Hey all! I have a fantastic giveaway today :) But! You have to wade through my post first :) I got a wonderful opportunity to work with ScotchBlue™ Painter's Tape and The Home Depot with this project and the great event they have going on, "Ready, Set, Paint." They are also hosting a wonderful BlogHop that will feature many other bloggers with other inspiring projects! After all, it is home improvement and painting season :)...and cleaning season, but we won't get started on that.

Framed Stenciled Wall

So, my master bathroom redo is almost done because of this project. I think all I really need to do now is do a deep clean, and I'll call it good :) Which means getting all the random stuff off the edge of the tub and finding a place for them. That should be fun lol

Okay, to start off with this project, here's your supply list:
  • ScotchBlue™ Painter's Tape
  • Paint (for the small project, I just got a sample of the paint from The Home Depot. Cost was only $3 and I barely used half)
  • Stencil of your choosing
  • Molding, miter cut to the size of your choosing
  • Level and ruler
  • Nail gun/hammer and nails
and if you want:



Step 1: Get your measurements. My rectangle is 30x42. I used 1x6 molding which I mitered cut each edge. So the middle rectangle ends up being 23x35. That is the size you will want to use when measuring on your wall.

Step 2: Find the place on your wall that you want to place the 'art'. I found the middle of my wall and measured 11.5" down and up and marked it. I started from the bottom. You can start from the top down, whichever. I used my level and drew a straight line across to mark my bottom portion.

 Step 3: I placed some ScotchBlue™ Painter's Tape on the line. Lining up the top edge of the tape with the line. I found the middle of the wall and marked it. And then measured 17.5" one way and marked that and 17.5" the other way and marked it (that'll give me 35"). Those marks will be where the vertical lines will start.
 Draw the vertical lines using your level, up 23". Then start your top line and make sure to use your level to draw this. Now you have a rectangle :)
 Step 4: Tape all around the rectangle with the ScotchBlue™ Painter's Tape. Making sure the tape is lined up outside the lines, like you did on the bottom line above.
 Now you should have a beautiful leveled rectangle :)
 Step 5: Paint! I used Gentle Rain by Behr for my color. It's a beautiful light grey :) love it!
 Step 6: Start your stencil. I just started mine wherever and continued from there, making sure not stencil outside of the blue tape. Secure the stencil with the ScotchBlue™ Painter's Tape also to make sure it doesn't ruin your paint job :)
 ..almost done!
 Step 7: Pull off the the ScotchBlue™ Painter's Tape. Love that crisp line :)
 Now, we could leave it like this...but, it looks silly :)
 Step 8: Get your molding and start securing it to the wall. I used a nail gun to secure it into the studs. You can use liquid nails also if you would like a more permanent method. Or use nails and hammer if you don't have a nail gun. I started the molding on the bottom; it's just easier.
 Then secure the molding to the sides. And then the top.
 Now, you can stop here.  Or add a little more oomph :).

Step 9: Grab some knobs, and cut down the bolts, unless you don't care if they go through the wall. I cared :) So, I cut them down to the a little bit shorted than the thickness of the molding. I used my Dremel to do this, or you can use some bolt cutters.
 Step 10: Find the center of the molding and mark. And then mark two other equidistant marks on both sides of the middle.
 Use a drill bit that is slightly smaller than the size of the bolt, and drill through each mark, being sure not to go through the wall...unless you didn't cut your bolts, then you can go through the wall.
 Now, screw in your knobs and hang up some pretty mason jars!

 I love how this space turned out. It's so much brighter than it use to be. Plus these candles are going to be delightful when taking a bath :)

 Here's how this area looked before. I had those sconces on the wall since we moved in. Never had any candles on them lol. I don't know why I just left it like that, but I really never used the tub, so it didn't matter to me.
 It's amazing what a little paint can do :) I'm thinking that these vases will eventually house some fresh flowers too. Now maybe I'll use this tub more :)
The total cost for this project was: $8 for the molding, $8 for the stencil, $3 for the paint, and $6 for the knobs. A total of $25. Not bad :)
