Hi everyone! I took your advice (well, the majority) and decided to go ahead and stencil my foyer walls. It certainly is a lot less expensive that wallpaper and easily changed out in the future. The area is only halfway done but enough so that I can share these few pics with you! It’s shaping up nicely!
Stenciling walls is a time consuming project but this has been the second room that I have done (see Ella’s Room and a Gold Stencil). I figured I have a few tips to share on the process and made a tutorial to share.

Wow! You don’t waste any time. I envy the way you stay on track with DIY projects. Beautiful wall.
So funny! Once I get an idea in my head…lol! I had to wait until I had a few days free to give it a try. Waiting for paint delivery for a project so this was the perfect opportunity! Thanks!
It is beautiful. I would love to see a video on how you handle the corners.
Hi Teri – I will try and make one but it is tricky. I have been bending the stencil. However, I think it best to wait until the very end of the project and then cut the stencil in half. It makes it easier to manipulate. I’ll keep you posted! Thanks!
Well you are a painter!! No brainer! Looks beautiful.
This is so true! It certainly is easier for me than trying to wallpaper 🙂 Cheers!
It looks fabulous.
Thanks, Debra! A slow process!
I just love using stencils…. such a great job Suzanne!! Looks awesome!
Thank you, Maxine!
Glad you went ‘down this road’ Suzanne – it’s looking fab 🙂 Just a question if you don’t mind answering it – have you ever tried stencilling on a textured wall? And… if you have, what did you think? Thanks 🙂
Hi Denise – I actually haven’t stenciled a textured wall before and assume it can be tricky. I would suggest more of a sponge roller with a thicker nap to get into the crevices. Best of luck (if you are about to attempt it!). Cheers 🙂
Wow, gorgeous! I love it!

You’re off to a great start, Suzanne! Can’t wait to see the finished room!
Thanks, Cynthia! I am still working on it today!
