Shabby Chic Stencil Art in 4 Easy Steps.
Reclaimed wood decor is having a moment. You can’t look at Pinterest or Instagram without being bombarded with perfectly shabby chic wall art and furniture. This is because it not only looks timeless, but it is environmentally friendly as well. The best part is it’s easy to make. So grab your tools and let's get started!
- 1 paint brush or paint roller
- 4-5 mywoodwall™ panels (depending on the size you want)
- 1 stencil
- 1 utility knife
- Paint (color of your choice)
- 1 baseboard to apply your mywoodwall™ panels to
- Large nails to hang your finished piece.
Step 1: Choose how big you want the stencil to be and build a base with your mywoodwall™ panels. Keep in mind you'll want to start the build on a horizontal surface before you put it on the wall to prevent the paint from dripping. Apply your mywoodwall™ panels directly to a baseboard.
Step 2: Choose a stencil. There’s endless inspiration online if you don’t already have something in mind. We think the wolf pattern looks great with the Deep Space panels. Draw the pattern on a thick piece of paper and cut out the design with a utility knife.
Step 3: Evenly load the roller or paint brush with your choice of paint. To prevent bleeding, be mindful of how much paint you apply at once. You can easily manage excess paint by rolling your roller/brush onto a paper towel or the paint tray.
Step 4: Allow the stencil to dry for a few hours. Once dry, lift the stencil to reveal your design and apply any necessary touch-ups as needed.
Voila! You’ve made your very own masterpiece that’s going to look great in your space. We hope you enjoyed this DIY project. Stay tuned for more How-Tos from mywoodwall™.
