Prep the Walls
Prepare the walls for painting; apply the base coat and let dry.
One way to modernize stenciling is to start with a decorative finish. To create the same look we did here, follow the strie instructions to start this project. Or, choose another decorative finish as your starting point.
Protect the work area by spraying the adhesive onto the back of the first layer of the stencil against a drop cloth or poster board. Spray adhesive is like tape; it holds the stencil in place, but allows it to peel off easily when done. Put the stencil in the desired position on the wall.
