DIY Stencil Project and Giveaway

By August 3, 2012August 11th, 2012Decorating

Creating your own space and making it uniquely yours is a great way to show your imagination and creativity. Today I’m teaming up with the designers of Your Picks. Your Place. Sweepstakes to share with you a DIY Stencil Project using the African Kuba Stencil from the Global Glam Collection designed by Kim Myles from HGTV.

Most of the time when I think of stenciling, I think of creating a large wall or area, but creating a simple wall hanging is a great option. Maybe you have limited space, or live in an apartment where you aren’t allowed to paint the walls or you are like me and love to change things around in your home and love a different look once in awhile.

For this stenciling project, we used a piece of plywood, painted it brown and following the directions that came with the African Kuba Stencil, rolled on the light green paint over the stencil with a foam roller.

The artistry of geometric Kuba designs have been popping up in the most unexpected places lately. One of the beauties in using stencils is that you get the look of wallpaper without the hassle, and the ideas are endless…rugs, floors, ceilings, the list goes on.

If you are looking for more decorating ideas, you must head on over to the Your Picks. Your Place. Sweepstakes! From now until August 14th, you can see what the designers have dreamed up! Oh, and let’s not forgot…vote and you could win $10,000!!

And guess what? I have an African Kuba Stencil for you!! One lucky reader will win a stencil AND it’s autographed by Kim Myles…cool, right?
