What You'll Learn

  1. Introduction
  2. Get This Look
To get the look shown here, choose a patterned stencil (Large Mediterranean, about $100; hennydonovanmotif.co.uk) and two crisply contrasting colors, such as this clean white and ocean blue. Finish with two protective coats of water-based satin polyurethane, and there you have it: one day later and a few simple steps closer to a richly finished space.
