Walls Stencils, Plaster Stencils, Painting Stencils, Plaster Molds

Huge selection of classic stencils for elegant home decor.

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!

Barbara emailed me one day saying she had a lot of cigar boxes that were too good to throw away. She wanted to give them a face lift and create uses for them. So she set out to find a great design for the tops of those boxes.

She used our Raised Plaster Chantilly Floral Stencil over the top.

I love the bright color and the placement of the design. Barbara shows you that even larger stencils can be used on smaller projects by allowing excess portions of the design to simply be eliminated. I love the backgrounds she did on these boxes before plastering the raised design. Ah….but she went a step further. Look at what she did to the inside!

Each box used the same design but was done in different colors with different backgrounds.

What great creativity and how much fun she must have had doing these wonderful boxes. Think of all the uses for trinkets, jewelry, candies, etc!

Thank you Barbara!

Many of us just hate winter. That is, unless we are skiers that look forward to the slopes and a hot cup of chocolate. But I love winter because it gives me time indoors where I can focus on giving my interiors a fresh, updated look before Spring arrives.

Try a focal wall with a wallpaper stencil and paint! The cool thing about stenciling a wall is that you can simply paint over when you tire of it or want to change your decor.

Try a fresh, spring time look with our leaf wallpaper!

Or use one of our lovely tile stencils to give your tired, linoleum floor  new life or simply use our

Midland wallpaper stencil as an all over design like this customer did:

Being forced to stay inside can result in some wonderful new looks to give your spring time a great new feel!

The creative gals of two chatty chicks had an adorable idea for fall.
They first painted a mailbox deep green then used our Raised Plaster Pine Branch and Mold Stencil Set to create the pine branches you see on the top of the mailbox. The pine cone mold comes with the stencil set and is used with plaster of paris or Durhams Water Putty to create dimensional pine cones.
They began by plastering the pine branch over the top area of the mailbox. You can save yourself tons of time by pre-tinting the joint compound with dark green paint. The compound will dry lighter, producing light green pine needles.
Once the pine cones were dry, they painted them light brown and glued them over the raised pine branches on the mailbox.
To finish this cute project, they turned the mailbox on it’s end and filled the opening with fall colored silk flowers and leaves.
Wouldn’t this be adorable as a table arrangement or on your front porch next to the door?

Margaret Tarkington knew exactly what she wanted to do on the exterior of her home and it had to be cheery and colorful! And what she did feels like it right out of a Bavarian village!
Using our Raised Plaster Art Deco Flower Border Stencil with just paint, she first painted the exterior trim with dark green paint then added the stencil design in lighter green for the body of the border and then brilliant red and yellow for the flowers.

All the windows and doorways were done in the same manner.

What I loved about this set of windows is that she decided to paint the frames between the panes of glass with the same lighter green she used in the border design. Set against that dark green background really made this set of windows come to life.

Keeping the stencil design above the doorway only allowed her the creative use of paint she’s done to create this welcoming entry. Picking up the lighter green again, and buttery yellow of the flower centers, she brightened up the doors to create a real focal point.
I honestly just wanted to get on bended knee and applaud her for this wonderful make over of the exterior of her home. It’s unusual, creative and so cheerful! Thank you for letting me share Margaret! You did a spectacular job!

Michelle Cavanaugh decided to give this old curio cabinet a new, updated look with silver paint and our Raised Plaster Parkland Posey Stencil.

She first added the raised stencil to the upper sides of the cabinet then painted the entire cabinet with silver paint.

The raised design gave it even more decorative appeal. I love the elegance this piece now has and obviously, Michelle is very proud of it. I can see why!

The question “can you use plaster stencils with paint?” comes up all the time. The answer is Absolutely! We use our plaster stencils with paint regularly. What you will simply find is that our plaster stencils will be the most durable, high quality painting stencils you have ever owned!

Table-Before

It started out as a dump site find. Solid wood, round, with a single broken leg. Now, how could I resist? I hauled it home and surveyed the damage.

A little wood glue and clamps over night fixed the broken leg and I was ready to get started!

I gave it a good sanding with my electric palm sander and primed it top to bottom.

I then added raised plaster stenciling with wood putty to the sides of the top.

Once dry, I painted the entire table jet black and hand painted the raised designs with metallic gold craft paint.

Using our Raised Plaster Astana Medallion stencil with standard acrylic paints. Yes, you can certainly use any of our raised plaster stencils with just paint.

I centered the stencil on the round top and gave it a gorgeous design.

The table legs and trim also go a lick of gold metallic paint to finalize a beautiful make over of this table.

Now, it looks like a super expensive piece you might find in a specialty shop!

Our front entries are always the first thing one sees from the street that stand out (or should).

Make your entry door something special with raised plaster stencils!

Here, I used our Raised Plaster Chaumont Panel Stencil to add detail and drama to the panels on the front door. 

Giving the raised design a light brushing of metallic gold paint made that door something truly elegant!

plaster_stenciled_door_close

Now the front door also matches the interior doors since I did the same design on those as well.

See the project here.

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.

silver_layer_7

I first used metallic silver paint to randomly stencil branches.

gold_layer_7

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.

Cabinet Before

Cabinet Before

Oh how I hated this cabinet in the master bath of my home in Idaho. Layered barn wood, to me, is meant more for an out house!

The rest of my home was elegant so I just had to do something about this situation.

The thing was that the cabinets were well made of super great wood so I decided rather than to replace, them, simply “re-do” them.

Chipping_Barn_Wood_S

I removed all of the doors and drawers and went to work on the garage floor ripping the old wood out so I could cover them with a new, flat wood surface.

Oak_inserts_S

I used 1/4″ oak panels to replace the barn wood.

Stencil_with_roller_S

I painted the cabinet the same cream color of the walls, then painted all the doors and drawers a rich brown color. It was the perfect backdrop for metallic gold stenciling.  

I used a small roller to stencil our Elegance Wallpaper stencil on to the new surfaces.

Stenciled-cabinet-panel_S

It was the perfect design!

I loved the new cabinet, but it needed something in the center of the doors so I used our Ornate Round Plaster Mold to cast a plaster piece for the very center of the large door.

Cabinet Detail

The whole project came out so great that it made me want to do more make overs like this!
