A few months ago Cutting Edge Stencils contacted me about reviewing one of their reusable stencils. I knew right away I would use the stencil for the plywood subfloors I was painting. After looking through all of their great choices, I chose the Paisley Allover Stencil.
I knew going in that this was going to be a huge project, but the actual stenciling went much faster than I anticipated. It took almost as long to tape and paint the border as it took to stencil the entire floor.
I used the tips from their handy how-to videos and the stenciled floor came off without a hitch.
I am extremely happy with my stencil choice. The pattern really hides the imperfections in the plywood floor. And all the curves and details of this design easily hide a few places where I got a little heavy-handed with the paint and there were minor splotches. You can see for yourself what a dramatic difference this simple stencil made for some plain old pieces of plywood.
I already have some great furniture projects in mind for this stencil.
