A DIY Stenciled Accent Wall Features The Tamara Trellis Pattern
Welcome back, my DIY super stars! Cutting Edge Stencils hopes everyone had an awesome weekend. The beautiful springtime weather is bringing us lots of springtime cheer. We love watching the plant life come back to life and fill our exteriors with an array of colors. Do vibrant colors make your heart go pitter patter? We can’t get enough. Just like this colorful tangerine and turquoise kitchen we posted on our facebook page.
It’s infused with cheerful colors, so it’s hard to forget! Well, we are not going to fall short on providing you with colorful eye candy today. We have an awesome living room makeover using stencils. Let’s take a look…
We’d like to introduce you to Kashia, the home décor enthusiast and fabulous DIYer behind the blog Dandy Giveaway. Kashia and her husband move a lot and there have been a lot of decorating rules with each of their rentals. That was until recently when they relocated to Utah. They are officially planting their roots and calling it home. The thought of staying in a home for a period longer than eight months had Kashia overjoyed. She quickly tossed out every paint and decorating rule that was ever enforced and began to make the place her own. The first stop was the living room since the family spends the most time there. Here is the living room before it was stenciled…
The red accent wall added a nice splash of color to the room but Kashia felt like it was missing something. She fell in love with the look of patterned accent walls, and she knew it would be the perfect way to add personality to her new home. She ordered our Tamara Trellis Allover Stencil, one of our newer Moroccan designs. First she painted over the red wall using a color similar to Benjamin Moore’s simply white OC-117.
Once the wall was ready for stenciling, Kashia called over a friend to complete the project. Together they found the project easy peasy! They used blue painters tape to adhere her stencil to the wall. Then she used a foam roller to paint the stencil pattern. Kashia chose to paint the stencil pattern in a color similar to Benjamin Moore’s teal tone 663, a rich mid-tone teal that evokes the cool, serene waters of the Caribbean.
Ready for the room reveal? Here is her new living room complete with a stenciled accent wall in a spunky turquoise color. Kashia completed the cozy yet colorful space by adding a zesty tangerine couch to the mix. The space is now full of pattern and personality. She had this to say about her project, “I am so amazed and excited with the finished product!”
PS. She’s hosting a free stencil giveaway ($50 value) over on her blog, so go enter!

Hi everyone, just joined here. Am an Artist, am in love with arts but uniquely interested in wall decorative painting.
I have a very important question.
What are the necessary requirements for preparing and painting a base wall? And also what kind of paint is supposed to be used as base paint before stenciling with acrylics? Thanks a million.
