We're always on the look out for design ideas that give our spaces a little extra "oomph." So when we stumbled upon the idea of using joint compound in combination with stencils, we were all ears! It's an easy, fool proof project that will bring simple shapes to life! Details are after the jump!

Sara Rivka, the Creative Jewish Mom, is the mastermind behind this textural experiment. She used it in other places in her home, but we're thinking it would be perfect for our kids spaces. It would allow them to run their little hands over the letters, numbers, shapes and objects stenciled onto their wall.

Sara states the project, although it sounds daunting, is made easy by the joint compound's ability to wash off tools and more importantly walls if you make a mistake (which is more than we can say for some oops paint applications). All you need is a thick plastic stencil and you're all set.
