Step 1. Choose two colors. Fun colors. Ones that you love! One color will be on three walls and the other on just one. I chose two shades of green. Benjamin Moore Celadon Green and Benjamin Moore Pear Green.
Step 2. Choose the wall that you will accent. Paint the other three walls.
Step 3. On the accent wall (all the following steps apply to the accent wall) measure and paint approximately 5”-6”in along all sides. Don’t worry about painting a straight line…we’ll be taping off and painting over the rough edge.
Hint: We live in a very old house with not-so-flat plaster walls. If this is the case for you also be sure to press the tape down carefully and firmly to ensure no paint gets underneath when painting the second color. Mine came up a bit…especially on the stencil…which worked for me as I chose a more natural style stencil. If you’re going for a crisp graphic look be extra careful!
Step 6. Cut out stencil and trace onto contact paper.
Step 7. Paint accent wall inside tape. To make crisp lines be sure to paint over tape edge and contact paper stencil slightly. (Actually I completely painted over the contact paper as mine had lots of thin lines).
In this picture I was done painting and had already removed the top tape edge.
Step 8. When paint is completely dry remove tape and contact paper carefully!
