I have a not-so-secret love for stencils....but please, not the bows, duck and goose country-type. Oh no, that is so 80's! Don't get that idea when you think of a stencil, today the options are beautiful, modern and stunning. I am hopelessly in love with what a much more modern stencil can do for one's home. In fact, I have to restrain myself from over-stencilling my home.
I have had the recent good fortune of being asked by a dear friend to paint the stencils below in her new home. I love this sort of thing so, of course, I jumped at it. But that means I had to practice these stencils in my own home first. It really is a win-win....I get these gorgeous stencils in my space and I did work out the kinks (can be a little tricky around edges and corners) in the stenciling process.
Now, for what you have been waiting for:
the beginning of the stenciling process on the lucky wall in my kitchen.
Oh yeah, baby....
The finished product with frames back in place. Now the wall sings!!!!
And now brace yourself for the guest bedroom makeover......
(I was so excited I forgot to get a before shot. Just imagine the sad, simple wall)
Now it is totally awesome. Dare I say, stunning!
I love the warm gray color (Gibraltar Gray-Pittsburg paint) on top of the light blue (Blue shamrock- pittsburgh paint)
stencil....how I love thee, let me count the ways....
i love how rich you look. i love that you don't overpower a space (when done correctly) but create a point of interest. i love how you are a little dramatic and complicated. i love that you express my personality. i love that you are not wallpaper. i love you dear stencils...and I am not done with you.
***These stencils were ordered from cutting edge stencils ****
check out their awesomeness!
