Stencil-On Border

If you're not looking to spend a lot of time or cash, a stencil border is a great way to liven up a room with some period charm. Stenciling is a centuries-old European tradition meant to mimic expensive wallpapers, and it has lived on in various forms such as artistic borders. Depending on your taste, you can use a precut version or you can design your own stencil for a custom look. For full step-by-step instructions, see How to Stencil a Border
