Wall Wow

October 13, 2010

Throughout our 10-year career, PoshTots has had the good fortune to meet, and work with, super talented people.  The artisans with whom we work are truly artists, and those relationships are the lifeblood of our little children’s furnishings website.

One of our favorites (and she’s our neighbor!) is Sunny Goode, of Sunny’s Goodtime Paints.  Even though she’s the queen of faux finishes, she’s the real deal.  Sigh.  She makes it look…so easy.  And so fabulous!  From her glazes to her stencils to her wall monograms, she’s mastered the art of making faux look trendy and fun, not dated and “trying-too-hard.”

Sunny’s Simple “How To Stencil”

  1. Tape the stencil on with blue painter’s tape to keep it in place.
  2. Lightly dip your sponge into the glaze and then tap directly on top of the stencil
  3. For larger stencils, space the stencils about 2″ (5cm) apart. For smaller stencils, a good rule of thumb is to space stencils from fingertip to elbow or about 12″ apart.
  4. Remove the stencil and repeat until you have finished the entire room.

Have you ever used stencils? Share your results! If you’re looking for Sunny’s products, PoshTots has her wall finishes and stencils, both of which we’ve used in photo shoots and highly recommend.
