based on traditional Portuguese Azulejos tile designs.
The wall was already painted white so Joeleen was ready to start stenciling once she had her pattern in hand. Repositionable spray adhesive is always very helpful for a project like this because it can help hold the stencil in place.
She used a two inch dense foam roller to paint the pattern in a dark gray hue. Be sure to roll off any excess paint on a piece of paper towel. Too much paint will cause the design to bleed. Use a stencil brush to paint the harder to reach spots like along the counter and under the cabinets.
Once the entire design was painted, she carefully removed the Fabiola Tile Stencil from the wall to reveal the design. Seeing the painted pattern is always the fun part! Joeleen commented, “The painted grout line makes all the difference in the world! We are getting close to having the kitchen done :)”
When the wall was complete, Joeleen painted the cabinets, replaced the island, and updated her appliances. She then stepped back to admire the Fabiola Tile pattern. Are you ready to see her stenciled faux tile backsplash? We are about to flood you with some beautiful eye-candy!
We love the stylish flair that this Spanish inspired tile pattern gives this kitchen space. Joeleen posted, “Did you know stencils are for more than just furniture? That isn’t tile! I know right? Say hello to my new painted backsplash!”
