Stencils Are an Easy and Affordable Way to Brighten A Living Room
Good morning, my stenciling pals. Spring is in the air and just as this warm weather is sure to revive our gardens, Cutting Edge Stencils is here to help revive your living space. Stencils are an affordable way to freshen up a dull space. Today we have a mini makeover story that is so fabulous, it is sure to knock your stenciled socks off. Come check it out.
We’d like you to meet Heather, a decorating enthusiast and avid DIYer behind the blog Put That On Your Blog. Heather has been in the process of making over her living room and we have to say this is one of our favorite makeover stories. Here is the plain beige living room before its makeover.
Heather kicked off the project by painting the walls above the chair rail in a pretty blue-gray hue similar to Benjamin Moore’s iced slate 2130-60.
The fresh color palette does wonders for this space but Heather wasn’t stopping there. Since she had kept her color palette relatively monochromatic, she decided to paint an intricate stencil pattern on the blue portion of the walls. She searched through our website and fell head over heels for the Coco Trellis Allover stencil pattern. She said, ” I think the room will handle more interest especially in the top half to balance everything that’s going on with those wild Balinese pieces, acacia floors and patterned rug below.” Heather used blue painters tape to hold her stencil in place while she painted the trellis pattern using a dense foam roller. We won’t bore you with the details because she spills the beans about her stenciling process on her blog. Here is a progress shot:
Once the stencil was complete, Heather put her furniture back into place. Are you ready to see how it all turned out?
Heather had this to say about her newly stenciled space, “The living room was nice before the stenciling, but now it is stunning. The trellis adds detail and whimsy to a formal space. ”
We think this space is totally drool-worthy.
