Now isn’t Jennifer Brown just clever?

That linoleum in her bathroom needed some punch. So what did she do? She used our Midland Wallpaper Stencil to give it a whole new look!

Wallpaper and floor tile stencils are all the rage these days and I have to applaud Jennifer for her “out of the box” thinking. 

How do you stencil a linoleum floor?

  1. Get it spanking clean.
  2. Prime it first with Zinsers Premium Pro Primer (which sticks to anything!).
  3. Paint the floor with porch and floor paint (I like Behr brand)  in what ever background color you wish to use.
  4. Stencil the entire floor with water based acrylic paint.
  5. Seal the entire floor with Polycrylic sealer (which won’t yellow and is super durable!).
  6. Admire your handy work and your pretty new floor!

What could you do with your old linoleum? Take a look at our wallpaper stencils and

tile stencils to see if they inspire you.

Darlene Drake Varney is just like me. She loves trees on the walls!

She used our Raised Plaster Sapling Tree Stencil on her staircase wall.

With joint compound, it’s easy to create raised designs on walls. Simply spread it over the stencil openings, remove the stencil then let it dry!

Darlene let the joint compound simply dry it’s pure white color and what a display that makes on her beige walls.

Great job Darlene! I have an entire wall of raised plaster Aspen Trees on my living room wall so this just warms my heart! Create just one tree or an entire forest! It’s up to you!

Darla Dawald has been a long time Victoria Larsen customer. I love it when she shares her creations with us. Who wouldn’t be inspired by her lovely work?

She shared these wonderful tables with us where she used our Plaster Lizard Texture Stencil on table tops. Wow, don’t they look high end?

 

Raised Plaster Lizard Texture Stencil

Look how lovely and ultra detailed the surface came out!

In her email, she lists exactly what she did for you:

 

Hi Victoria,

I wanted to share the completed end tables with the VL Crocodile stencil with raised plaster, with you.

I used Snow White general finishes paint on body, then I painted the top in a dark gray. Tinted the plaster with black acrylic paint to make it dark gray. Applied the stencil 3 times across the center then taped off sections to complete the raised plaster stencil on top and bottom 6 times. It took some time but I’m happy with the result.

I then used the modern masters metallics in platinum with glaze. After it dried I used the silver tinted slightly with black as a glaze to achieve the depth. I poly sealed it in satin General Finishes with 4 clear coats on the top only. The General Finishes chalk paint on the body doesn’t require waxing or seal (which I love).

Just listed them for sale.

Feel free to use my photos.

Darla’s techniques can be used on any piece of furniture or even to create a high end looking accent wall in a powder room. I love how it came out! Don’t you?

Cindy had always wanted a tile back splash and when she saw our Raised Plaster Standard Brick Stencil, she knew exactly how she was going to get it without cutting tiles, without mortar, without the mess and hassle.

You could do an entire wall with this great and easy to use stencil! Here’s how:

Simply paint the wall the color you would want your grout to be. Tape the stencil to the wall and smooth pre-mixed joint compound over the stencil openings. You can make the tiles look like stone tiles by simply leaving them more rough, but Cindy smoothed hers.

Once the first repeat is dry, line up the stencil and do it again, repeating this process until you have covered the entire desired area.

Now, give it a coat of polycrylic (which doesn’t yellow) to seal it against dirt and dust and you’re done!

Great job Cindy and it looks so real!

Julie McDowell is becoming an internet sensation with her gorgeous make overs of furniture! 

She partners up with General Finishes to create tutorial videos that you can learn so much from.

Julie did this beautiful buffet with general finishes paint, our Raised Plaster Antoinette Panel Stencil and gold leaf to add the beautiful design on this piece.

 

I love how she chose to leave the arched front drawer in natural wood while painting the rest of the buffet black. She plastered the design then used copper leaf over the design to not only add bling, but to add a metallic element to the buffet.

Julie certainly has an eye for design and I have loved every peice she has sent us!

Check out Julie’s website at: Dandelionsandpoppies

She has lots of instructional videos for you to learn from and become inspired to create your own awesome pieces!

Thank you Julie!

Darla is a long time customer of ours who never ceases to surprise and delight me with what she creates.

Here, she took our Raised Plaster Vertical Leaf Frieze Stencil and plastered it between two archways in her home.

She painted the wall after the design was dry and then did a darker color wash over the design to bring out the luscious detail.

Wouldn’t this look spectacular on a piece of furniture?

Thank you Darla! We’re formally in love!

 

Alexandria wanted to give her dining rooml wall an updated, more modern look. The bright red had become a thing of the past in her mind.

She chose our Large Scabiosa Painting Stencil to doll it up a bit.

First painting the wall light gray, she then stenciled the flower randomly over the wall in two darker tones of gray.

Her black dining set really sets off that new focal wall in a beautiful, modern way.

Great job Alexandria!

Joni McDonald is a creative little thing. Full of fun and lots of ideas. It even comes across in her emails to me.

Discovering plaster stencils has added to her creative side by giving her yet one more medium with which to create.

She pondered, she plotted and planned, she calculated and experimented, and she finally came up with just the right solution for her new need to embellish. She used a plaster stencil on her metal mailbox! Now what a novel idea and Joni is just the gal to come up with it.

Giving it a pretty patina paint finish, she then added the plaster stencil and painted it copper gold. Lovely isn’t it? Now, just imagine the oohs and aaahs coming from her mailman (or lady) the next time they deliver the mail. Joni delivers them some “beauty and originality!”. Joni graciously let me share this adorable project with you and for that, we all thank her! (Bowing to your greatness Joni!)

Joyce Hewton of RusticFarmhouseCharm.com thought this plain little corner of the room would be the perfect place for our Large Tree Stencil Set, and it is!
In the above photo, you can see where she began with the trunk element of the stencil set, repeating it upward then beginning to add leafy branches where ever she saw fit until the tree was completely finished.
It came out great, don’t you think?

This stencil set also comes with a FREE birds stencil to add little birds seated on the branches or flying around the tree.
Dori thought she would give it a try: Our life-sized, Raised Plaster Aspen Tree Stencil Set.

ADoriables-AspenTrees-1

She first painted her walls deep gray then using joint compound, repeated the trunk from the baseboard up to the ceiling. Adding side branches came next then the leafy branches. On the leaves, she added green paint to the joint compound to save tons of work later!

What a lovely addition to this room! Great job Dori!
Remember that all of our plaster stencils can also be used with paints!
