Stencils Can Transform A Boring Dining Room Into A Fabulous Space
Good morning, my stenciling friends! If your dining room is looking a bit dismal these days, Cutting Edge Stencils wants to help you enjoy your meals in a beautifully decorated room. Stenciling an allover pattern on a wall is not only easy to do but the results are also spectacular. Wall stencils offer more design flexibility than wallpaper since you can choose your favorite pattern and your desired colors to create the perfect combination for your space. Oh, and did we also mention that a stencil can cost a fraction of those popular designer wallpaper patterns? Yup, stenciling is budget friendly. Let’s take a look at a deliciously stenciled dining room.
We’d like to introduce Amy, the home decor enthusiast and DIYer behind the blog Amy’s Casablanca. Amy spotted this trellis design on HGTV and fell madly in love. She vowed that she would find a spot for it in her house.
The pretty pattern is wallpaper by F. Schumacher. Amy selected her dining room as the lucky winner of this project and started to plan her project out. Since she knew that designer wallpaper is expensive, she planned to put it on the top three feet of her dining room walls and place white wainscoting below. After doing the math, the wallpaper came out to about $900. Yikes! Rather than watch her design dreams wilt away, Amy put on her DIY thinking cap. That’s when she discovered the similarity between the coveted designer wallpaper and our Trellis Allover Stencil pattern.
The stencil cost $39.95 which is a fraction of what the wallpaper would have cost. Once she was armed with the Trellis Allover Stencil, Amy was ready to begin her project. She used blue painters tape to adhere her stencil to the wall and painted the pattern using a dense foam roller in a silver metallic called Tin by Martha Stewart. Here she is working through the stenciling process.
After the stencil was complete, Amy added white wainscoting below the stencil. Then she purchased two chandeliers from Ballard Designs and a dining room table from Restoration Hardware. Ready to see how her dining room turned out? Here it is:
We love how this stenciled dining room turned out and we’re happy to see that Amy was able to achieve the look she loved for a fraction of the cost.
