This Guest Bedroom Paint Idea Has Style That Soothes

Thinking about painting your wall?  Make a statement without the fuss of wallpaper by using a stencil!  One of the Normandy Designers painted her guest bedroom using a birch stencil pattern, and the results were fabulous!

What you’ll need:

-Paint and small paint roller


-Painter’s tape


Estimated project time:  6 hours per wall

1. Paint the wall white

2. Select stencil pattern, Ann selected a birch woods pattern from that was 2 x 3.5 ft.  A pattern like this that repeats is fairly simple to execute and gives the effect of a wallpaper.  To find the stencil used in this guest bedroom makeover, click here.

3. Select paint color for the stenciled area, Ann chose nimbus gray by Benjamin Moore (color number:  2131-50)

4. Tape the stencil on the wall using painter’s tape or masking tape.

5. Paint over the stencil, moving it and re-taping it accordingly.

Now that you’ve started with upgrades around your home, it’s time to tackle some larger scale projects. Schedule a meeting with a designer to get started!
