DIY Stenciled Wall Art – Purdy November

Hey guys!  I am so happy with how today’s project turned out!  I have a blank space on a wall in my living room that has been in need of something fun.  I couldn’t really find what I wanted to put there, so I made it myself!  Look how cute this DIY Stenciled Wall Art turned out!

I teamed up with Purdy to create this super cute project!  It is so simple to do, and most of you will have most of the supplies sitting at home already.  

I started with a scrap piece of ¾” plywood.  I used sanded plywood because the outside is much smoother than traditional plywood.  I cut my piece to 23” x 23”.

I gave the entire piece a good coat of white chalk paint.

Once that was dry, I placed my stencil in one corner of the plywood and attached it to the board using painter’s tape.  I found my stencil super inexpensive HERE on Amazon.  It actually comes with 2 stencils making the project even faster.

Now for the fun part!  I used my Purdy Jumbo Mini 4” roller with my Purdy 4” Jumbo Mini White Dove roller cover to add the black paint over the stencil.  These roller covers leave a smooth, lint-free finish so it’s perfect for this smooth surface.

I just used some inexpensive black acrylic craft paint for this part.  The roller cover made this part so quick!

I let the paint dry, and then used 120 grit sandpaper to distress the entire piece.  I love the rustic look it gives this piece of art!

The final step was adding my frame!  I measured the outside of the plywood and cut some 1×2 boards to size.  I stained them before attaching to make it easier!  Once the stain was dry, I attached the outside frame using wood glue and 1.25” brad nails through the frame and into the side of the plywood.  So easy! 

I LOVE how this turned out.  It filled the empty space perfectly.  It was such a fun and easy project!
