Stencils and Color Combinations to Steal This Cozy “Apartment Therapy” Look!

Good morning, my stencil lovin’ friends?  Cutting Edge Stencils is having a T-riffic Tuesday, especially after yesterday’s NEW stencil release!  Have you seen them?  Make sure you check out all the newbies here and then tell us what you think in the comments below.

But getting back to today’s stencil post.  We happened to have some downtime this past weekend, so were browsing one of our favorite sites, Apartment Therapy, when we stumbled upon JoAnn’s Creature Comforts Home Tour.  It had us at hello (shown in the kitchen).  JoAnn managed to combine a tasteful dose of bold graphic patterns, touches of mid-century modern, and one killer DIY project that made her home look both comfortable and sophisticated.  Sounds pretty UN-believable, right?  We thought so! And when we admire a space, we try to recreate it using our stencils and Benjamin Moore paint colors!  Come meet JoAnn and let’s see how you can replicate her sophisticated style…

Stolen Item No. 1: Chevron Kitchen Rug

Cozy yet inviting is how we see this kitchen.  We love how she’s added splashes of color using decor accessories.  That adorable accent rug could easily be replicated with a little help from one of our stencil patterns!

To STEAL THE LOOK of the rug in this kitchen, use Cutting Edge Stencils’ Chevron Allover Stencil, a zippy striped design.  Consider stenciling a color like Benjamin Moore’s buttered yam AF-230.  This delicious deep orange fosters the good feelings of home and happiness, making it the perfect choice for a kitchen rug! Check out this tutorial on how to stencil a rug.

Stolen Item No. 2: Moroccan Stenciled Accent Wall

Now this look is not as hard to steal! 🙂  This gorgeous Moroccan stenciled wall happens to be one of our stencils.  JoAnn added a little pattern punch to her living room by stenciling an accent wall.  Do you love it?  Good, then let us tell you how to get this gorgeous look!

To STEAL THE LOOK of the living room, use Cutting Edge Stencils’ Casablanca Allover Stencil.   First paint your wall a neutral gray color like Benjamin Moore’s rock gray 1615 and then stencil the Moroccan print in simply white OC-117. The result as you can see is absolutely stunning!  Watch this video on how to stencil an accent wall.

Stolen Look No. 3: Beautiful Birches Wall Art

We love wall art and better yet we love stenciling wall art.  JoAnn’s friend crafted her the tree ink drawing that she proudly displays in her bedroom.  If you love this look but don’t have a crafty friend like JoAnn does, then we have the perfect solution!

Furniture Stencils Give Old Furniture A Fresh Face

Good morning, my Cutting Edge Stencils friends.  Did you know that furniture stencils and paint can help uncover the hidden charm of your curbside treasure?  DIY decor has never been easier to craft now that we have a large selection of stencils for furniture.  Our craft size patterns can help transform an old item into something new and functional.  Come see how one of our furniture makeover mavens freshens a tired table into a stunning showpiece.

We’d like to introduce you to Quia, the interior designer and furniture restorer behind QZ Design Gallery.  Quia had inherited an old brown table. The wooden table had wrought iron legs and a top that was dated and dull.  Despite its present condition, Quia felt that paint and pattern could easily freshen it up.  Here is what the table looked like before:

The first thing she did was tape off the legs and prime the tabletop. Then it was ready to be stained!

Quia decided to stain, glaze and antique the wooden table. Here is what it looked like after she completed that process.

Once the table had been stained and glazed, Quia was ready for the fun part, stenciling!  She browsed our furniture stencils to find the right pattern and selected the Rabat Craft Stencil.  This popular Moroccan-inspired pattern is perfect for crafting small DIY projects.

Quia placed the craft stencil in the center of the table.  She used painters tape to hold it in place and a dense foam roller to paint the pattern in an eye-catching blue.  After each section of the stencil was painted, Quia would lift the stencil and reposition so she could carry the pattern across the table.  Are you ready to see how it all turned out?  Here is Quia’s stenciled table.

Modernize Old Furniture Using Stencils

Learn How To Paint An Old Dresser Using Moroccan Stencils

Good morning, my Cutting Edge Stencils friends!  Rather than toss that old piece of furniture to the curb, we’re going to show you how paint and stencil patterns can rescue it!  Our furniture stencils make DIY furniture makeovers easy and affordable. Here is how one crafty blogger used the Rabat Furniture Stencil to freshen up an old dresser.  Come be inspired…

We’d like to welcome back Kammy, the creative blogger and home makeover queen behind Kammy’s Korner.   Kammy had a friend call her and offer her a curbside French Provincial dresser.  It was beat up with a broken drawer. Here is what it looked like:

Yikes! But this roadside cutie was about to become a trash to treasure story. Kammy loves to rescue roadside pieces and give them new life. She picked it up in her truck and brought it home. The first thing she did was lightly sand the dresser and give it a fresh coat of light graypaint.

It was already looking better with just a simple coat of paint. Unfortunately it had two broken drawers and fixing them would have been a time consuming challenge. Kammy decided to ditch the two broken drawers and create a cubby space.  Rather than leave it a solid color she chose to add a peek-a-boo pattern.  Kammy had previously used the Moroccan craft stencil on her stenciled mantel and felt it was perfect for this project.  We love when our stencils are reused for multiple project! Kammy had the Rabat Craft Stencil in a size small.

With her Moroccan pattern in hand, Kammy was ready to start stenciling!  She used blue painter’s tape to adhere the stencil to the wood.  Then she painted the stencil pattern in a darker gray using a dense foam roller. If you are recreating this project at home, be sure to roll off extra paint so it doesn’t bleed under the stencil. The key to stenciling is using very little paint.

Because the dresser was so large, she did need to lift the stencil and reposition to finish her project. Ready to see how it all turned out?  Here is her stenciled provincial dresser with stenciled cubbies.
