This plaster rope border stencil serves many purposes and is very versatile. Use it alone to create a repeated rope border around a room, plaster two of them (one on top of the other) with 4″ in between. Paint that inner part a different color than you wall color, then plaster a more ornate design in the center. By doing this, you are actually “horizontally” framing the more ornate design.
Use it to create smaller rectangle frames on your kitchen cabinets to make them simple, yet more beautiful than plain cupboards. Paint the inner frame a slightly different, yet coordinating color. How about placing a raised plaster “frieze” in the center of that frame now for those of you who love the look or more detail?
Furniture builders LOVE this design and order it often since they can use it on doors, drawers, backs of chairs and benches, even on wooden chests.
Standard house moldings tend to be about 3″ in height so we made this one a little shorter so that you can now add it to your existing wood baseboards to create a more detailed look without replacing your baseboards!
Rope stencils look great in a room that is nautical or beach themed.
Use it as a border around the room with plaster and then stencil it with paint on an area rug. So many ideas!
