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!
Clip-On Stencil Level
A few of my other favorites are 

The Leaf Stencil
Acacia Allover Stencil

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





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!

(giveaway closed!)

    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!!!

  2. Sarah February 11, 2013 at 12:17 pm #

    It looks FANTASTIC!!! Can I stick you in a box and FedEx you down to Alabama to do mine next? 😉 As far as the stencils, I’m absolutely in love with the chevron stencil they have too. Crazy about chevron. 😀

  3. Sheryl February 11, 2013 at 12:28 pm #

    As usual, your project is amazing! I would love to try the Rabat Allover stencil in our mudroom that we plan to work on this summer! I love all those stencils though!

  5. Jennifer@ClassicStyleHome February 11, 2013 at 12:56 pm #

    It looks wonderful! You got the room done so fast, too. I have that same basket on the toilet. It’s handy for a small bathroom.

  6. Kari Fischer February 11, 2013 at 1:36 pm #

    Beautiful work as always!! You are just amazing! After looking through all the stencils if I had to choose just one I would choose the SIMPLE RHYME ALLOVER STENCIL

    I’d love to try the Chevron Stencil pattern. I know it’s soo over-popular right now, but i still love it.

  27. Happier Than A Bird Quilts February 12, 2013 at 12:28 am #

    It is fantastic!!

    I am liking the fishscale stencil

  28. Robyn G. February 12, 2013 at 12:58 am #

    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!

  29. Lexi February 12, 2013 at 1:47 am #

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

    I would love the Marrakech Trellis Allover Stencil for my living room!

  33. Couchgirl13 February 12, 2013 at 3:21 am #

    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

  34. Kendal February 12, 2013 at 4:29 am #

    I love the kerry damask and chevron!!

  38. Linh C. February 12, 2013 at 3:26 pm #

    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.

  39. kristen February 12, 2013 at 3:59 pm #

    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!

    It looks amazing! I love the Rabat allover design for my bathroom.

    I love the Birch Forest allover stencil!

  44. CecilyT February 13, 2013 at 12:55 am #

    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.

  45. Aurora February 13, 2013 at 4:25 am #

    I love the allover paisley stencil!

  46. Bubble and Bean February 13, 2013 at 5:27 am #

    Your bathroom looks great! It’s a hard choice, but I think I would go with their Herringbone Allover Stencil.

  55. Brunette February 15, 2013 at 8:02 pm #
