HOW TO - Stencil A Kitchen Splashback

HOW TO - Stencil A Kitchen Splashback

We went from this…. To this….👏 In this blog I’m going to share in detail how I created the stencilled splashback.  If you want to know more about the actual renovation of the space, head over to my other blog: Marie’s Kitchen Makeover. So, this is where the inspo came from.  I found this pic on Pinterest and so wanted this look.   We actually sell a stencil with that exact wall tile design, the Florence Faux Tile Stencil.  As I had a large space to cover, and to speed up the project, I opted for a 6-tile repeat stencil. ...

Marie's DIY Stencilled Faux-Tile Fireplace

Marie's DIY Stencilled Faux-Tile Fireplace

This was our dining room when we first moved in.  It hadn’t been touched since the 90’s.  That fireplace just had to go and the woodchip too, it was everywhere! 😬 We knocked out the fireplace to reveal the original opening that housed the range cooker back in the day!  I wrote this blog to cover the stencilling part of my fireplace makeover.  If you want to know more on how the fireplace itself was built up then head over to Marie’s Fireplace Makeover.  But for now, let’s skip to the prep work before I started stencilling. We smoothed out...

I'm going to give you a step by step run down on how I went from this to this!

Here is a round up of all the wonderful things I have found and bought through July. In true Dizzy Duck style there are a good few bargains in there! Water Hyacinth Cactus Ornament Dunelm £12 It was Marie who spotted this beauty one shopping trip. We both had to have it! I really love how versatile this piece is. It suits most décor schemes and makes a statement without being too overpowering. It’s lived on my stenciled windowsill for few months, but now takes pride of place on my staircase windowsill. Marie currently has it on her fireplace mantle....

Dizzy Ducks On The Road!

Dizzy Ducks On The Road!

Myself and Jasmin love a good stencilling project so when Pete said he wanted to stencil his bathroom floor we were more than happy to help out!  😃 Pete had already prepped the floor and applied a couple of coats of primer as a basecoat. All we had to do was the stencilling.  Pete loved the geometric Oriental look of the Belmont Hexagon Wall and Floor Tiles. We already had our eyes 👀 on this design some time ago as a stencil idea.  The tiles can be laid in numerous pattern ways but we chose the one we preferred and our...
