Happy Monday!!! I’m not sure how it is in your neck of the woods, but her in Atlanta is cold, wet, and dreary outside.  I figured I would start the week off with a giveaway!

I was contacted a while back by Royal Design Studio to review one of their fabulous stencils! I chose the Large Hollywood Squares and I must say that I am very pleased with the product!

I originally planned to use the stencil in the powder room, but then I realized that I had never stenciled anything before and was a little intimidated.  So one night, I had a dream about stenciling three “panels” on my dining room wall to frame out some pictures.  But again, I chickened out!  Even though I’ve seen  stenciling everywhere, I still felt uncomfortable taking on the project.  Just when I was about to throw in the towel, I figured I would start even smaller and still carry out part of my last idea.

Now that the tree is finally out of my living room, I wanted to do a little something in there just to add some pizazz


I decided to stencil a part of the wall above the french dresser

How lonely does that tray look? Anyway, I thought stenciling a portion of the wall would make the area a little more interesting.  So after measuring and taping off the area I wanted stenciled (with my ScotchBlue painters tape!), I got busy with the stencil

The directions were pretty straight to the point.  Use a little paint, roll off excess paint on a paper towel, take your time.

(these are the supplies I used: towel, small amounts of paint, roller)


(first roll. Notice the small amount of paint on the wall?)

Going over the the stencil several times with light coats of paint will give you the perfect outcome


BUT, if you’re impatient like me, then you will start to think you can add more paint to your roller and everything will be fine.  Notice the imperfections on the left side of the stenciled wall?



In the end, the stencil turned out great! Now I need to figure out if I’m going to frame it or not.  If you haven’t noticed, I’m trying to set up a little bar area on the dresser.  More on that laterSmile

Disclaimer: Royal Design Studio sent me their Hollywood Squares stencil free of charge for my review.  The fact that I love their stencil has nothing to do with it being free, but simply because it’s a great product!

That looks great! If you have any of your wall color paint leftover it's easy to fix any imperfections with a small brush and a straight edge.
