I’m a fan of the Elle Decoration South Africa blog, are you a reader too? I heard from one of their editors recently, Heather Moore, who told me about this lovely free stencil of a poodle designed by artist Conrad Botes. I love the idea of free stencil downloads, don’t you? Just look at this delicious wall that you’d almost guess was wallpaper if you didn’t know any better… you can do this with stencils and paint!
Sure, it may take some time, but if you’re only doing an accent wall I think it’s a terrific DIY project and a great way to save money as designer wallpaper can be pretty expensive for those on a tight budget. Animal motifs are still all the rage, so this poodle is certainly not going to go out of style anytime soon either…

Would you do something like this in your home instead of using wallpaper? Have you tried stencils before in your home? What were the results? Do you have a link to share showing a photo of a wall you’ve stenciled yourself?
