A Stencil Pattern Can Decorate A Pantry Accent Wall
Good morning, my Cutting Edge Stencils friends! It’s time to take control of your pantry in a stylish way. Stencil patterns are an easy and affordable way to freshen up a dated space with a bit of personality. Today we’re going to share a pantry makeover featuring our Japanese Peonies Allover Stencil. Come take a look…
We’d like to introduce Stacy, a creative DIYer and the blogger behind Blake Hill House. Stacy has a charming home with a butler’s pantry. This small service and storage room between her entry and dining room had been painted green. Over the years, previous owners had made updates that took away from the charm of the older home. Here is what her butler’s pantry looked like before:
Stacy has been working on updating the space yet keeping its historical charm with one DIY project at a time. You can read all about her room updates on her blog but we are going to focus on the stenciling. The first thing she did was paint the space using the same white paint color she had used in the entry and dining room.
Stacy wanted to add a pattern behind the sink. She had this to say about wallpaper, “Sadly, high-quality wallpaper in beautiful prints is very expensive. Every time I get past the thought of spending the money, all those dirty, sweaty wallpaper removal memories come to the forefront.” Since wallpaper is expensive and difficult, she went with the obvious choice for adding a pretty wall pattern, a stencil design. Stacy had browsed our large collection of stencil patterns before selecting the Japanese Peonies Stencil. This pretty wall pattern is based on trendy floral wallpaper.
With her stencil in hand, she was ready to start her project! . She used blue painter’s tape to hold the Japanese Peonies pattern in place. She poured her craft paint into a foam tray and then painted the pattern using a stencil brush. Stacy chose to paint the foliage green and the peonies in a coral hue.
If you are recreating this project at home, be sure to brush off any excess paint to eliminate bleed. After each section of the stencil is complete, simply untape it and reposition to finish the pattern on the wall. It can be helpful to clean the stencil in between uses. For more information on how to stencil, please check out our stencil tutorials.
Once her stenciled wall was complete, Stacy stepped back to admire her beautiful floral pattern. Let’s get to the fun reveal. Are you ready to see how her stenciled pantry turned out? Here it is!
Stacy had this to say about her stencil project, ” This is my favorite part of the room. The stenciled wall prevents the Butler’s Pantry from looking too stark, and the cabinet doors now blend in with the original cabinets on the opposite side of the room. ”
