The Powder Room Reveal !

Cutting Edge Stencils  recently sent me a stencil to use and review and I used it to redo my powder room! 
 Is it possible to love a powder room?  I think so.

(giveaway is closed, thanks for participating!)
Keep reading because there is an awesome giveaway at the end.  
One of my readers will win a Cutting Edge Stencil of their own!  
(valued up to $50, plus free shipping.  US residents only)

It took me a while to decide, but I finally chose the Zagora Allover Stencil and I am so happy with my choice.  It is such an awesome small-scaled pattern, perfect for small rooms.

When we moved in two years ago, we knew the powder room would eventually need a makover and this was the perfect excuse to get started on this project. 
The previous owners had the room (and ceiling) painted a very dark green.  We added the bead board and trim work shortly after we moved in to lighten the room up a bit.

Well, thanks to Cutting Edge Stencils and some hard work, the room is exactly what I had imagined it would be.

We plan to replace the vanity and the flooring soon, so we didn’t bother to mess with those just yet (but I wanted to, ha!)

This was not my first stenciling project…. remember my living room accent wall?  That was also from Cutting Edge and it is called the Kerry Damask Stencil.  It was such an easy project, but made a huge impact.

I seriously adore all of their stencil choices.  I would probably stencil every room in the house, if my husband would allow that 
{he won’t… I asked}

If you have never stenciled before, don’t worry.  They have a ton of video tutorials for you to watch before you get started.  Also, check out their Facebook page to see a lot of inspiration pictures submitted by their adoring customers.

In addition to the stencil, it is also a wise investment to buy their patent-pending clip on level.  This takes the guesswork out of stencil placement!

A few of my other favorites are

The Leaf Stencil
Acacia Allover Stencil


The Tree Stencils  would be perfect for a kid’s room!

Tree-Stencil-Birds


Not only do they have awesome wall stencils, they also have a super great selection of smaller craft stencils.  So, even if you can’t (or don’t want to) paint walls, you can do something super crafty and fun like paint pillows or embellish furniture.  

I will be back on Wednesday to discuss the nitty gritty details like paint colors, accessories, a few helpful tips, some mistakes I made and how to avoid making them.  Make sure you check back in!  In the meantime, enjoy some more pictures before you enter the awesome giveaway!

    Your powder room looks AMAZING!!!! You have such a knack for picking colors that go well. I would do an accent wall in our bedroom of Orient Allover. Such a hard choice!!!

    It is fantastic!!

    I am liking the fishscale stencil

  • Robyn G.

    The powder room is fantastic! This is much, much better than wallpaper, and is easily customizable! Love the little red accents in the room also. I’d like to try the Spring Songbirds as a backdrop instead of a headboard in my bedroom. Gorgeous!

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/12641720669667773681 Lexi

    How lovely! I’m digging the Leaf Stencil as well, I’d like to try it out on a table we just scored!

    Oh, I would love their Tree and bird stencil. There are so many to choose from, what a great site. I think I would use this stencil to make a family tree on our living room wall, and a cute bird tree in our son’s room. Thanks for the heads up on this site

    That looks great! I need to do this to my hall bath. It has wallpaper and is soooo outdated. I would love to use a casablanca design.

  • kristen

    Stenciling has gone to a whole new level…I remember my Mom stenciling borders, etc and my sister-in-law stenciling small items in the baby’s room but nothing like this! These stencil are so classy and make a huge impact, for sure. Thank you for the opportunity. I think your family room and powder room look awesome!

    I love the Birch Forest allover stencil!

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/03907840240185085226 CecilyT

    I like all of them, but the Kagami Allover Stencil is really neat and different. If we do the office, I might use the Parsley Blooms one tone-on-tone for a calm vibe.

    I love the allover paisley stencil!
