Stencil it and save

by Helene Brown

If there’s a room in your home that needs an instant perk-up, try easy stencil decorating to work low-cost magic.

Here and on our cover, designer Richard Neas has used colonial motifs and such modern time-savers as fast drying acrylic paints to bring color and charm to walls, floors and unpainted wood pieces.

Start with the simplest pattern and apply it to just one item. When you’ve mastered the technique, you’re ready to tackle larger projects.
