Patterned Walls

A couple of weeks ago, I painted this simple wavy pattern on living room walls. It mimics the pattern in the lamp that they have, and creates a subtle design.

I did the pattern in a high-gloss version of the wall color.

  3. thanks!


    anon- no! I got crazy, and painted over it. haha..it's white again. It just felt too heavy in the space, and I kind of wanted everything to stay neutral for my artwork to look better! :)

  7. I love these walls so much! I would love to do something like that in my house I just don't know that I have the patience to pull it off that and my fear of messing up! That wall is gorgeous!

  8. Forgive me if you have already done this, but perhaps a good post would be how to make a template. What material do you use? What tools do you use to cut it? How do you stop paint from bleeding under it, etc.

  9. rob -

    it probably would be, but I do weird things that are hard to explain! haha...I've gotten into the habits of how i do things, and i've found it is hard to describe to people. a video would probably work, but i dont have anyone to film :)

  10. I always love your stenciled walls, Kristen - they are amazing. I really want to try my hand out at my own house - do you just use a high gloss version of the wall colour? Or is it a different colour all together? Hard to tell in the photos - but whatever it is, it works!
