Adding a chair rail or opting for a wainscoting or paneling project, which will require a helper with a few carpentry skills, is still another way to dress up those tired old walls. Doing something simpler like covering a less than perfect wall with fabric or just making a decorative curtain wall to cover the entire space is another alternative. Walls decorated with an interesting fabric are practical, good-looking, and flexible and can also be used to complement other fabric items in your room.
Stencils are a bit artsier than murals and can give your room a handmade look. I`ve seen some great stencils that look like rock walls with vines and ivy. If you are the least bit creative, then stencils will allow you to exercise that creativity to make a piece of wall art that you can enjoy every day as well as show off to your guests. Wall murals and stencils go with a variety of decorating themes including the old world, shabby chic, french country, and even some contemporary styles.
You can stencil your own border across the top of the wall or as a border halfway up the wall or stenciling can include allover prints. You can choose from the embossed look to beautiful mosaic stencils, contemporary styles, art nouveau, and architectural styles just to name a few. When it comes to imaginative wall decorating ideas, stenciling has to be high on the list.
