Stencil Wall

You may recall that I've wanted to do a stencil wall in our Master Bedroom for some time now (I even have the stencil -- since February!!).  Well, I just stumbled upon The Hills blog (via Just a Girl) and now I really really really want to finish the project!! What do you think? Here is their master bedroom:

She used a handmade stencil and pearlescent craft paint...

And here is my current bedroom:

(except my lamps are a dark smoky teal, and my lamp shade DIY has yet to be completed -- haven't even purchased the material yet -- and I just purchased a duvet cover, and we replaced the bird pictures with wedding prints)

Originally I thought I was just going to use a clear coat (polyurethane?) for the stencil... now they have me rethinking the idea.... Maybe I'll go with our trim color, so it stands out, yet still works with the room. What do you think?


  1. I think you're so brave! I'd just cop out and use wall paper. I change my mind way too often. I LOVE the sample pictures you posted. Go for it! I hope the project goes well. Can't wait to see when it's done!

  2. Krystal, thanks for posting on my blog and mentioning it here today! I'm so flattered :) I would be happy to give you any tips or info that might help you if you do this project. I also came across this wallpaper from Lowes which might be an easier option (but you can't just paint over it if you want a change): http://www.lowes.com/pd_332822-37364-30-402_4294929280+5003697_19_?productId=3281040&Ns=p_product_prd_lis_ord_nbr|0||p_product_quantity_sold|1&pl=1&currentURL=%2Fpl_15%2B25_4294929280%2B5003697_19_%3FNs%3Dp_product_prd_lis_ord_nbr|0||p_product_quantity_sold|1&facetInfo=$15%20-%20$25.

    Email me at haleybethhill@gmail.com and I will answer any questions you might have!

  3. That is amazing! You totally have to do it! Love love love!

  4. Totally digging this because a.) this is the exact same pattern on a couple of chairs I recently finished recovering and b.) I come from a painting background and am all for patterns on the walls...GO FO IT!
