Hi all, we hope you are all well. It has been a busy summer in Dyslin household. Business is picking up, kids are back to school, we are planning on rolling out new products on our Etsy shop for the next few months.
One of the favorite features in our home is the Moroccan wall in our TV room. We have received numerous compliments on this accent wall.
So, how did we accomplish this look without putting up Moroccan pattern wall paper? I love lists and steps, so I will list out the steps.
- We googled Moroccan pattern and print them out on 11″ x 17″ paper
- We taped the pattern on reclaimed plywood. We had 5/8″ thick plywood.
- I had Chris cut the plywood with jigsaw–> we sell this wooden Moroccan stencil on our Etsy Shop
- I sanded the Moroccan stencil to remove any splinters
- I added center lines on my plywood stencil to ensure stencil is level when apply to the wall
- I started the first 2 rows with pencil to ensure I like the look and that they are level. I traced the pattern up and down.
- Once leveled, I retraced those pencil pattern with silver metallic Sharpie and never looked back. Make sure you trace the pattern 2 or 3 times.
- Continue this process until you complete your wall space
Tips for outlets and hard to reach places: Trace the Moroccan plywood stencil to cereal box and use this to trace those difficult places. The paper is more pliable and easier to maneuver and trace.
- 1 ea plywood to create Moroccan stencil pattern
- 2 ea Sharpie metallic pens
- 1 ea Level
- Patience-tons, literally
Why do we think our Moroccan stencil design is more superior than painting wall stencils?
- No down time required, quick drying time using Sharpie pens
- Multiple use; you can use on fabric, wood, wall, door, furniture, kids, really anywhere you want to add this accent
- Easier than putting up a wall paper
If you have the time and patience, this will be an inexpensive makeover for your home.
