Stenciling is a inexpensive but stylish way to add shape and depth to a wall. There are several modern stencil designs available, which makes stenciling a good alternative to wallpaper.
Using paint you can dab the figure from the template onto the wall. By dabbing the paint you prevent paint from seeping under the stencil.
Everything you need for stenciling
- Template brush
- Stencil tape or painting tape
- Small foam roller
- Small paint brushes
The fun thing about stenciling is that you can easily create your own pattern! Besides walls, you can also decorate furniture with a pattern.
Stencils can be used several times. Maybe the purchase is almost as expensive as wallpapering, in the long run stenciling becomes cheaper and cheaper.
