Walls Stencils, Plaster Stencils, Painting Stencils

Huge selection of classic stencils for elegant home decor.

I was completely impressed when Holly Kellen sent me the photos from her furniture make over. Wow! What a difference! She was elated at her accomplishment, saying that “even a beginner can do it”. I loved that!

She used our Raised Plaster Pine Branch Stencil Set to create the raised design.

Here’s her before and after photos:

    

I asked about her process and here’s what she had to say:

“I used Dixie bell chalk paint and did a color wash to add the subtle color, then finished with a coat of DB gatorhide to seal it.

I primed first and then painted using the color drop cloth. Then I applied the stencil branches using joint compound, let them dry, then added the pinecones and let it dry overnight. Then I applied a coat of flat sealer to the whole piece. Then I made a color wash, which is just paint and water approximately 6 or 8 parts water to 1 part paint. I mixed colors coffee bean and chocolate for that. Covered the entire piece and rubbed it down with a lint free rag to create the antique effect. Next made a color wash for the stencil using palmetto, coffee bean, and pinecone. Finally sealed the chest with gator hide”.

Plaster stenciling is so easy and just imagine the incredible looks you can get on furniture, cabinets and walls.

I really love seeing all the different ideas and treatments people come up with when working with our

Raised Plaster Aspen Tree Stencil set

I really fell in love with what Marianne Meyer from Minneopolis, KS did on her walls.

On the second floor of her home, she did two beautiful aspen trees using just the thinner trunk and tons of branches. She then did a darker color wash of brown paint to give the design more depth.

Being a smart cooking and knowing you can use just parts of a stencil design to create something new, she used just the leafy and bare branch stencils to create a little vignette at the stair landing.

The amount of detail that was achieved was awesome and simply a use to many branches instead of just a few and again, using the color wash to bring out the beautiful detail.

But her true master piece was this plaster aspen tree that literally spans two floors. How awesome and incredible is that?

Just lovely Marianne, and thank you so much for sharing with us!

Deborah has been one of our customers for quite awhile and I truly believe the girl is as addicted to decorating as I am.

Deborah used our Raised Plaster Palisades Border Stencil to add a vertical border to her wall in pale gray paint.

She then used the same stencil to add a raised border on her doors.

How lovely and unique is this?

Deborah used our Raised Plaster Floral Medallion Stencil behind this elegant wall sconce and I fell in love!

Then she used our Raised Plaster Arquette Tile Stencil (my absolute favorite!) as a random raised design on a long, blank wall.

I would love little more than a personal tour of this creative gal’s home. Thank you Deborah! You know I love everything you do!

Trying her hand at Raised Plaster Stenciling, Andrea Delaney wound up doing something subtle and wonderful.

She didn’t say exactly the steps she took to do it, but I do know she applied our

Raised Plaster Acanthus Flourish Stencil to the wall near her stained glass ceiling fixture.

The way I would re-create this look is to allow the plaster stenciled area to dry completely, then paint over the entire wall in her luscious warm brown color mixed with a little clear wall glaze.

When I came to the area of the stencil, I would then use a terry cloth towel and wipe off just the design to reveal a much lighter version of the design.

I love the simplistic approach of creating just one element here and there. But I also really love covering an entire wall in a random pattern, turning the design upside down with every other repeat to create further interest.

Thank you Andrea!

I was just blown away when Colten sent me this photo of an old vanity dresser that was given new life.

Painting it soft cream, our Raised Plaster Parkland Posey Stencil was applied to the sides of the dresser then painted over with the same cream paint. The handles were removed from the lower drawers and gray diamonds were painted over the fronts to give an really cool design element.

All of the ornate ornamentation on this piece and the plaster design really popped out when gray glaze was applied over these areas and wiped off to remove the excess. This piece is now museum worth and how I would LOVE to have it in my all white bedroom!

What did two chatty chicks from https://2chattychicks.com do? They applied our Raised Plaster Pine branch and mold stencil design to a metal mail box, then filled it with fall silk flowers. What a cute idea even for spring time! Simply choose a floral design like our new Plaster Stencil Genesis Floral.

 

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!

 

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!)

Calle’s ReDesign Furniture has discovered our Raised Plaster Stencils! This gal is amazing when it comes to re-designing old furniture and giving it new life. The colors she uses, the placement of the designs and her awesome finishes make her pieces one of a kind.
On this piece, she used our Raised Plaster Chantal Frieze Stencil on the front. She flipped and repeated it for a mirrored image (and to create a larger design) then used just a portion of the stencil design in the very center of the repeat.
