When Cutting Edge Stencils contacted me and asked me if I would like to review their product and host a giveaway, I jumped at the chance. I have been in the process of adding some color and brightness to my finished basement. I knew stenciling a focal wall by the pool table would be perfect addition to the space. Cutting Edge Stencils has so many gorgeous patterns to choose from,
it was hard to narrow it down to just one. Ultimately I picked the Covington Allover pattern.
Here is the finished wall. GORGEOUS!!
This super cool wall took me less than two hours to complete...including cleanup time.
Let me tell you how easy this was.
I received a package from Cutting Edge Stencils which included my stencil, a roller and a clip-on level.
In addition to the allover stencil, Cutting Edge Stencils also included another stencil that is used to finish off the top of the wall. It's a mini stencil that allows for a perfect finished edge by the ceiling. Genius!
It also comes with step by step instructions. If you'd rather watch a video on how to stencil, Cutting Edge Stencils even has a "how to" video you can watch.
Here is the before photo.
I started in the center of my wall and clipped on the level they included. I kept the level on for the entire project which kept everything perfectly aligned. I used just a few small pieces of blue tape to keep the stencil in place. I know some people use spray adhesive to keep the stencil in place.
I have never tried that method as I seem to get pretty crisp clean lines without it.
I used paint I have leftover from my kitchen. It adds so much brightness to this side of the room.
I did an entire column and then added another column to the right and then another column to the left
and kept going back and forth to allow time to dry.
This is what I had after finishing the entire wall.
See the space up at the top - this is where the extra stencil
Cutting Edge Stencils included came in handy.
The extra stencil for the stop is incredibly valuable. I have stenciled before and getting a perfect line across the top is very difficult. This made my stenciling project so much easier.
The roller they included was pretty awesome as well. I had no issue with drips or debris left from the roller as I have with other rollers I have used in the past.
This entire 14 foot wall took less than two hours - even I'm impressed.
Yes I have stenciled before, but typically a single wall has taken me anywhere from 4-6 hours! Having a product that you don't have to fight with makes the entire process go so much faster and smoother. Another plus, the stencil cleans up beautifully. All of the paint came off easily and I stored it back in the bag that it came in for future use. I have never had a stencil clean off so completely. For me that's a huge plus because I would like to use this stencil again.
Here are a few more photos to show off my new wall.

Such a big difference!
