So I’ve been slowly transforming our old playroom into a home office/craft room. Here’s what it looked like before…
Toys everywhere, a large dresser filled with off-season clothes, outdated drapes and chair rail border… yeah, desperately in need of a makeover.
The first step in transforming my new space: painting the walls yellow! I chose Evening Glow in an eggshell by Olympic.
I had such wonderful response from my daughter’s bedroom stencil a couple months back that I decided to use another design from Cutting Edge Stencils. This time I chose the Marrakech Trellis Allover Stencil. LOVE.
I also got Cutting Edge Stencil’s clip on level. This is the best investment ever! It just clips onto the top of your stencil and let’s you know if everything is level. Trust me, when you’re stenciling an entire room, this is worth every penny!
The little bonus stencils really helped me around the window, corners and light switches. Once I got past those areas, the rest of the stencil went relatively quickly! I worked on it last Wednesday and Thursday evenings after work for about 2-3 hours each night. Yes, might be too much for some, but trust me… the result is worth it! Wanna see?
Yes, I am in LOVE with the outcome! I was super weary about the yellow, but the white stencil really calmed it down and gave it a bit of sophistication. I still have a lot to do, like drapes and a desk chair, but I couldn’t wait to show you my progress!
