Giveaway: Cutting Edge Stencil

***********This giveaway is now closed.************

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 . (affiliate link)

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.

Even better, one of you is going to get the chance to win a stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils too! One lucky Lovely Etc. reader will win a stencil of their choice (up to a $50 value) from Cutting Edge Stencils.

    I love your floor! I have a new closet that needs to match my old 1928 hardwoods, but this will help beautify the ugly MDF until we can make that happen! I’m a friend of Cutting Edge on FB as I used their Acacia on the alcove wall in my bedroom (tone on tone green-gold) and it’s gorgeous! Great product.

    love cutting edge stencils… I’ve used 3 of them already. They are good quality, flexible without being too thick, easy to clean. And great designs. I’m contemplating buying the morrocan theme and the birch tree for new 2012 projects. Love the floor! I think it would be overwhelming without the boarders around the walls which really break up the busy-ness and create flow – very cool

    My favorite stencil is either the large lemon tree, the olive tree or the pear tree, along with your paisly stencil! It’s too hard to choose; they’re all so beautiful!

    It doesn’t seem fair that we have to pick ONE favorite ;-) I’ll have to say that the Athena Allover comes in as my favorite right now – until I look again.

    I think I’d go with the same paisley you used on the floor as I also have a floor to do & want it to look like the old 1930s carpeting.

    My favorite Cutting Edge Stencil would possibly be between your Paisley Allover or Kyoga Allover–they have so many that I LOVE!!!

  11. Allison Ghorley says

    Casablanca is my favorite stencil. I liked them on Facebook, tweeted, shared, and pinned. I’m SO GLAD I found your post! We’re about to start a rehab and I really wanted to find a good resource for stenciling floors. I will be visiting your blog often and Cutting Edge Stencils will be getting a lot of business from me this year!

  12. says

    I totally want that paisley stencil!
    Wow, your floors came out beautiful!
    My daughter wants the same floor for her room, and we’ve been tryting to decide what to do if the hardwood under her carpeting isn’t in great condition. Well, now we know.

    I really love this paisley pattern. It is so vintage-looking. You absolutely made a wonderful job. Stencilling really is a fun thing to do and it does not require special trainings to make your floors look so great. Thank you for this post.

    You really did an incredible job on this. Indeed, stencilling is one creative way to add more life to floors. It is fun and easy to do that you will not even need the assistance of professional flooring contractors. You also have several design choices, such as this paisley print, to match your preferences and interior designs.
