I LOVE Cutting Edge Stencils! They have the best selection of quality stencils I have seen on the web. I was very excited to try out the Polka Dot Allover Stencil on this little alcove wall in my baby’s room. It was just screaming for some kind of attention!I decided to make it a little grungy, since it’s for a little boy, and polka dots can look girly if they are too perfect. I chose a gray and didn’t go too thick on the paint. The stencils are really easy to use, especially with the stencilrollerand level that they also sell on their site. To keep a continuous design, just line up the stencil on the previous dots and you’re good to go. I found using a thumb tack along with the painters tape helped keep it on the wall a little better.Here is an easy to follow video to show you how to apply the stencil;
About an hour and half later I had my polka dot wall and I was in love with the results.I put the rocker and his toy shelf against the wall and he went right to work taking everything off the shelf. Don’t you just love the added personality the stencil added?It will be easy to paint over when we end up moving, and since it’s a stencil… I can do it again in his next room.There are so many possibilities with the polka dots, furniture, fabric, floors and of course more walls.
