DIY stenciled frames from Royal Design Studio

I knew I wanted to add personal photos in our master bedroom. There's not a lot of empty wall space due to the opening to the sitting room, but I wanted something cheap, large, easy, and that would add style to the room.
Many of you spied my new photo wall art.

These were ridiculously easy to make. I pinned a million frame ideas on Pinterest, but they all involved complicated cuts to make frame openings. These are simply a painted board with a frame hanging on top! 

To make these, hubbs cut a large piece of PureBond Plywood we had left over from our laundry room cabinets. I knew I wanted the frames to be rectangular so I used general measurements for the plywood. Our pieces ended up being about 8 in. X 14 in. After we cut down the pieces, I painted them with Duck Egg, one of my favorite Annie Sloan Colors.



After the base color dried, it was time for some fun! 

Last year, I had the opportunity to meet some amazing ladies from Royal Design Studio. They are so awesome to work with and they LOVE bloggers! I was able to pick out a stencil to review and there are so many to choose from!  I finally settled on the Large Hollywood Squares Stencil in the Allover Modern Stencils Collection

It reminded me of my inspiration fabric!

I watched a few quick videos on the Royal Designs site and I felt ready to go! I simply sprayed my stencil with spray adhesive, laid it on the wood, and began to paint. 



I used a foam roller and rolled on my paint, CoCo from Annie Sloan. 

I peeled off the stencil before the paint could dry, and repeated this on each of the 4 boards. 

I did have a few spots to touch up (due to my own laziness) but it wasn't anything a craft brush couldn't touch up.



Rather than cut out the inside of the board or cut molding to make a frame, I simply drove a screw into the board and hung the frames on that. 



To hang the boards on the wall, I used picture hanging wire and picture hanging clips screwed into the back. 



We used a level and evenly spaced them on the wall. 



Now instead of 4 small white frames, I have large statement pieces that really make the pictures stand out! 


Stick around, because next week you'll have a chance to win your own stencil from Royal Design Studio
