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!

After living in New Mexico (closer to my family) for the past 5 years, I’ve decided that I’m not a desert girl after all.

I’m moving back to the state that I felt most at home in: Idaho.

So I’m on a new adventure!

The first order of business is to get this house totally in shape to sell in the spring.

I started off by hand painting the entire stucco house myself this summer. With that all done now, my focus is to do all the transplanting this fall and then this winter to work on the inside.

By April/May, I’ll list it then find my property in Idaho.

In the past 5 years, I’ve turned this acre of desert sand in a to a green oasis (unusual for this area). But it’s come out beautiful!

For instance, here’s the back yard when I moved in:

How it looks today:

The cute benches were made from scrap lumber and all the cushions covered in the same cheery fabric.

What a lovely place to relax with the sound of the water to soothe you.

My point for telling you all of this is that with a vision, you can turn your own home in to the home of your dreams in so many ways. Don’t let anything stop you.

Though I will sell this house, I know that the new owner will enjoy the fruits of my labor, and the really cool thing? I get to take all I’ve learned here and make my next home my “forever palace”.

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?

I LOVE what the Domestic Diva did with our Raised Plaster Aspen Tree Stencil.
Just beware….she uses caulk to create the trees and though that’s creative, if you ever wanted to remove your trees (for any reason), it would be difficult to get the caulk off the walls. However, use the same technique with pre-mixed joint compound, you can always sand and scrape them off if you wish to change patterns on that wall.
Check out her tutorial!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

VERY CAREFULLY!!!!
When I came home from shopping, this is the scene I found! My husband adding the top to my 25′ Raised Plaster Aspen Tree. I screamed with fear, but he simply grinned and continued to work.
It spanned two whole floors and looked incredible!
