Desk Makeover with Royal Design Studio

I decided I would give my desk area a makeover.  I wasn’t sure how to approach this at first, but then I remembered how I loved  Royal Design Studio Stencils.



Stencils?  I know, I know.  I thought the same thing.  This will not work – I thought my work would look sloppy.  I have never had a great experience working with stencils, my paints usually bleed under the stencil making for lots of touch ups and sloppy work.  I seemed to get frustrated.  But I met this company last year and I liked the product.  The stencils seemed easy enough to use and I loved the larger sizes, the quality and thickness of the stencils.  And the crèmes are so smooth and thick.  So I thought why not give them a try.

Here are the items I used for my project.   
     Honeycomb Allover Wall Stencil
     Pearl Oyster Stencil Crème
     1.5” Stencil Brush
     Blue Painters Tape
     Good Quality Paper Towels
     A Paper Plate


1.  I needed to paint my wall, I just used the white paint we purchased for our house.  I had to say goodbye to the green wall...


2.  The instructions are so easy.  I lined up my stencil using blue painters tape per the instructions included in my shipment.


3.  I poured a small amount of Stencil Crème on my paper plate and added a little to my stencil brush.  I removed the access on the paper towel and applied the paint in a circular motion.  With this large pattern, I found it easier start in the middle and work my way out.  Just in case I added too much paint to my brush.



I’m so happy with the results, I love the Pearl Oyster Stencil Crème and plan to use it again and again.  I used the 8 oz jar and didn't even use half the bottle. I had no paint run under the stencil  which left my project with straight lines and I simply love it. 


Here are the results.  I'm happy!
