Wall-Before-7

When I moved to New Mexico, there was an acre of vacant land next to me. But when it was sold and a family built their home just 10 feet from my fence, my privacy was a thing of the past.

Wall-Before-7

I put up a lattice wall thinking it would solve the problem of neighbors staring in to my once private back yard, but it wasn’t enough to cut off their view.

I purchased 12″ x 8′ boards from Home Depot and stained them with exterior stain to protect them from the elements.

I wanted a “natural” design so I chose the leafy branch portion of our Raised Plaster Aspen Tree Stencil. It was perfect to create pretty branches on my new wall.

I first used metallic silver paint to randomly stencil branches.

I then added more branches, (some overlapping the silver branches) with gold metallic paint.

Once they were attached to the fence not only did they afford more privacy, but created an out door art wall that I could add ornamental items to.

Plaster stencils aren’t just for interiors, and I’m often asked “can you use them outside?”. Sure! There’s no reason why not. The surprising thing is that you can even use plaster stencils with common joint compound outside! Simply make sure you seal the design with exterior paint.

When I wanted to sell my home in the high mountains of Northern Idaho, I knew I absolutely had to do something with those ugly exterior doors!

They’d become weathered and lost all their finish years before. They weren’t in great shape when we bought the home and after using it as a vacation home for 9 years, they were even worse!

Door Before sml

The harsh weather had created deep cracks in the wood. So since I’m the queen of plaster, I simply filled those cracks with joint compound to create a smooth surface again then sanded the doors. Sure, I could have used wood putty, but I knew they were going to get high quality exterior paint that would finally protect them. 

I plastered the design using joint compound on to the base of each door, painted the entire door with a custom green/blue (to match the beautiful forest!) and then painted just the design with metallic pewter paint to give it a bit of “glam”. What a huge difference!

I love how the design came out.
