I have a small counter area in my kitchen that I use as my coffee bar. I don’t have a backsplash on this wall and it looked a bit boring. I decided to give it a little makeover. This faux tile backsplash was an inexpensive project, just a little bit of paint that I already had and the cost of the stencil from Amazon.

I picked a 6 inch by 6 inch stencil for the wall. It’s 12 inches in height so I can do 2 rows of the stencil.
How To Stencil A Backsplash
The first step was to paint my wall with a coat of white paint and let it dry completely before proceeding with the stenciling.
My backsplash area is 12″ in height and I used a 6″ stencil so I could stack two. I used this stencil from Amazon.
First, I lined up my stencil with my starting point and used a couple of pieces of painter’s tape to hold the stencil in place.
I used a little bottle of black acrylic craft paint for the stencil and stippled it on with a stencil brush.
This stencil is easy to work with because it makes the petals for the next area on the wall so you can use that as your guide as you move to the next section.
Around the electrical outlet was a little tricky but I just did the best that I could.
It took me about 2 hours to finish this wall and I really love how it came out!
