Ceiling Stenciling Tutorial

Instructions:

  1. Because I was doing my ceiling and I had gravity working against me, I used a spray adhesive on the back of the stencil along with painters tape.
     
  2. I started in the corner above my door so that if I messed up, no one would really notice when they looked in my room. The 2 things you need to remember are a) don't overload your roller with paint! b) don't push too hard. Both of these things will cause the paint to bleed under the stencil. If you are nervous, practice on cardboard or a garage wall. I found that I had to roll in all directions to get paint into the nooks and crannies. The first one I did 2 coats of paint. It was nice and even but I decided I like the look of one coat of paint better. It looked like fabric.

  3. The stencils have these points (shown by arrows). When you go to paint the next row, you line up the stencil to these points and it keeps everything straight. Pretty genius if you ask me.

  4. Because I was doing this on the ceiling I couldn't just peel it off then move it in place and immediately start on the next one. I had to wait for the paint to dry on the stencil (5-10 minutes) before I could place it again.
