Female: You know a lot of people in America have these like higher ceilings and they don’t know what to do because most new construction involves high ceilings now and open plans.
Male: It was a great idea when we bought it, I’m just not sure what to do now.
Female: How long ago was it when you bought it?
Male: Almost two years now.
Female: I’m going to show you how you can use color to help make it seem not so cavernous. You can get away with a heavier color in here because all of your wall spaces up high. So luckily, the cool part is I have a friend who paints and he’s going to come and get the base coat started. I chose for this room a warm neutral color that’s going to help balance the walls and also balance that terracotta couch. Tomorrow, I’ll come back with some paint tricks so we’re making a stencil, super easy project and we’re going to do it using cost efficient poster board.
Poster board could soak up the paint depending on how much you’re putting on. but you can make multiple of this. So $10 investment, well worth it. I loved these that I found in the other room so I’m going to get inspired by these and so we’re adding little patterns.
Male: We wanted to use this but they just turned out to be too small.
Female: They are tinitiny aren’t they? I’m going to show you how you can take things that you already had or inspired you and adapt them on a better scale for that space. Anyone can do this no matter what style of home you have can adapt it to be contemporary or traditional. I am going to give you this and I’m going to have you start cutting it out with the box cutter and I’m going to check on Sherry. I’ve already taped this off, it’s level and it’s 36 inches.
Male: So I’m guessing that’s why we did the stencil 36 inches.
Female: On the nose, you’re right, that’s perfect. And what we’re going to do is we’re going to paint a different color than our wall color and then we’ll put the stencil on top of it.
Male: Why are you going to put another color on top?
Female: It’s because it’s going to give it more layers to our stencil and that way we don’t have just two tones, we’ve got the wall color, the base color and then we have our stencil color on top of it. Let’s go ahead and load our rollers. Make sure it’s not too saturated because we don’t want it to drip underneath the stencil. I love it. We envision it all the way around.
Male: I’m getting closer being sold but I’m not there yet. If I was a pushover-
Female: I’m trying to win you over and the cool thing about paint is if you hate it, you can always paint over it.
Female: This is fabulous.
Female: You really mean it?
Female: Yes, I love it.
Female: Now that your wife likes it, do you like it?
Female: I know you weren’t sold on the stencils.
Male: I didn’t see the whole picture and I never could see it before and now that it’s all together I can really see it.
Female: With the lighting and everything, the lights, lamps.
Female: You see how easy that was to make over a space with paint?
