A Peek Inside My Brain & A Giveaway from Cutting Edge Stencils!

I know, I have been a stenciling fool as of late. I’m not done yet either!

Those are my most recent stenciling projects (paisley table, Indian table, Texas forever sign, dog house end table). You might be thinking “Girl, you can’t stencil everything! Your house is going to look ridiculous!” Here’s the thing…out of those four stencil projects the only one I kept was the “Texas Forever” sign, the rest were given away to family.  Plus the Texas sign is barely even stenciled AND  it’s outside, so it doesn’t count.  This means I’m allowed to do some stencil projects in my own home. Not that I will get to them anytime soon, first we have some other things we need to get done….like the kitchen. You were all thinking it anyway…yes, one day we do plan on finishing the kitchen!

Anyway, let me tell you some of my future stenciling ideas.

First, I’ve been looking for a dresser to make into an entertainment center. Our record player isn’t working anymore because the storage isn’t very usable (you can read a tiny bit about it in my first post ever). Here is a picture of it in our apartment in New York…

That things a goner…we’ll probably be giving it to a family member. Do y’all want to be in my family or what? Anyway, the new entertainment center/dresser  will get painted, then have a bare wood/reverse stencil peeking through in a single off center vertical stripe. I want to use this acacia stencil

I only want to use one or two vertical lines though, not the whole thing. Does that make any sense? Probably not, but hopefully you at least are getting a kick out of how my brain works.

Idea numero dos – My little “hallway” leading from the living room to the master bedroom. Here it is now…

 It’s boring. I don’t really like my tree painting. Something must change.

I have two idea’s for this space. The first is to use the birch forest stencil and make it into a little, well, forest. It’s small space, so it can handle something funky. Here is what that stencil looks like…

OR, I want to cover the walls in white planks, like this…

(SOURCE)

Either way it’s also getting a super glamorous mini chandelier :)

 Idea three –

The master bedroom is getting a makeover. Hold on, let me start over. The master bedroom is getting a makeover as soon as we finish the kitchen.

My stencil idea has to do with the floor. We currently have carpet in there…horrible, ugly, stained, nasty nasty carpet. (Can you tell I hate carpet?)  My plan is to rip it all out and paint the concrete floors. I’m thinking they will be white, or possibly a slightly tan or slightly blue kinda white. Then I’ll give it a subtle stencil treatment, like this…

(SOURCE)

…except even more subtle, more of a tone on tone look. Perhaps one tone will be shimmery…I haven’t ironed out all the details yet :)  I’m thinking of using one of these two stencils…

(stencil 1 , stencil 2)

Anyway, those are some of my stencil ideas for my house. Don’t even get me started on all the non stencil ideas! People are always asking me if I’m worried about running out of ideas and not having anything to write about. No, never. Running out of ideas is never going to be an issue, y’all have no clue how many projects I have in my head at any given time. My big issue it time, not idea’s.

Now let’s get to the reason y’all are here…a stencil giveaway!

  7. I love the Paisley and want it to stencil a desk for our daughter.

  8. Shelley D. says:

    I love all of the tree/leaf stencils……I am crazy about trees/leaves and their colors, especially in the fall.

  9. You make stenciling look so easy! I’ve been thinking about trying the Vision Allover Stencil in my living room. Hopefully I’ll win my chance! Thanks

  13. I love the Nadya Damask Stencil!

  14. Well, I can see the Lily Scroll Allover Stencil being used on the top of a dresser that I need to paint and stain. It is just perfect for that space! Thank you for the chance.

  15. Stephanie says:

    I love each of those ideas; can’t wait to see the finished projects. You didn’t ask for my opinion but I personally really like the forest for your hallway. And the diamond patterned stencil will be so pretty as a floor. I also have a concrete basement floor I want to paint, it’s a good place to have some fun. If I win you the stencil, after much deciding, I think I would like the Fuji allover. Thanks for sharing all your wonderful ideas.

  16. Dana Stradley says:

    I have shared your stenciled dining table post with sooooo many people since I discovered it. I sold a set a year ago that I totally could have done that with, but such is life…I loved all the stencils, but since I am a beginner, I would really love the Bon Appitit stencil for my kitchen. Thanks so much, I really enjoy your creativity.

  17. Westbury Stair Riser Stencil. My mom has an old victorian house with a very bland staircase. It would look beautiful!

  18. Jennifer says:

    Hard to pick just one. I really like the Casablanca craft stencil. It’s simple yet elegant. Just plain purdy!

  19. I love the Diamond Damask Stencil and I hope I win it! On another note, thanks so much for your entertaining and informative blog!!

  20. I have been saving tables since i read your 1st blog with the Paisley Stencil! That may be my favorite but the Diamond Damask is a close 2nd and inching up! Been saving ideas for finishing my basement.. Cement floor.. Aiming for 3 different areas or, “rooms” with nice borders.. Oh the possibilities! So glad i found your blog!

  21. Kathryn Franks aka @Thrushiebaby says:

    7 Stars Stencil is AWESOME!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE

  22. Vanessa Barr says:

    I love the Gabrielle Damask stencil. I really want to “save” a table or two with it :)

  23. Danielle H says:

    Vintage Paisley Stencil – I need a table just like the one you did!

  24. Where were those Damask stencils a few months ago when I did a wall in my house??? Wish I had known about Cutting Edge sooner! I just recommended them (for the chandelier stencil) to someone today after stumbling across your blog. Although I want to own every stencil they show, I MUST and will try the Indian Inlay on some end tables that desperately need beautification. Just what I was looking for!!! Glad I found you.

  25. So hard to choose. I really love the paisley, but my husband finds it too busy. For the next project I’m planning, I think maybe Fuji or Fusion would be the right balance of simple geometry + sophistication.

  26. If only we didn’t have to sleep…! I love the Paisley stencil, but that’s not the one I would pick. I already have it and the Wispy Leaves stencil. I used the Paisley to beautify a pair of end tables (in my blog post listed below). The Wispy Leaves stencil is for my dining room tile. Next on my wish list would be either the Pebbles stencil for my utility room floor, or one to use for an inlay technique–maybe Kathy Peterson’s Lattice or Fleur craft stencils. Thanks for introducing me to Cutting Edge Stencils!

  27. Karen Cobb says:

    I would love the Spring Songbirds Wall Stencil for my new grand daughters nursery!

  28. Danielle says:

    I love the Moroccan Dream Allover Stencil! I think its a subtle way to add interest to a large space!

  29. I have to say, your floor idea is phenomenal. I am not sure if you are looking for opinions but I must say . . . stencil 2 would be an amazing pattern on such a large canvas! :) I also love the dog house you created that allows for pampering a pup without sacrificing style.

    A dresser as an entertainment stand is amazing! I just completed mine and I am sooooo happy with it, it’s now my favorite piece in our house.

    I would love to be considered in the contest you are hosting. If I had to pick a stencil from their site I would have to say that the Anna Damask stencil is spectacular! Fingers crossed . . .

    I am already looking forward to your next post . . . I can’t wait to see what you come up with next!

  30. Hi Ashley,
    I love the Mermaid Allover Stencil. It’s bold and beautiful! Thanks again for the giveaway. :)

  31. Looking forward to seeing your stencil projects! I would love to have the Allover Paisley stencil to do the top and sides of this old apothecary cabinet I found at a garage sale last year – for $10!! It’s already perfect for craft storage, and I can’t wait to beautify it. Thanks for hosting the giveaway :)

  32. Love the shipibo stencil!!!

  33. The Houndstooth All Over stencil is all over (pun intended) my brain thinking of where and what I can do with this!

  34. Lilpeach says:

    Well, I’m nut sure! Since I, too, will be ripping, shredding, pulling out, and doing whatever else I can to rid my little house of that disguting, nasty, stinky, ugly, did I say disgusting?, carpet, I want to paint the cement floors. I’ve never done it and unlike you, who will actually do it, I’m still thinking and dreaming. And that Turkish Tulip Allover might just be perfect! Not nearly as perfect as Tim Riggin’s, his last toast, the whole show and the fact that you can commemorate it as a legit Texan right there on your porch. I’m not often jealous, but that one got me. I miss them still, don’t y’all? What happened to grandma? And Tim’s little bit of property? Yeah. I miss em.

  35. I looove the casablanca allover stencil…so pretty, and can be used pretty much anywhere in my house!

  36. Linda Southworth says:

    I LOVE Cutting Edge Stencils!! I just completed a shower curtain using a basic paint drop cloth and added the dandelion stencil in shades of blue/green. It turned out great! You can’t ever have too many of these can you? I hope not. My next project when I get the beautiful GINGKO stencil is to stencil the entire wall behind my bed. Would love to win!

  37. I LOVE the paisley stencil. There are several others that I also really like but I am really crushing on paisley right now.

  38. I love the Fusion craft stencil as well as the Ammonite ones (any of them, haha).

    I love the paisley and the damask stencils.

    Grace

  40. Victoria C says:

    I love ANY of the geometric stencils! I think they are so fresh and crisp looking in any type of decor.

  41. Martha Sharpe says:

    Ashley I enjoy your blog. You have a creative mind and what is even more awesome is that you get these beautiful projects done with two babies! Very inspirational. The stencil projects are beautiful. I like the Chinese Ginkgo Stencil by Kim Myles. I would like to repaint my wood floor and use this stencil for added interest.

  42. I love the Nadya Damask stencil! Thanks for the chance to win! :)

  43. Whitney Breck says:

    I have never used a stencil before and if I had to choose one to begin with, it would be the ‘Moroc-n-Roll Allover Stencil’! I see a lot of potential and different variations that could come from it.
    Thank you again for sharing all of your projects and inspirations!

  44. Catherine says:

    i LOVE the “Rabat Allover Stencil”

  45. I love the paisley stencil that you did on the first table and I love the Vintage Paisley! It would look super cute in my older daughter’s bedroom! Love your work!!!!!

  46. Ashley,
    I love all your projects! If I had to choose just one, I would go with the Indian Inlay Furniture Stencil! Too bad it isn’t there isn’t a circle pattern though. Keep up the fantastic work!

  47. Thank you for being such a creative inspiration (even if I haven’t applied any of it yet!!) One of my favorite stencils is “Gabi’s Brocade Stencil”. Keep on rockin’ your awesomess!!

  48. I think the Zamira Allover Stencil would be perfect for the wooden table we inherited from August’s Dad that we’re looking to re-finish!
    Megan@ The Running Doc recently posted..Thursday TidbitsMy Profile

  49. I love the Oasis all-over stencil– it would be perfect to use on the doors of the cabinet I’m working on! Thanks for the chance to win!

  50. I love the Zagora stencil!

  51. I am a huge fan of almost all of their stencils but I think I would do something with the Casablanca Allover stencil for my first project.

  52. Melissa M. says:

    I love the Zagora allover stencil or the Paisley…Thanks for the chance!

  53. I love all those projects! What a great giveaway, I would love to get one of the tree/leafy stencils sometime.

  54. I love the fossil stencils. My husband is a rockhound and wannabe geologist. We turned our formal dining room into his “rock room”, with display cabinets of his prized specimens of rocks, minerals and fossils. I love the idea of using the stencils with a plaster treatment around his work area!

  55. Your ideas are fantastic – especially the master bedroom floor! I have a hankering for stenciling some curtains. My favorite stencil for this project is the Zagora pattern all over stencil! Thanks for the chance to win!

  56. I like the chain link or the birch or the nogoya or the fuji- there are so many to choose from! I think my favorite is the metro

    Dee recently posted..Join Us As We Remodel Our New HouseMy Profile

  64. I love the birch forest stencil!!

  65. Nickie Moseley says:

    I just love ANY Damask – guess I would pick the Diamond Damask – I was just shopping for a stencil yesterday – hope I can get one from here!!

  66. The Wild Berry Damask stencil for me – http://www.cuttingedgestencils.com/damask-stencil-berry.html Pretty :)

    Love your blog! :D

  67. Kate Ostlund says:

    After seeing your paisley table, I can’t get that pattern out of my mind! I LOVE me some paisley! I want to stencil my very boring bathroom and make it fun!

  68. I actually like your idea of using the Birch Tree Forest for the hallway. My hallway is pretty dark and blah. I also saw it on 4 Men and 1 Lady blog. It looked awesome.

  69. First of all, thanks for your inspired ideas! They are fun and creative! I love the Zamira all-over stencil–I plan to use it in our foyer on the wall you would see as you enter our house. I think it would look fabulous!

  71. Casablanca Allover Stencil! I would love to do my bedroom in this gorgeous stencil

  72. Tough to choose!! :) Love the Anastasia Damask Stencil right now.

  73. I LOVE your idea for stenciling your floor I think it would look so cool! I have been wanting to try my hands at painting a rug. I think the Anemone Grande Flower Stencil, Peony Grande Flower Stencil, and Zinnia Grande Flower Stencil would make a beautiful design together.

  74. Gwen Windham says:

    I think that the Spring Songbirds Wall Stencil would be great for the wall over my garden tub! LOVE these stencils– they are so pretty!! :-) Thank you for the chance to win one!!

  83. Jenifer Welch says:

    It would be really hard to choose but I have narrowed it down to pebbles all over stencil, or the chain link all over stencil. Thanks for haveing a give away. I have been looking for stencils for my bedroom makeover.

  94. AlleyKitten says:

    The Cat Stencil please.

  95. I love the Harlequin Trellis Allover Stencil…it can be used for so many projects…Beautiful!

  96. WyoGirl22 says:

    I love the Zamira Craft Size Stencil! This would be great to use as a pillow design (like they had shown), but for sooooo much more! I could picture it on tote bags, a handpainted rug, a handpainted vase, woodburned in a serving platter or salad bowl, goodness I could just keep going on and on!

  97. Crystal Bercher says:

    I absolutely love the Paisley all over Stencil! I want to do the design on our dining room table!

  98. Amanda Turpin says:

    I love the Paisley Stencil!

  99. I absolutely LOVE the Paisley allover pattern. I have been wanting to try this in my new master bedroom as an accent wall behind the bed, so winning this would be perfect!

  100. Rachel VanOrnum says:

    I am absolutely torn between the Chain Link All over and the Moroc-n-roll allover.

  101. My favorite is the Harlequin Trellis Allover Stencil! Thanks!

  102. Erica Whatley says:

    My favorite is the Aladdin Allover Stencil

  103. Ashley, first off I adore your blog and I can’t stop reading!! I had never thought of stenciling furniture (or stenciling things in general) before reading your posts. I love the look, and I would love to try it but they are rather pricey! So.. if I were to win your giveaway, I would chose the Zamira craft stencil and the Casablanca craft stencil. :)

  104. the paisley all over stencil is my favorite! i love what you did with your texas forever sign! clear eyes full heart can’t loose! (:

  105. Jennifer says:

    Oh my goodness- how to choose just one?! I think we might like the Marrakech Trellis Allover Stencil for our new bedroom. Thanks for the chance!!

  106. Theresa says:

    Shipibo Allover Stencil!

  107. We like the Large Tree & Birds Stencils for our kids’ nursery.

  108. I love the paisley stencil you used! I’ve got a chair that would look amazing with some stenciling!

  109. I love the Fleur Craft Stencil!! I have a table you’ve inspired me to paint and stencil the top…that stencil might be just what I need. I love your blog and love reading about all your projects and your adorable kids. Keep up the good work!

  110. The Paisley All Over Stencil has been calling my name since you first introduced me to it! In the month or two since my first introduction I have changed and come up with new places to use it. As of now I have a small hallway wall that is crying for some attention!

    Side Note: I LOVE your Texas pride, sarcasm, and dirty cowboy treatment! Thank you for sharing all of your projects and opening your home to us!

  111. Love your work! I also love the Zamira Allover stencil, it would be perfect for my dining area. :) Thanks for the chance to win!

  112. I must confess that as soon as I saw the table you did with the Indian Inlay, I drug my kitchen table outside and got to work sanding and staining. Next step: the stencil! If I were to win, i’d hands down choose the Indian Inlay Stencil by Kim Myles :)

  113. LOVING the birch stencil. LOVE. ING.

  114. You do fantastic work, and you inspired me to make a Salvation Army run, where I found a new dresser and table that I will be stripping down and bringing back to life… I would choose the “All Over Paisley” stencil, and I have to say it is simply because of the work you have done with it….. If “Cutting Edge Stencils” hired you as a representative I could only imagine how much their sales would increase… They have a great website, but actually seeing the product used by an everyday consumer, trial and error, gives an inexperienced hobbyist like me the confidence to try the product… Win or lose, I will still be following your blog, Great Job creating, and Inspiring!

  115. Jacquie says:

    I just LOVE the inspiration of your blog!! I am definitely drawn to the Allover Paisley stencil, since I am known as “Paisley Girl” LOL. I also love the Parsley stencil!! Thanks for the opportunity to win one of these fabulous stencils!! The ideas are running into each other in my head!!

  116. Wow! Amazing work! I am inspired! :)
    My fave stencil is the Peacock Headdress, definitely! Thanks so much!

  117. Wow, they have so many wonderful designs! It was hard to choose, so I narrowed it down to two. :) The Chain Link Allover stencil and the Hand Forged Craft stencil.

    Thank you for sharing your designs. Your projects are beautiful.

    Kym

  118. Stephanie Cleveland says:

    I love the Moraccan Dream all over stencil!

  119. Wow, stencils are pricey. Thanks for the chance to win one. I like the Nagoya allover stencil.

  120. Alison Snead says:

    I love the Moroccan Dream Allover Stencil! Your blog is a great read-your intelligent and witty, great combo! Keep up the great work and positivity :)

  121. Diggn’ the Indian Inlay Furniture Stencil. SO much, in fact, I dreamed of it last night! Thanks for sharing all you do and giving us less than crafty gals inspiration to saddle up and try it too. Good Luck to all of you stencil enthusiast out there !

  122. I love the Ikat Samarkand Allover pattern myself.

    You do beautiful work!

  123. Nagoya allover!

  124. I choose Athena Allover stencil. Thanks for the great ideas. Love you blog .. Megha

  125. I would pick the Japanese Maple Branch stencil. Love it! …and I know exactly where I’d put it.

  126. Paisley All Over is still my favorite. (:

  127. Megan Smith says:

    I really love the all over paisley! Ive been wanting to do my kitchen table ever since I saw your first post!! It’s gorgeous!

  128. How about the allover paisley or a border stencil?

  129. Tammy Hoffa says:

    I like the Daisy Crazy kit #2

  130. I can’t wait to use the birch forest in our master bedroom!

  131. Cathy Reeves says:

    I love the Japanese Maple stencil; I have 2 in my front yard, and they are a delight to me whenever I see them.

  132. Allison Godkin says:

    I’m loving your blog… your ideas are totally do’able and given the time (groan) I plan to do some in my house… i love your idea of doing the floor in a subtle stencil… I’d LOVE the Paisley All Over stencil and I’d love to do a wall in a dark colour, then stencil over it with the same colour (only glossy) to get that subtle effect… thanks for all the great ideas!

  133. I am lovin’ that paisley stencil.

  134. I am obsessed with the Paisley Allover because I am still thinking about the dining table you did in an older post! love it!

  135. Monique says:

    I really love all of the “tree” stencils. I’m redoing my master bedroom, and I think the Magnolia stencil would add just a “touch of class” to one wall that is dying for a special “something!” Thanks for having this giveaway…and I love your use of stencils!

  136. Ok, seriously. I just stopped by to thank you for the table stencil inspiration (mine turned out amazing!) and you have this?!?! Thank you for sharing the stencil website. We had a hard time finding large stencils in our area. I think if I won, I would pick the Funky Wheel Wall Stencil, but then again, who can choose just one? Thanks for the opportunity to win, but mostly thank you for sharing your sources and inspiring me.
    Amber recently posted..I have to give credit where credit is due. I was inspired by…My Profile

  137. My favorite is “Anna Damask” but I would probably choose a paisley.

  138. I would love to use the vines allover stencil on a coffee table and some shelves. I am looking forward to trying to replicate the rustic stained look on the coffee table. It is an old piece my uncle made in his youth, but it has been beaten up pretty badly over the years. I think stenciling and staining would be the perfect way to keep it in use but update it a bit. Thanks for the ideas!

  139. Donna Hines says:

    My first choice, if I had to choose only one, would be the allover paisley stencil. Love it!

  140. I like the zinnia grande stencil in the nursery section!

  141. SuzyMcQ says:

    Love the birch trees for my daughter’s newly decorated and painted room!

  142. I like the Virginia Creeper. I plan on doing a stencil on my kitchen table based on your table top creations :)

  143. So difficult to choose…I finally asked for my husband’s opinion and instead of just me being unable to make a decision, he couldn’t either. I wrote down all potentials on a pieces of paper and picked one out of a bowl. Virginia Creeper Border/Stripe won. That’s the one for us!

  144. Kristina Butler says:

    Lily Scroll Allover stencil!! If I don’t win this I will give you my address and you can just mail me your paisley stencil to borrow. Ok? Thanks! Lol

  145. Jerri Imgarten says:

    I LOVE the Vision Allover Stencil!

  146. Amanda Miller says:

    My pick would be Allover Paisley Stencil so I can re-do my table and bedroom suite! You are amazingly crafty and you rock!

  147. Karen G says:

    I like the damask stencils…this particular stencil website seems to be popping up all over the place in blogland so this isn’t the first time I’ve entered a giveaway, but wouldn’t it be awesome if I won this time? :^)

    I get so much inspiration from your blog. I found you via Pinterest. Thanks for sharing your ideas! I like the Tropical Plant stencil.

  149. I have fallen in love with the Paisley Allover Stencil that you used on the white, dark walnut and blue table. I have tried your Dirty Cowboy treatment (I posted to you about that!) on my bedside table but would absolutely LOVE the all-over stencil for my daughter’s dresser, which my sister purchased for $4.99 at a thrift store. I would also use the stencil on the small table I found on the street yesterday!

  150. Hi Ashley,
    Gosh, CE has so many to choose from. I really like the Butterfly Dance wall stencil. Just found you today and now following along via email. Can’t wait to check out the rest of your blog.

  151. Ashley- Just found your blog via Pinterest. Love all your work and the use of the wonderful Cutting Edge stencils! Can’t decide between the Ikat Bukhara allover stencil or the Birch Trees…. Hope I win!, if not, well just guess I will have to buy :-) them. Looking forward to reading more of your past posts.

  152. I am kind of obsessed with the Marrakech craft sized stencil and the Dandelion stencil is just too stinkin’ adorable. Just sayin’!

  153. I completely adore the Houndstooth Allover stencil. If I won, no wall or piece of furniture would be safe from stenciling!!

  154. I am in love with the Vision Allover Stencil! It would go great in my hallway.

  155. LOVE LOVE LOVE the Paisley Allover Stencil. DIY with such a beautiful stencil and a college student’s budget is a little difficult though! Thanks so much for your inspiration and consideration! :)

  156. LOVE the Indian stencil! I can think of so many things I would use it on!!!

  157. It is so hard to choose! My favorites are the Paisley Allover stencil as well as the Indian Inlay and the Fleur Craft stencil :)

  158. Paisley Allover has my vote! Thank you for doing this drawing!!!

    I’d get the Indian Inlay stencil and give it to my wife as a late anniversary present LOL! At least if I get her something she really wants then I don’t get in as much trouble for it being late, right?!

    I love,love,love the paisley allover stencil!! I’ve been daydreaming about that stencil!!

  161. I LOVE your paisley dining table project, it turned out so gorgeous! I’m a big fan of paisley patterns anyway, so the paisley stencil would be my first choice, no contest. The birch forest pattern is very lovely, too, and I bet it would look great in your hallway. Thanks for the opportunity to win a stencil!

  162. Kristin Conn says:

    Love the paisley all over! And love your blog!

  163. I like the vintage paisley stencil. I just reprinted my kitchen table and would love to do that!

  164. Amy Warren says:

    I love your Blog!! Currently have my table sanded and just waiting for the right stencil to come along. I love the Zagora stencil! Would love to win…

    The Paisley All Over Stencil is my FAVORITE~~~

  167. I liked the Virginia Creeper Stencil

  168. Janelle says:

    Thanks for the tutorials really inspired me to refinish my kitchen table. Was thinking about “attempting” to make my own stencil and I’m not going very good with scissors or sharp knifes lol. Im so excited to see they had holiday stencils but I think I really do love the Gabrielle Damask Stencil. So many uses! Thanks

    When I saw your stenciled table on Pinterest and fell in love, I had no idea how expensive stencils were! I had just bought a house and a table exactly like the one you used just happened to be tucked up in the barn and I knew I had to copy your idea. Mine ended up quite different from yours (http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=3915027481371&l=da18bfb96c), but I absolutely love it and it’s all thanks to you :)

    If I won a stencil I’d love to have any of the geometric ones, especially Outside of the Box.

    I love the Zamira Allover Stencil!

  171. I (already) chose the Allover Paisley stencil — I was so inspired by your table AND LOVE PAISLEY with a PASSION!! But found some others that I could be inspired to use too :)

  172. I think this stencil is so romantic Spring Songbirds Wall Stencil! Choosing just one is impossible so this is one of many I will need in the near future!

    You inspired me to do my very first stencil only a couple weeks ago! I repainted my fiancee’s ugly brown kegerator and turned it into a very stylish appliance–if I do say so myself. I love the Allover Paisley…your table turned out beautiful and I have a dresser that needs a make-over :)

  174. Ohhhhh my gosh! I love Cutting Edge stencils. I’d really love the Freedom! Stencil kit.

  175. The Paisley Scroll stencil used it today on pedestal table — worked great!
