Ever wanted to try stencils because you have seen all of their awesome transformations on Pinterest and the web?
~ I know the feeling.
If you remember my “closet transformation”, you will know that I used a really cool wall stencil and made my closet a little oasis!
I bought that stencil myself.
Out of my own pocket book people. I dug through my receipts, old crumbly granola bars and found my worn out debit card and purchased it.
And I didn’t even tell you about it then because I have been saving up to tell you now!
Because Cutting Edge Stencils offered a group of my “blogger peeps” and I the opportunity to pick out one for FREE!
AND then they gave each of us a $75.00 credit to give to one of you!
Wait until you see which one I picked!
Can you believe how cool that looks?
Cutting Edge Stencils rocks!
This is their “Indian Inlay” stencil.
Do you remember what this sitting area looked like last summer?
This was one of the EASIEST projects I have ever completed.
Here are the few steps it takes to stencil your very own Persian rug.
If you have been around my blog you know…….
I don’t really do sponsored posts.
Which is why I bought a stencil myself to try out before I told you guys about Cutting Edge…….
And I would buy one again.
It just takes a stencil and a few other items to complete your own transformation.
Here is the sponsored part of my post:
Upon opening up your new Cutting Edge Stencil you will see that they offer awesome video tutorials and step by step instructions!
~I ignored them and just followed the picture.
Bet they never pick me again.
But seriously, it was that easy!
I literally just followed the picture on the package.
I taped it onto the concrete, right next to my work area and used a paint brush with my stencil. I used the adhesive spray and it really helped with no “bleeding” of the paint.
The pattern is in pieces and you can get creative or follow one of their great tutorials.
I even changed up my pattern a tad because I wanted more of my blue to show.
One thing I noticed in my closet wall stencil and on my cabana outdoor rug…..
When you stencil, your little imperfections and mistakes do not really show.
Ok. ‘Nough said.
