In keeping with my goal of starting to blog, I thought it would be fun to share the projects we have completed in our home in the last 3 years. Starting with part 2 of this post. I only posted “My Pretty Powder Room part 1” on February 4, 2013. Geez! I’m surprised you are still reading my blog. And, THANK YOU for still reading it.
I just started a new project and am pondering on a couple of options to add that something special, one idea involves getting a new stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils. I love that classy look and pizazz that these large scale stencils create and, BONUS!, when you are tired of the look, you can just lightly sand and paint over it.
I am the proud owner of these two stencils:
Rabat Allover Stencil (large scale):
(design secret: large scale prints make a small space feel bigger!)
You will never guess what I used the Verde Damask Stencil for. I will share that in the near future! Needless to say, it’s AWESOME!
Here are pictures of my finished powder room. It’s hard to get good pictures of a small room. These were taken at Christmas. It’s fun to add a little holiday punch to such a pretty room.
Wall color are the ever popular… Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter
(a beautiful, neutral gray with warm undertones)
and Kwal Howell Mistaya (the white we’ve used in our entire home)
Honestly, I haven’t been able to take pictures that do the room justice. Everyone LOVES the room and it’s a fun, unexpected surprise when they open the door. It’s been over 2 years since I stenciled the wall and I am still in LOVE with it.
I’ve even bought a new mirror that is as grand as my wall:
Now to find an old dresser that fits to replace the pedestal sink… one step at a time, right?

Info on the camera prints coming next! (I’m a camera collector)
P.S. I am not endorsed by Cutting Edge Stencils, although by budget would like me to be.
