Innovative Ways to Use Stencils in Your Home


Wall stencils can transform a bland piece of furniture into something that fits your room's aesthetic. They're perfect for those pieces you find in garage sales or consignment shops that don't really fit your style, but can easily be turned into something you like a lot better. Looking for some ideas?

Lampshade Revamp

If you have a living room in need of something fun and creative, updating your lamp shades can really do the trick. Take any stencil you like, whether it be a wall tree stencils, abstract tree stencils, family tree stencils, or custom wall stencils, and pick out a paint color that will go best with your lamp and your room. For example, if you have a plain white room with a beige-colored lamp, grab some blue or purple paint and a chevron stencil to really spice things up. Plus, it won’t take a long time to dry, so you’ll be able to use it in no time.

Floor Revamp

You can also use stencils to update a floor. Head to your local hardware store and pick up some flooring stain of your choice. You’ll then use the stain to create the stencil’s design, but there are some things to keep in mind while doing this. Make sure you don’t pick a dark stain color if you have already dark walls. Doing that will make the room look extremely small, which isn’t really good for, say, a bathroom. You also have to pick a stencil that isn’t too busy. Your fixtures should be the stars of your bathroom, after all.

Headboard Revamp

Did you ever think about changing the look of your headboard? With stencils, you can! Depending on what your headboard is made out of, whether it be wood or fabric, make sure you purchase the appropriate paint. Pick out the perfect stencil and get ready to DIY. However, just like you did with the flooring, make sure you don’t pick a pattern that is too busy. The bedroom is all about calm, and your stencil should be too.

Stencils can be used for so much more than just your wall, and if you have the DIY bug, they're perfect for you! So if you're not a part of the one out of five Americans that say they are happy with their home decor (according to a HomeGoods survey), take a look at the suggestions above
