Cutting Edge Stencil Giveaway ($50 value!)

I've been so excited for today's Giveaway from Cutting Edge Stencils! One lucky winner will receive his or her choice of any one reusable wall stencil, up to a $50 value! Keep reading to learn a little more about stenciling and to get details for the Giveaway entry.


If you read Home/DIY blogs, you know by now that a fresh coat of paint is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to update a room. Wallpaper is also making a huge comeback, but it can be pricey and very very time-consuming to to apply. The best way to merge the idea of a freshly painted room with patterned walls is with stencils!

The idea of stenciling may conjure up bad memories of 1980s sponge painting, pastel geese, and awful faux finishes, but I have good news. Stencils have come a long way, and Cutting Edge Stencils has a site full of updated, modern patterns that will not only fit your style...but will also fit your budget!

I love that the site shows examples of the stencils "in action," rather than just showing us the pattern.

Here are just a few of my favorites:

Geometric-























Damask-























-Kids' Room and Nursery Stencils























The neatest part about Cutting Edge Stencils is that they provide plenty of how-tos...they even have a YouTube Channel stocked with stenciling tutorials! Here's a great beginner video if you're considering stenciling one of your own walls:

  20. I have to admit, my patience level usually means that stenciling isn't an option. But, since I'm in baby boy nursery mode, I'm LOVING the houndstooth allover stencil.

    Thanks for the chance, friend!
