Stenciled Wall Art with Vinyl Letter

With little Baby Boy on the way I have been thinking a lot about what his nursery is going to look like.  I don't know why deciding on colors that aren't girly, but still appeal to me have been so hard!  Seriously!  I don't think I was cut out to be a mom to a boy!

Finally, I decided on doing mustard yellow, gray, and black.  Luckily for me, the nursery is already painted gray, so I am one step closer than I was before to getting his room done.  Thankfully, I still have 3 more months to get prepared for this little bundle of joy.

The first piece of decoration that I have made for his little room is a stenciled board with a Vinyl Letter on it. (Now hopefully we don't decide on a different name...eek!)

Here's how its done:

1. Cut a board down to the desired size.  My vinyl piece measured 12 inches long so I cut my board 14 inches long.

2.  Spray paint it (or roll it) your desired color

3.  After that has dried take the stencil that you would like the pattern of and lay it on top of your board.  My stencil was a little smaller than my board so I had to move the stencil around and paint it several times.

I would suggest NOT spray painting it like I did.  I centered the stencil on my board and sprayed it first and then I had to lay the stencil down 4 different times in each corner to finish the entire board off.

Next time, I would start in 1 corner and spray the stencil and then move it to the other corners, making sure to line up the stencil each time.  It would lessen the amount of times you would have to move the stencil and spray.

Also, you will either need to be REALLY quick when you are repositioning and spraying each time, OR wait after each spray for the paint to no longer be tacky.  Otherwise, the paint will stick to your stencil when you move it.  I am not very patient so I tried to be as quick as I could which worked for the most part, but not completely.

I used the Small Casbah Trellis stencil from Royal Design Studio Stencils

One other note.  I didn't want my stenciling to be perfect and clean.  I wanted a little rustic, not perfect look to it.  IF I wanted the stenciling to be perfect, I would have been A LOT more careful in the stenciling. 


4. Now take your vinyl letter and put it onto your board.

I used the the Classic Letters Monogram Vinyl Wall Decal from Wallternatives.  They not only have the letters, but they have a ton of amazing different vinyl and fabric decals for your home.  Seriously, head on over and check their website out.  It is amazing!  I especially love all of their designs in Chalkboard Vinyl. 



5.  You are finished!  Isn't it cute!

Cute! I like the color combo. I had the opposite difficulty, picking colors for a girls room, not so much for our boy! Lol

Turned out cute too! :)

That is too funny! My husband has no confidence in my ability to not glammerize/glitterize/girlize a little boys room. Can't say that I blame him too much :) Even that sign doesnt scream masculine to me, but I still Love it lol

Very cute. I would make this for a baby present so the mom could hang it on the baby's door
