Cutting Edge Stencil Giveaway!

Hello, Hello, Hello!!!

I am SO excited to finally share some sneak peaks of some major progress I've made on my Monochromatic Master Makeover (say that 5 times fast!)

I'm even more excited to be giving away a $50 gift certificate to Cutting Edge Stencils!! 

If you've been hanging out in blogland long enough I'm sure you've seen many of their lovely stencils working magic on walls everywhere.

Love this one...

via Cutting Edge Stencils

I was giddy when they sent me the stencil of my choice, a paint roller, a sweet little attachable stencil level plus another little stencil to use and review!

I was really torn as to which stencil I wanted... it was a close pick between the ever popular moroccan inspired trellis/quatrefoil  "Rabat Allover" stencil seen above and below.

Or the classic and elegant Anna Damask Stencil...

Anna Damask Stencil
via Cutting Edge Stencils

Going into it I thought for sure that I would go for the trellis "Rabat Allover" pattern as it is hot, hot, hot right now.  I then realized that it may be out, out, out in 6 months.  :(  But I didn't care, it just may be too small of a pattern for the large wall I'd be stenciling.  I also have a long time love affair with damask and it is more of a timeless pattern ( I hope!)  

So, even though I drool over the trellis pattern I went with the Anna Damask instead.  I chose it for the an accent wall behind our bed in our master bedroom.  Although I love it, I thought the trellis pattern would be a little busier than I wanted for this large wall.

I did a shimmery paint color that is a little lighter than my wall color.  I am loving how it turned out!





Depending on how how the light hits it greatly varies the look...


Looking shimmery in this one.


Not so shimmery in this one.


What do you think?? 
I   L. O.  V.  E.  LOVE IT!! :)

I have 2 more strips of stenciling to go and then have to do the ceiling edge (I'll explain more on that in my tutorial) but I'm really close to being done!

When I'm finished I'll post a detailed tutorial with my paint colors and give you some tips that I've figured out along the way.  The huge stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils along with the stencil level they provided have really made it a pretty easy job.  They also have a video on You Tube HERE demonstrating the proper technique.  I was worried I'd mess up somewhere and start going crooked but not at all, the stencil level makes it fool proof for the most part. :) 

Now, the giveaway!

I'm so excited that Cutting Edge Stencils has so generously given me $50 store credit to give away to one lucky reader.

  16. I did all 5 steps, and I am in love with the Damask Verde stencil! Your wall looks fantastic. I like how the color difference is small but it is shiny in the light. I would definitely like to go for that look when I take my first shot at stenciling. I will look forward to your tutorial.
