PBJ STORIES’ CHEVRON CEILING
Today we will be kissing 8-month pregnant Pamela’s pedicured feet for such a tremendous stencil idea and even better execution! She’s the mastermind behind the blog PBJ Stories, and she transformed her anticipated baby girl’s nursery with our CHEVRON STENCIL ON THE CEILING! We seriously cannot get enough. Pamela is a stencil GOD! (But really!) Take a look at this insanity, and keep in mind just how pregnant she was while painting! Pamela says, “All in all- if an 8 month preggo woman can do it, ANYONE CAN DO IT ;)”
Pamela plans to reveal her most helpful tips and tricks to get this look with her readers soon, but Cutting Edge Stencils got the inside scoop first for our dedicated readers! Of course we call Pamela a stencil god for a reason, and here’s why. Not only was she far into her third trimester as she painted, but Pamela’s ceiling was textured, and she did NOT use spray adhesive (in fear of the fumes hurting the baby)! Instead, Pamela just used some painters tape, a ladder, our dense foam roller, AND the most gorgeous paint! She applied only half a quart of Modern Master’s Metallics paint in Warm Silver! To prevent bleeding, Pamela made sure to use little paint on her roller. But, for the slight spots that did bleed, Pamela stuck little pieces of tape by them to remember where a touch up was needed! (So SMART!) Pamela’s trick to not breaking your neck while stenciling a ceiling? She took a short break in between each time she stenciled the single sheet of pattern. As Pamela rested on her back, gazing up at the “under-construction” stenciled ceiling, the paint on the ceiling and the stencil began to dry, further preventing smudging and smearing! The decorating idea took quite a while to complete, but the results are so gorgeous! Also, completing a stencil project like this on your own is super satisfying! It looks smokin’, Pamela!
