Hi, we used a stencil made of plastic over a plain wall, and Benjamin Moore "Ben" paint. Hope this helps!

Hi, the prices vary from stencil to stencil, this particular one called "Aspen" by Diane Paparo, it costs $49.95 and the roller is $5.95. You can place an order on and we ship internationally too! ~Janna

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Sheila Schmitz added this to How to Use an All-Over Wall Stencil
Repeat the steps for as many stencil prints as you want. No need to clean a stencil in between repeats, unless you’re switching colors from dark to light. This basic stencil rolling technique works well for large wall art stencils and all-over patterns, such as damasks and trellis patterns. Have you been thinking about stenciling a wall lately?

Vanessa Brunner added this to Which Wallcovering Is Right for You?
Want to stick to a quick and easy project you can do on your own? Use stencils on a blank wall. There are multiple sites online that sell various types of stencils, much like the photo above. But it's also incredibly easy to make your own custom stencil — all you need is a piece of posterboard or cardboard and a utility knife.

Gone are the days when you had to depend on an expert who charged a bomb to paint your house, let alone if you wanted it to be done differently. Let me walk you through a few ways to use paint smartly in your house. Is there a wall paper you loved but are reluctant to go for it? You will need a piece of cardboard, pencil, scissors, paint and small brushes. Trace the pattern on cardboard and cut out a basic stencil. Start from one corner of the wall (choose a small area for your first project) and trace out the pattern using a soft charcoal pencil. Do not trace too dark. All you need to do now is paint the pencil outline in your favourite paint colour. Use paint brushes with short bristles as it will help you achieve neater outlines. Creating textures on a wall isn’t a very difficult task either. You can buy textured paint, which is available in different consistencies and use tools like a comb, sponge, trowel or even an old rag to create patterns whilst its still wet. Venetian plaster is another material that can be used with ease to create textures and add depth to the decor.

April 27, 2011
Painting your walls doesn't have to mean settling on a single color applied uniformly over the space. There are endless ways to use paint to add depth or warmth to your space. And of course, it's much easier, faster, and generally cheaper to use. The wall in the photo above got its textured look from a technique called Venetian plaster. An expert applies thin layers of plaster to a wall or ceiling, and then burnishes it to smooth the surface, while giving the illusion of texture.
