Love a good patterned wall but hate the idea of wallpaper? You’re in luck—you can create a high-drama focal wall in any room through the magic of stenciling. Find (or make) a stencil pattern that you love, tape it to the wall, dab (don’t brush) the paint into the stencil openings, move the stencil over/up/down and repeat. While you’re filling the wall, definitely use pencil marks and a level, if needed, to ensure that your pattern stays nice and even as you paint.
