Update, June 2016: This tiny post has been so popular that I’ve expanded on the subject in a new follow-up post, Stenciled Patios II.
Paint and stencils can help you convert a dull concrete patio into an attractive outdoor living space. There are a variety of patio stencils available commercially. Traditional patio designs include stone and brick motif’s, but if you’d like something a little more trendy, try a large allover stencil or wallpaper stencil design.
The stenciled patio shown left was created using Stencil Ease’s Brick Patio stencil kit.
Blogger Haley Harmon, below, of WeMadeItHome.com, stenciled her patio with a stencil she cut herself from stencil paper, using a large sponge brush and cement paint.
