Hand Stencilled Kitchen Walls and Kitchen Sneak Peak

Hand Stencilled Kitchen WallsHand stencilling walls is a great alternative to wall paper or a flat color.

When we bought our house a few months ago, I knew one of my first major projects would be our kitchen. It’s not that it was awful when we moved in, just generic, unfinished and all-in-all kinda blah.

I was also THRILLED to finally get to design my own kitchen. I kept going back and for on what style “fit” us, and the house. The only things that had to stay were the marble countertop, ebony cabinets and tile floor. The rest I could do myself :-)

The theme I finally landed on was “Warhol’s Warehouse Kitchen”. Ya, definitely not copying anyone there, Hah!I started by painting the base color walls 2 shades of grey and replaced the backsplash with white subway tile, I had to tie this crazy theme back into our house. That’s where the hand stencilled walls came it. Using a tan over the darker grey I stencilled the zig-zag pattern to look like thatching, bringing an organic texture back to the harsh lines and bright colors of the pop art kitchen.

If anyone else would like to use the stencil, here it is for the silhouette. My settings for cutting were blade 3; speed 1; thickness 33 and I used Plaid 28939 Simply Stencil, Cut Your Own. I cut 6 of these stencilled and rotated them through use. Once you paint over it enough times, the paint accumulates on the stencil and smudges the pattern on the wall. I found that wiping it off then letting the excess dry a bit, let me keep using the stencils.

I LOVE painting my walls in creative ways. (Check out my Burst of Grey Office Wall) Not only do I love the end result, but I find it therapeutic. The kitchen walls took me about 6 hours to complete, but time well spent. Here’s some pictures of the final result, and a Sneak Peak at the rest of my kitchen. I’ll have a post about the entire re-do up as soon as I think it’s really finished :-) Let me know what you think! <3

p.s. Spelling of “stencilled” and stenciled  – looked it up in the online dictionary and it said both on multiple sites, so I just went with what I started with…  but does anyone know what’s right?

    • Thank you Kristi! Thatmeans the world to me. This Kitchen has been such a personal project, I love hearing that I wasn’t just completely out in left field with this concept. Thanks for making my day!

  2. This looks awesome! I love adding details like this with paint and you did a great job. Not sure which is correct for stenciled…I always ask google too and do not like when he doesn’t know either! Isn’t he supposed to know everything? Ha! Thanks for partying with us at The Makers!
