Check out what my daughter and I did in her room this weekend:

Stenciled gold damask accent wall in a girl's bedroom.

Yep.  We added that damask stencil to the wall behind her bed using a gorgeous antique gold paint and the HomeRight PaintStick Mini.  We both love gold, but didn’t want the commitment of doing an entire wall.  This worked perfectly, and it was a fun project to do together.

You can see what it looked like before–plus the rest of her room–in {this} post.  I love the colors in her room–so soothing for a home near the beach.

We decided to stencil three rows of the damask print behind her headboard and put the decorative plates right back where they were.  Here’s the wall without the plates:

You can see that we staggered the stripes, which seemed to work better with the plates.  Here it is with the plates:


We have textured walls in this house, which makes it virtually impossible to get a crisp edge when doing an accent wall.  Stripes are unbearable–I’ve completely given up!  I started this project with a paint brush, but quickly gave up as the bleed through was horrible.  We then decided to try the PaintStick Mini, and it worked like a charm.  I could control the paint flow (you want to use less paint rather than more when stenciling) and the roller pushed the stencil onto the wall to form a tighter seal as I rolled.

You can read all about how the PaintStick and its petite companion, the PaintStick Mini, work in {this} post.  I give a very thorough review and step by step instructions there!

Also, don’t forget that the PaintStick EZ Twist Challenge is still going on, through May 30th.   My daughter and I made this video to enter (she is ALL OVER winning the iPad Air that is First Prize!):

No, we weren’t actually painting in the video–we would have totally wrecked the wall since we had to shoot about 25 different takes to get through it without laughing, so we had to shoot when the wall was dry.  But I hear that most of what you see in the movies isn’t real! 🙂
