We finally cleared out the guest bedroom and gave it a much-needed facelift with a bold Floral Moroccan Tile Stencil. Since we are still in lockdown, and I’m on reduced hours, now was the perfect time to complete this project. Stenciling is extremely budget-friendly ( I came in under budget at only $45!!). Although I already had the white paint from my living room project, it would have only cost me an extra $25 to do so. Ideally, you can complete this project under $75 dollars. It took me about 6 hours to complete (over 2 days) from start to finish, but it was so worth it!
For the bottom layer paint, I chose Valspar Rusted Earth Interior Paint ($26). Since I decorate with a lot of neutral tones, I wanted something earthy yet bold. I bought one gallon of paint but in hindsight, I should have purchased 1 to 2 quarts since I ended up needing only one layer. Althoughhhhhhhhhh, I am excited to use the color elsewhere in my home! *gets inspired*
The stencil paint color I used is the same paint that I used for my living room walls, HGTV HOME by Sherwin-Williams Bohemian Lace Interior Paint. This paint dries to the touch in under an hour and it’s very easy to clean with just soap and water!
For the stencil, I used the Maison Floral Tile Stencil ($14). I was originally going to paint my patio with this, but an interior wall made more sense, given we live in a rental home. I fell in love with this tile a few months back while scrolling through Pinterest. It’s one design that hasn’t left my mind in months. I’m so happy with the way turned out and put together a little timelapse for you to see the process above.
All in all, stenciling is easy to learn, inexpensive, fun to do, and provides you with a rewarding decorating project. If you’re feeling inspired now, make sure to tag me in your stencil wall posts!!
