STENCIL ME THIS...
Ok, update time...
Since the last time I wrote, I have a new obsession! STENCILS! Now I know that might seem kind of old-fashioned, but hear me out! They are so easy to work with and they produce great results. My go to place for stencil designs is: www.cuttingedgestencils.com. The patterns are fun and unique. I am in the process of decorating my new house and I can't wait to add one of their trellis or fleur de lis stencil designs to the bead board behind my counter tops in the kitchen. It will add a small pop of pattern that won't be too overwhelming to the space, create a layered look over the texture of the bead board, add a personalized touch and most importantly....it won't break the bank! Getting brand new tile for a back splash can be pricey so I think this will be the perfect solution! Plus, I really want to keep the existing bead board. It fits in nicely with the 'USED' Chic Look I am going for.
As a side note, I also love stenciled floors! It adds a great 'designer touch' and also helps to add life to dull wood or concrete floors. Unfortunately for me, I don't have the right kind of flooring indoors to create this look, but I certainly do outside! I have a walk out deck area and underneath where the patio set is, I plan on adding a painted rug. How cool is that going to be?!?! Lol! I'm pretty excited about it...
Anyways, check out some of these great stencil examples! Maybe they'll help inspire your next project!
Let me help you get your 'think' on!
