My Favorite Stencil Projects

high impact design ideas for your home

Hello friends and happy weekend! Today I'm sharing some of my favorite interior design looks created with stencils. We are talking high impact, low cost ideas for totally reinventing your space and making it look incredible! I'll also share with you a great place to shop when looking for stencils and some of my top picks from them. Every image is linked for you so you can read more about the talented people that created these looks!

First Floor Facelift

using paint to reinvent your space

It's been four years since we built and moved into our home. Our floor plan is open concept and all the first floor rooms bleed together. So when we make a decision on wall paint color, we better be ready to live with it. This can make painting expensive if planning to hire a painter. I estimated that my first floor (based on what I paid several years ago) would have been somewhere around $2,000+. Not wanting to spend the money, I committed to doing it myself and setting aside a few hours each night for about a week or so to get the job done. NOTE: The hubs does not paint - so I was flying solo on this project :)

$100 DIY Faux Brick Backsplash

adding charm on the cheap

Picking out a tile for backsplash was pretty painful. I love so many different looks and styles and colors. From traditional subway to high glossed clay and everything in between, this was one of the more difficult design decisions I've made for my home.

Family Room Makeover

Fresh Paint & DIY Wainscoting

Hey friends! I am super excited about all the little projects going on this fall in our home and I can't wait to share them with you. The best part is that I made so many impactful changes and only spent about $300. Woo hoo! 

Bedding and RV'ing

 A perfect fit for your RV (every time)

Camping and RV'ing with my family is one of my absolute favorite things to do. It is a true adventure and blessing. There is not one regret that comes to mind when I think about making the leap into becoming an RV owner. The memories, the kiddos, the feeling of having my 'home on wheels' --- I love it all! 

Country Living in an RV

Fields of Dreams in Cooperstown, NY

Memorial Day Weekend 2017

Our first RV trip of the year is in the books! It was a little bit of a wet one with cooler temps than the kiddos would've liked, but either way, it was a vacation! Our destination to kick off this camping season was Cooperstown, NY. Only about 90 minutes from my hometown of Cohoes it was a close getaway, perfect for a couple nights in our RV.

Target 'Dollar Bin' Herb Garden

a cute & easy garden project

The concept of 'time' seems to be luxury idea for me these days. I don't recall another point in my life where I've been busier but I don't want to give up on the simple pleasures of life. For me, a full-blown garden this summer seems like it may be out of the question (stay tuned) but a simple little herb garden seemed feasible thanks to the help of Target's dollar-bin.
