Cutting Edge Stencils Is Featured in Creative Spaces and Midwest Living Magazine
Good morning, my DIY friends! Today we have a double dose of stencil goodness. Cutting Edge Stencils spotted our gorgeous stencil patterns in Midwest Living Magazine AND Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking’s Creative Spaces Magazine! Can we get a double high five? It’s an amazing feeling when you flip open one of these prestigious titles and spot your stencil patterns staring back at you. So which one of our fabulous designs was it? Well it just so happens that two of our gorgeous geometric stencils, the Herringbone Allover Stencil and the Covington Allover Stencil, were seen gracing their pages. Let’s take a look.
Herringbone Stenciled Built-In Bookcase by Lolly Jane’s Kelli
Now we know you’ve seen this gorgeous Herringbone Allover Stenciled built-in bookcase before. In fact, not only was it featured on our blog, but it was also highlighted in HGTV Magazine last year. Let’s back up for a minute and explain how it all came about. Kelli, the DIY superstar behind the blog Lolly Jane, shared her gorgeous craft room makeover on her blog. She used the herringbone pattern and yellow paint (Jackson Square by Valspar) to give the back of the shelves a little colorful pop. Then she styled them with mason jars, vintage suitcases, and wooden crates filled with craft supplies. We think based on its popularity, it’s safe to say that we weren’t the only ones WOW’d by this bookcase makeover. You can find this awe-inspiring space on pages 20-23 in Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking’s Creative Spaces magazine, Volume 3.
Covington Stenciled DIY Headboard
Our next stencil appearance was in the July/August issue of Midwest Living Magazine. We love this magazine and its creative ideas. In this special editorial section, they show how paint and stencils offer a creative DIY solution for small-scale paint projects. Our Covington Allover Stencil pattern was used to create a headboard design. They used Craft Smart Acrylic Paint in white on a dark gray wall (Sherwin William’s Gauntlet Gray) for a reversed-out effect. Then they chose the headboard size; for this project it was a queen which measured 60″ x 54″. A 2 1/2 inch wide border was then taped off and painted. When it was dry, the geometric stencil was centered and secured using painter’s tape and repositionable spray adhesive. The stencil pattern was painted in multiple thin layers using a stencil brush. We’re in awe of this super easy yet impressive DIY project, aren’t you?
