Marrakesh Wall Painting Stencil
Repositionable Spray Adhesive
Flat Tipped Stencil Brush

Welcome to the debut project tutorial from Oak Lane Studio! Follow along as we transform this side of the road dresser into a fresh new piece for your home with chalk paint. Quickly and easily create a Moroccan inspired ambiance in your home with this Marrakesh Wall & Floor Stencil. Our designer stencils can be used to embellish walls in bathrooms, hallways, bedrooms, furniture, floors and more. For this project, lightly sand the original finish to give your paint legs to cling to the surface. After 2-3 coats of Serendipity Blue Annie Sloan chalk paint we let the project dry completely before stenciling. Apply Repositionable Spray Adhesive to the back of your stencil and allow it 30-60 seconds to become tacky. Then press it to the center of your project being sure the pattern is flush with the edges. Next, swirl your stencil brush into your white chalk paint and unload the excess onto a paper towel. Your brush should feel just about dry to the touch. Swirl your dry brush through the stencil pattern & build up your color slowly in 3-4 coats. Always remember to use the dry brush technique when stenciling. If you use too much paint it will bleed beneath the stencil details causing the image to come out blurry. Once you get full coverage line your stencil design up next to the now stenciled portion and continue stenciling. Repeat this process until you have covered your entire project. Keep in mind that for some projects you may need to remove drawers or knobs while you're stenciling then replace them when you're finished. This way you won't have to stencil into tight areas.
