steps

  1. Start with your base colors. You can use any combination of vintage decor paints -- we painted the bookcase backsplash with Admiral Blue.

  2. Once the base colors are dry, use the stencil tape to adhere your desired patterns to each surface.

  3. Load paint sparingly onto the brush and apply a thin layer paint. Add a second coat if desired.

  4. While paint is still wet, carefully peel off the stencil.

  5. Continue painting areas of the stencil according to your design. Let the paint dry completely before placing another stencil or color over it.
