DIY Painted Houndstooth Wall

You may remember the DIY beds for this room when I first shared some pictures of  my boys’ unfinished shared room. I managed to get pretty far into the process while pregnant with #3, and then all the design came to a halt. Now I finally decided things needed to happen, and with the help from my friends at Cutting Edge Stencils, I found the exact wall detail I needed—the Houndstooth Allover Wall Stencil.

Here is what the wall looked like before I got started. I painted it white before starting the stencil.

The instructions that came with the stencil were super easy to follow. I picked an area of the wall to start and used Frog Tape to hold the stencil in place. I highly recommend getting the clip-on stencil level—this makes the process so much easier!

Here is what the progress looks like. Fun right?

When you are doing the stencil, you may notice some areas that have slight imperfections due to the paint bleeding under the stencil, but I promise, once the wall is complete, you won’t even notice those areas. I waited until the wall was finished before I did any touch-ups.

And here is the finished wall.

This was just the fabulousness I needed to complete the space. Oh, I’m sure I will make a few tweaks with pillows and accessories, but the painted houndstooth wall detail is an amazing addition, and the boys love it!
