Leopard Print Wall
417 Home: What was the inspiration for your dotted wall?
Nikki Deiedrich: I wanted something bold but I didn’t want a ton of color. So I started searching accent walls on Pinterest, of course! After hours of searching photos I came across a stencil company, Royal Stencils. The second I saw the cheetah print stencil I fell in love with it.
417: How long did it take you to paint?
N.D.: It was a two day process. We painted the entire room white then the following day we did the cheetah print. Our stencil day took about 10 hours. Luckily my mom helped me paint and we really had a great time doing it.
417: Are you happy with how it turned out?
N.D.: I’m absolutely obsessed with it!! It’s even better than I imagined it would be.
417: Is there anything you would do differently if you did it again?
N.D.: Not at all.
417: Any tips for people who want to do their own?
N.D.: If you’re going to use a stencil, do the extra step of drying or wiping the back of your stencil after each section. It’s time consuming but it’s totally worth the flawless application.
