Snowflake Accent Wall Treatment

Use color to refresh a little used guest room for winter guests looking for a getaway.

DIFFICULTY: Intermediate


Dress up a guest room for winter fun with a mix of Wagner paint tools and a plethora of decorative treatments including a snowflake accent wall. Big paint projects may require a few gallons to transform an entire room, but Wagner paint sprayers use paint more efficiently than a brush and require a third less paint than a traditional roller.

Why just paint a wall when you can wallscape it? Employ your Wagner paint tools and, in just a few steps, give your room a fresh new shade and a graphic design that will pop. Let these versatile tools use paint wisely and leave you with your own personal design style.

Prepare the space

Tape off any exposed areas that you want to keep paint-free and spread drop cloths to protect the floor. Paint the interior of each wainscot panel on the wall-mounted headboard with the cream paint and the Wagner SMART Edge Roller Let dry completely.

Attach the snowflakes

Place the snowflake cutouts on the wall and within the wainscot panels in a random pattern using pushpins to hold them in place. Once removed, these stencils will leave snowflake shapes on the wall in the cream color. Push pins hold wood cutouts in place during spraying. A sprayer makes efficient use of paint in a larger room project.
