I recently stenciled a wall in my kitchen using Royal Design Studio’s Chez Sheik Moroccan Stencil.
I love stencils because you can get the look of wallpaper without the commitment. They can easily be painted over if you grow tired of them.
The really great thing about this stencil (as well as several of Royal Design Studio’s larger stencils) is that it includes a smaller ceiling stencil to get in the really hard-to-reach ceiling line.
This stencil project wasn’t hard, it just required a little patience and time (and some good music!).
Since I didn’t really have a central point (the doorway is off to the side), I decided to start at the end of my kitchen hood and work my way across the wall.
Your stenciling success will depend on your paint usage. Less is more in this situation! (For this entire wall, I only used a quarter of a pint of paint.) I used a foam roller for the flat areas and a stencil brush for the more difficult areas – like the ceiling line.
Don’t get lazy and stop measuring or using a level. This is what can happen:
I just painted over the section, let it dry, and used my level to make sure the stencil was right this time before I re-stenciled.
And here’s my finished product!
My walls are painted in Valspar’s Cincinnatian Hotel Briggs Beige and the pattern was stenciled in a cream color.
Here’s a Lena photo bomb. And yes, she’s wearing wolf ears.
Go create something!

Sara, loved the stenciled wall. You are so talented and blessed. Thank you for sharing.
Sheila – Thanks so much for the encouragement and comment! I appreciate it so much!
Could I ask you where you found the “fresh baked goods” sign? I love it.
Hi Nancy! We have a local chalk artist in town who made this (amazing) sign. If you’re on Facebook, search “word for word chalk art” and you’ll find her!
I love your wall! I was going to do my dining room with a black and taupe wall covering but now after seeing your wall I think I will do it in cream and taupe. Thx!
Yay! I’m glad you like it, Shari! Good luck with your dining room, and I appreciate your comment!
