The order has been placed and now I am waiting…waiting for my Chain Link Stencil. I have been wanting to add a stencil somewhere in our house, and I thought our half bath would be just the place. Earlier this year we painted it Benjamin Moore Sea View Blue. I love the color, but the room is still kind of boring.
I had a hard time deciding which stencil to order. Eventually I would like to put a damask stencil in our living room, so I wanted to select something different for the powder room. I hope I like it….if I don’t Kevin already told me I have to repaint the room (he painted it blue the first time).
Here is another metallic example from Project Queen (via Pinterest); I like how she used a metallic taupe:
Another option would be just using white, which would be much more graphic and bold. This entire room from Vintage Revivals is beautiful (you should probably check it out), and the stenciled wall is so cute (found via Pinterest):
Perhaps more of a tone on tone, like this wall (from etsy.com via Pinterest), would look good:
I am about 80% sure I will do the more subtle metallic option. I am thinking about a pearly white or champagne. I need to get a few options and try them out on a sample board.
What do you think? Subtle or bold? Have you stenciled anything? Any tips for applying the stencil and painting?
Hopefully once the stencil is up I will be more motivated to find a small storage unit for this room and make a new curtain…I have been thinking about doing this for months….and months. Is there anything you have been meaning to do forever?
Maybe I need to stop typing and start doing! Have a great Wednesday
