Stencil Painting in Style

Paint colors have the power to lift moods, express individuality and liven up any space in your home. But what happens when you mix the power of paint with the power of print? Your home becomes a work of art with the help of wall stencils.

Picture Perfect Patio  

Looking for a wallet-friendly alternative to tile? Try stenciling your patio floor. Using a large stencil design gives the illusion of an oversized floor tile. The dramatic contrast between Iron Ore and Extra White transformed this outdoor patio into a glamorous retreat.

Bold Bathroom  

Give your bathroom the bold revamp it deserves, like this stencil painting featuring Salty Dog and Agreeable Gray. Pair a lively wall stencil design with wainscoting to make your art stand out – and to cut back on the amount of space you have to stencil (work smarter, not harder!)

Fireplace Refresh  

Are accent fireplaces the new accent wall? If you’re looking for a fun way to refresh your fireplace, stencil a unique pattern on each tile or brick. Pairing a bold wall color like Caribbean Coral with a neutral like Tamarind makes this stencil design stand out while still looking boho chic.

Creative Coffee Nook  

Kick off your morning with creativity and caffeine. Use a botanical-inspired wall stencil, like this leaf pattern featuring our 2021 Color of the Year, Urbane Bronze and Alabaster, to bring the outdoors inside and make a statement in your favorite rooms. 

Whether you’re stenciling a patio floor or a coffee nook, the most important thing to remember is to embrace the imperfections and have fun with it. Share your stencil painting projects using #SWColorLove on social media or upload them to our photo gallery.


  1. Where did you purchase the round mirror?

  2. Love this idea. How long does the paint last on concrete under a covered porch?

  3. Don’t leave me hangin’ bro! How do I do this? How do I get or make these stencils? Do I use one stencil over and over or do I need to lay them down all over first? Love the look!

  4. It would be nice to know what stencil was used on the patio floor please?

  5. This is exactly what I needed to inspire me to do a new painting project!

  7. Does Sherwin Williams have a paint that I can use on my ceramic tile floor in my powder room? Because it is a powder room, moisture is not a concern. Thanks!

      Hi Lori, we do not offer a product that can be used on ceramic floors at this time.

    • Lori,
      You might try extreme Bond primer from Sherwin Williams and then their All Surface Enamel in a low sheen to prevent slip/fall or rough up the top a bit as part of your design. Use the water based formula as the oil based has a horrible smell when applying.

  8. What is the name of stencil pattern used for the patio from StencilsLAB? Thanks.

  9. I want to paint a concrete floor. Dont know where to start. Help

  14. Would like to paint a mural on a cement wall surrounding my courtyard.

  15. Do you have any paint to use on linoleum or vinyl?? I. Not sure which I have.

  16. I think that some of these stencil ideas are a good alternative to wallpaper. But I am too much of a perfectionist to attempt this myself. I would have to hire someone else to do it for me.

  17. I like the stenciled patio. (I do wonder how well it would hold up to the elements in an environment that has harsh winters.) I might would try stencils in a bathroom; I’m not sure that I am ambitious enough to put it on a wall in a larger room.

      Good idea, see how you like them in the bathroom! As long as you use a good exterior product, they should hold up just fine.
