We'd like you to welcome back Janna , one of the Cutting Edge Stencils owners and a creative DIYer. Janna and her husband Greg stumbled upon a wooden table sitting curbside on their way to the office. Rather than leave it for trash, they picked it up and decided to give it a makeover using our stencils for furniture.
Rather than toss your old furniture to the curb, we want you to consider giving it a stenciled makeover. What sounds like an advanced project is actually so easy that even a beginner can do it. Today we're sharing a stencil tutorial showing how easy it is to makeover old nesting tables using our Passion Mandala Stencil. Let's take a look...
Hi Everyone, I hope all is well with you!Don't you just love brick walls? I love to walk into a restaurant and see an old brick wall or maybe even as a backdrop for a lovely vintage dresser that has been painted with an gorgeous color. I feel like every time I watch a show on TV lately, there is another awesome brick wall. Well, I decided to redo the wall at the top of my stairs in my home and make a faux brick wall.I will say, this project was quite easy, after I finally settled on a plan....
So, finally I finished my gnome village! I swear, I've been working on this forever now!! I think gnome or fairy gardens are the ultimate way to let your creativity shine!! And they seem to be staying trendy too. I wanted to create an indoor gnome garden which I could keep throughout the winter months...thus 'semi-permanent' in the title 😊 I decided to build it into my entertainment stand. My entertainment stand was plucked right out of the 80's... large, heavy, solid wood, super bulky, actually, pretty ugly! I bought at a thrift store and really didn't care if I ruined it . I began by cutting one of the shelves out ... Now, I certainly don't recommend sawing up your furniture ! But if your piece is like mine, why the heck not?😊
We... the Pickle and I, have an ever growing list of home improvement/nesting projects that we're working our way through... to really make our house OUR home... We decided to start with the shiplap wall in our living room... it was one of the easiest of the projects on our list and a great place to get started.
I have a girl crush on Joanna Gaines and when I grow up, i want to be her. Seriously. Not only are Chip and Jo the definition of "relationship goals", but Jo has made a career doing what she loves and has been such an inspiration to so many people along the way - myself included. Not to mention, she basically introduced the world to shiplap and for that, I am eternally grateful. Shiplap doesn't seem to have been used in the homes in east Tennessee so I wasn't able to salvage any and i definitely wasn't lucky enough to discover it behind some nasty drywall on the infamous "demo day." so we made our own and we spent less than $60 doing so!
We started out with a dingy, dark tan half bathroom painted by the previous owners. We knew we wanted to do something unique with the space and something that would brighten it up. Today I want to show you how we turned our bathroom into a fun room with my DIY Coastal Planked Wall tutorial using Plaid Crafts' FolkArt Milk Paint.
I added a real thin brick accent wall to my dining room!This is a project I have wanted to attempt for years. I had read about a few home decor bloggers that installed thin brick veneer in their homes and the results always looked amazing.Thin brick veneer is just like regular brick except it’s thin. It gives you the look of brick but with the ease of installing tile. You can put it on your walls, your floors, indoors or outdoors.If you’ve never installed tile and the thought of it feels intimidating, this is the project for you. The great thing about brick is that it looks better when it’s not perfect. I’m really into that “farmhouse” style Joanna Gaines has made popular over the past couple of years and a brick wall fits in perfectly with that aesthetic. If you mess up part of this project, it’s no big deal- brick walls are meant to have character.
I know some bloggers or painters who name their pieces. I’m not usually the naming kind, but I feel like this ‘lil gal needs a name. Maybe if I tell you her story, you could help me choose a name for her.She first came to my home after I purchased another cabinet which now holds all my Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint product on display. The owner was moving house and had been trying to sell this dresser as well as the cabinet I had just purchased. I wasn’t looking for a dresser, and the price she was wanting was not in my budget, so I politely said, “No, thank you,” and went on my way with the original cabinet I bought from her. I later received a phone call from the lady saying, “You know, I really like what you are doing, with the furniture you’re restoring, and this piece was special to me, but I have no room for it in my new home. I want you to have it.”
