Today I'm sharing with you how to get crisp lines for designs/stencils on textured walls. All of the walls in my house are textured. The ones in these images are like a popcorn ceiling…except it’s my wall. None of my walls are just a little textured. They're all obnoxiously textured, of course, which is a real pain to paint.

So for everyone out there with a home that had previous owners who embraced the textured phase… Well, this one is for you. Painting these walls can be a real pain in the butt. Glad to be here to help!
Step 1. TapeI advise getting good quality tape, first. Then tape off your design, your lines, or whatever it is you're taping.
Step 2. CaulkTo prevent running paint and leaks, etc., purchase a paintable silicone caulk and smooth a small amount over all paint edges.
Step 3. Paint RollerUse a paint roller, not a paintbrush, to paint over your tape.
