Using JRV Stencils On Fireplace Hearth

I only had to start over and repaint it once, and it did take me all day, but I am pretty pleased with how it came out. Our fireplace had no hearth and they put two random fat boards in front of it that didn’t match the wood floors. So with a lot of bondo, DIY Primer, Milk Paint, and some stencils we stenciled a faux tile hearth. Not only was it inexpensive, it also solves the problem of having a weird lip if we had used actual tile. I still need to seal the paint. But that’s just gonna have to wait because I am starting to prime the floors tonight . And even though we had some people say I shouldn’t, I lightly distressed the stencil. I’m so glad I did because it helped she it just enough that it fits in with old world fireplace. I love what a little paint and stenciling can do . I used our new Morrocan Mini stencils from our new stencil release that went up on the website last Friday.

*This was done on a non-functioning fireplace.

We used the Moroccan Mini Stencil Set to create this look. We used the one in the second row middle in the photo above. You can buy the Moroccan Mini Stencil here:
