The October issue of Inside Out magazine shares a wellspring of a resource: Aussie online dealer, Stencil Gallery. With a selection of 3500 designs that includes art deco, art nouveau, decoupage, asian, ottoman and contemporary, these precision cut Mylar stencils are serious DIY business.

Using a base of paving paint, a contrasting acrylic paint (Liquitex; medium viscosity) for the pattern, the JA45 Mokko stencil, and concrete sealer, designer Caroline Quaine of Norman + Quaine dressed up a concrete floor with striking results. Check out Stencil Gallery's large selection of patterns here (or the equally encyclopedic, The Stencil Library), and you can repeat yourself to your heart's content.
