Stenciled Entryway Makeover

I recently painted and stenciled a friend’s entryway. Laines Entry - B&A

The goal for the entryway was to brighten it up and make an inviting statement.  It is the first room guests see when entering the house.

I painted the room a pale gray and used an even paler gray for the stencil.  We found the stencil at Royal Design Studio.  It is the Marrakech Medallion Stencil.

It mimicked the glass pattern on the entryway doors, so it was a perfect match.

I stenciled the entire room, and once I was done with the full stencil, I cut the stencil into two pieces – one was about 1/3 of the stencil while the other was 2/3.  This allowed me to easily stencil some medallions that “ran off” off the wall.  I did this along the baseboard, ceiling and around the doorways.  My goal was to make it look like wallpaper (but without the commitment).

The room looks completely different thanks to a little paint – and a stencil!

    Wow! What a beautiful change! Did you plan where you were going to put the stencils, or did you just do it randomly? I’m too lazy to plan…but afraid to do it random. lol
