DIY Wall and Floor Stenciling










Yesterday I got this book by Ed Roth. You can also buy individual stencils from his site or get great video instructions on stenciling patterns on wall and floors on his blog here.




It includes 10 plastic, reusable stencil for floors, walls or even fabric. I loved the trellis designs for our bedroom or hallway and the circle designs for the nursery.

For now here is an inspiration of stenciled floors. Stenciling floors is a great way to freshen up cement floors or old hardwood. If only I had such a floor at home.

Stenciling floors is simple and easy. Clean the floor well to get rid of dirt and oils. Apply the stencil with a dry brush using fabric paint ( it adheres better to wood and cement ). If you desire a high gloss finish you can apply a gloss sealer or leave it as is.

Αυτή τη μέθοδο για τα δάπεδα την είχα δει σε ξένα περιοδικά και δεν είχα βρει πηγή. Αυτή που μας δίνεις δείχνει πολύ καλή, ευχαριστούμε. Το αποτέλεσμα είναι τόσο κομψό, θυμίζει γαλλική επαρχία.
