Rather than add a Bold Color to the walls, the team at A Beautiful Mess decided that a nice print would be a good change. This is what they came up with. A DIY Anchor Stencil Wall Design.
For all the detailed instruction, make sure to head over to their site. It's a low-cost project and you learn how to make a stencil. In a nutshell. You make an anchor with craft foam that you then mount on a piece of cardboard. That's your stencil stamp! Sounds simple enough. The time consuming part is easy to guess. Marking the wall with masking tape, making sure that all the anchor stencils are spaced out right. And be prepared to do touch ups, especially if your wall is textured.
It's such a fun wall. With DIY wall stencils you can have a great design on your wall without having to mount (or pay for) Wallpaper. A great alternative if you ask me. The Stencil wall design took about a day to complete. And of course the design can be anything you'd like it to be, your favorite sea creature for example!
