Stenciling An Entryway With Cutting Edge Stencils Makes A Grand Statement
Ladies and Gentlemen, can we have your attention please? Cutting Edge Stencils is about to make its grand entrance. As we all know, there’s nothing more impressive than an dramatic entrance. In fact, the foyer or the entryway of a house can really set the tone for a home. Let’s take a look at some examples.
Do you remember Elizabeth, the DIY craftster behind the blog the little black door? We wrote about our green-eyed envy for Elizabeth’s entryway in this post. She used Benjamin Moore’s Lucky Shamrock and our Sari Paisley Stencil to create this stunning green foyer!
And how could we forget about this gorgeous entryway that was featured in Today’s Parent Magazine. It was painted by Sarah Gunn, an interior decorator and DIY expert, using our Charlotte Allover Stencil. We are still gushing from that post. Isn’t it so pretty?
Needless to say these are perfect examples of how an entryway can wow a guest on the way in! Today we’re going to take a look at an entryway transformation that will have you stopping in your tracks and possibly re-entering just to get a glimpse all over again.
Let’s meet Angela, a decorating enthusiast and creative DIYer behind the blog Number Fifty Three, and admire her entryway makeover featuring one of our wall stencils. Here is the boring white on white entryway, that Angela started with…
Angela wanted to feel happy every time she walked through the door and her boring white entryway was just not doing it. She knew the space needed a pick me up and had considered wallpaper. But we all know that wallpaper is super expensive and a huge hassle. So Angela opted for stenciling because she “could really achieve a wallpaper feel by just using a stencil and a little paint.” Angela selected the Harlequin Trellis Allover Stencil for its “classic vintage feel.” Here she is working through the stenciling process. She mentions in her blog post that she found our Clip-On Stencil Level to be very helpful since it’s an older house with crooked walls.
Here is Angela’s show-stopping gorgeous entryway. The Harlequin Trellis Allover Stencil pattern is simply stunning and has that wallpaper like look that she originally wanted. Angela had this to say about her newly stenciled space, “Loving this space now and I sort of think I might just be hooked on stenciling!” We’re so happy that she loves her stenciled space and we’re even happier to hear that she’s been bitten by the stenciling bug. Oh, and if you’re loving her color combo then you can recreate this look using Benjamin Moore’s cloud cover OC-25 for the base wall color and FolkArt gold craft paint for the stencil.
