Michelle used common joint compound and our easy instructions for pre-tinting the compound to create a stone panel above and around the fireplace.

Her finished design looks absolutely amazing and so REAL! Now, looking at it, could you tell this wasn’t real stone? I couldn’t!
Here’s a helpful hint: When doing a project like this, do yourself a favor and using a level, mark level lines on either side then tape the line with painters tape. That way, your stone design will be level on both sides.
Michelle Flair had an idea for this blank section of wall that sticks out in to her room. She was excited when she found our Raised Plaster Stacked Stone Stencil. It was the perfect solution for adding a realistic stone look to this odd wall.
She used the stencil on all three sides of the wall, flipping the stencil over and matching up the stones to repeat the pattern on the adjacent side of the wall.
Thank you for sharing Michelle!

She first painted the wall the color she wanted the grout between the stone and then simply repeated the stencil over the walls to give that raised stone pattern. A quick wash of pale brown paint mixed with translucent wall glaze brought out even more detail in the stones by collecting in the natural recesses of the dried joint compound.
The corners were easy to accomplish. Simply flip the stencil over backward on the adjacent wall and line up to the previous stenciling then continue.
Now, can you look at that photo and tell me it isn’t absolutely REAL?
