I have finally finished the DIY stenciling in the loft area of our home! Seriously, this took me so much longer than I had planned and I'm not going to lie it was harder then I though.
With that said it is done and I am very happy with the end result! It is now one of my favorite areas in the house! Here are some tips to make things a little easier for you:
Use a good stencil! I purchased mine through Cutting Edge Stencils on Amazon.
Practice first! There definitely is a little learning curve to figure out how much pressure and paint you should use. I didn't do this and I had to wash the wall and start over. :/
Start on the area of the wall that will be seen the least.
Use a foam roller with rounded edges so that the edges of the roller do not catch the stencil.
Make surer your stencil is level, this may seem like a DUH point but it happens. I purchased the clip on level, but did not realize I didn't have it attached straight to my stencil. My first few stencils ended up being crooked.

Remember that it is a stencil. That means that there will be a few imperfections. Its ok the only person that will see them are you.
Less paint is better. You don't want it to bleed through the cracks.
Finished Results! What do you think??
