Good morning my stencilin’ diy homeowners! If you were to take a good look around your house, what’s the one space that is often overlooked and forgotten about? Are you thinkin’ what we’re thinkin’? We’d say the hallway. Since a hallway is not really a room but rather a space that connects other spaces; they’re often neglected in the makeover process. It’s understandable, we walk through them but we don’t typically spend time a great deal of time in them. So that got Cutting Edge Stencils thinkin’! What if we used this as an opportunity to turn a drab space into something fab using stencils! After all a pretty stencil pattern and a fresh coat of paint can brighten any dull, neglected hallway!
I want you meet Emily , the DIY creative mastermind behind the blog 52 Mantels. Not too long ago, Emily decided her hallway needed a change. It was dark and after three years, she just couldn’t take it anymore. She started the hallway makeover by adding some diy board and batton to the bottom part of the wall in a bright white. On the top half of the wall she selected the Mermaid Allover Stencil. She painted the stencil in colors similar to Benjamin Moore’s revere pewter HC-172 and snowfall white OC-118. Emily gives some fab stenciling tips on her blog. She says, “I think the stencil was really easy to use and gives a lot of impact for relatively low effort! ” See what a fresh coat of paint and pretty pattern can do for a gloomy hall? We love how Emily took her hallway from drab to fab! Oh yeah, go read her post and make sure you enter her $50 Cutting Edge Stencils Giveaway!
Next I want to introduce Stacy, the queen of DIY and blogger behind Beefore and After. She had pretty much painted every nook and cranny in their house with the exception of their hallway. Stacy knew she wanted her hallway to have a little pizzaz so decided to stencil it with the Zamira Allover Stencil. She had selected this stencil because she felt it was both “modern and classic”. Next Stacy selected a complimentary paint color based on the rooms that the hallway linked. She landed on Benjamin Moore’s cream fleece 233 as the base wall color and winter wheat 232 as the stencil color. After completing her stencil project Stacy says, “I could stare at it for hours. Somehow the hallway seems wider and longer now. And much, much better looking.” And we can’t argue with that! We love how she transformed her hallway with a stencil, don’t you?!
