A Perfectly Coordinated Stencil Project: Accent Wall & Bombe Chest

A Perfectly Coordinated Stencil Project | Stencils by Royal Design Studio

During the month of February Paint + Pattern is featuring stenciling projects for our master bedrooms. This is perfect timing for me because I recently refinished all three large pieces of painted  furniture in my bedroom. They went from orangey teak to weathered grey and I couldn’t be happier with the look. But, we have very little pattern in the room, so I decided to tackle two small coordinated stencil projects that are right next to each other: the tiny inset created by our faux fireplace mantel, and the top of the bombé chest that is positioned directly in front of it that I painted with Chalk Paint® and Craquelure ages ago.

How about you? Do you have adjacent surfaces that would benefit from a dual, coordinated project? Even if only one is needed in your room, either of these stencil ideas has so many applications. You can adapt this idea to stencil an entire focal wall behind the bed, and compliment it with a coordinated stenciled headboard or dresser. I chose the lace stencil to repeat a lace theme found in a piece of glass art that we will be working on soon on Paint + Pattern. The French script stencil is dear to my heart for two reasons: my Dad used to teach me these phrases in French when I was a little girl, AND hubby and I were married on Valentine’s Day!

The best part is that these projects will not take much time at all. I think I spent more time gathering the materials than I did working on them!

Stenciling the Accent Wall

Lace Stencil on Wall

Find  the center of the accent wall you are stenciling and mark it with a pencil mark. Tape off the wall and baseboard. Place the center of the stencil in position on the wall and tape in place.Use the directions that arrive with the stencil to understand how to move and repeat the stencil pattern across the wall. Dip the tips of the brush into the Royal Stencil Creme paint and offload excess paint onto the paper towels. Use a swirling motion to stencil through the pattern. Use one hand to hold the stencil tightly to the wall as you go along. I began at the right and moved to the left, into the corner. Let the paint dry for a few minutes before repositioning the stencil to avoid any smudging.

Find the center of the top and mark with a light pencil mark. Or, let the very in-your-face kitty assistant do it. Find the center of the stencil at top and line up the stencil over the pencil mark. Measure to be sure that the lines of the script are straight with the edge of the chest. Plead with kitty to find a new favorite spot. Promise treats.

As always, dip just the tips of the brush into the Royal Stencil Creme paint and offload excess paint onto paper towels. Use a swirling motion to stencil, filling the pretty script letters evenly with paint. Use one hand to hold the stencil as you move along. Let the paint dry for a few minutes before repositioning the stencil. Line up the stencil as directed to repeat and complete the pattern to the edges as needed.
