Last night I revealed Phase 1 of our master bedroom makeover… our new master bedroom paint color. You can read all about it in the Power of Paint Party. Today I’m sharing the beautiful feature wall I created with a stencil. I love how it’s simple, yet has a bit of shine (I mixed some shimmery paint in it).
Stencil Focal Wall Supply List

- Hourglass Stencil
- painter’s tape
- paint paint (blue paint on used on my walls)
- Shimmering Silver acrylic paint
- White Pearl acrylic paint
- foam roller
- paint tray
- paper towels
So here’s the step-by-step:
To create my custom paint color for my stenciled area I took some of the blue paint that I had recently painted on our master bedroom wall and add 2 bottles of White Pearl and about 1/2 bottle of Shimmering Silver.
I started in the upper left corner of my focal wall.
I started about an inch down from the ceiling (mainly to make it easier with taping). Make sure to use your level to make sure your starting point is straight.
I coated the roller and then gently rolled it on a paper towel to remove any excess paint.
Then came the nervous fun of painting! I gently rolled over the stencil, reloading the roller after finishing about 1/2 the stencil.
See that extra section of hourglass on the upper right side? There is one on the lower, left too.
You use those to help line up the next row. Once you get the first couple rows lined up and rolled it moves pretty quickly.
Look what you can create in just a few hours…
I love the shimmer that the acrylic paint added making it just enough to where you can just see the design but it’s not GLARING in your face.
