Wall Happniness

Wall Happniness

As per yesterday’s post, I’ve been formulating ideas for Scarlett’s room on the cheap’er’.
My thought collective got a boost this morning when I logged onto Pinterest and saw this…
…that there folks is a bathroom and STENCILED WALLS!
I’ll say it again…the walls are done with a stencil…no wallpaper was involved.
Are you amazed?
I am.
Go HERE to see more of the project.
After seeing the bliss that is that bathroom, I linked over to the stencil website where it was purchased and discovered it…
Willow Pattern stencil
…along with SO much potential fabulous.
In the mood for framed chinoiserie panels…
Panel No 1 stencil
…here’s the above one done in gold…
…or perhaps leopard is more your thing…
Leopard Repeat  stencil
I’m quite partial to just going whole hog on the animal front with this number…
Leopard stencil
…rawr.
I’m also rather fond of Aphrodite…
Aphrodite stencil
…Arrows…
Arrows stencil
…dogs (hello Best in Show wallpaper look-a-like)…
…Gothic Repeat…
Illustration graphic
…Baroque…
…and this pretty peony number…
Large Peony Repeat stencil
Clearly the possibilities here are endless.
The question is whether or not I have the patience and/or resolve to tackle this sort of immensely laborious project.
I’m thinking yes on that front…maybe not for Scarlett’s ginormitron room but perhaps for a bathroom or two…my brain is seeing the Chinoiserie one (called Willow pattern) done on a blushy pink base in either white or gold…hello gorge.
How about you?
Dreaming of stenciled walls after seeing this goodness?

    To make the job easier, use a small foam roller. Make sure it’s almost dry & then roll it on. It goes so much quicker than using a stencil brush & stipelling it on.

    I LOVE me some good stencils, I stenciled my nephews nursery and it took FOREVER, but it was super easy. I used a foam roller and I think it helped also that my stencil was a bit more organic– so little bleed marks weren’t really an issue.

    Here’s a link so that you can see my project!

    I’m so happy to see that my labor of love has been a source of inspiration! That company has some amazing stencils. I love the idea of the blushy pink with gold. That would look so over the top gorgeous. The room was so hard to do though that it’s going to take a bit more time for me to forget what a pain it was and move on to another stenciling project;) I hope you tackle it though…I’d love to see how it turns out.

    I did a stencil in an art niche. It took a while, but the results were worth it!! Now I am tempted to do that Chinoiserie stencil too.
