Zamira Allover Shower Door
Diane, the writer of In My Own Style, started out like any ordinary home owner with a boring glass shower door and a dream. To pursue this dream, Diane gathered her stenciling gear provided to her by Cutting Edge Stencils. Along her journey, Diane coasted smoothly towards her dream of a beautiful stenciled decorative shower door because of the ease of using our stencils. She hemmed and hawed about using etching cream, but decided on white latex enamel paint, which ended up being the right path for her! Diane, made sure to avoid wrong turns by being especially preventative of seepage and drips! She used both spray adhesive and painters tape so that the dream and the stencils didn’t slip out of her grasp. Then she rolled off excess paint onto a paper towel and began to stencil without flaw! The process was a breeze, and Diane’s dream came true in less than one hour! Brava, Diane! (Did I mention I went gaga over this transformation?)
Birds on a Branch Door
Holly, from the blog 504 Main had a major issue with her drab door, which was especially giving her trouble after she remodeled her kitchen. You see, the ugly door was right next to the new kitchen, bringing down the whole mood. So to take a stand against the horrid door, Holly turned to Cutting Edge Stencils! She used our Birds on a Branch to fight off the Debbie Downer door! Here’s how she won this battle: Holly cleaned the glass, and then taped it off on the edges. Then she protected the well maintained surrounding area by putting down newspaper, and decided not to unhinge the door, leaving it standing for a fair fight! The final dominating blow that crowned Holly the winner of this battle was when she used our stencil! After a little struggle with the painting, Holly pinned her opponent by pulling out the big guns! She painted the door glass with DecoArt Gloss Enamels in Antique Gold, and the battle was over! Check out the stunning results below!
Iron Gate Mirror
When Erin, from the blog Lemon Tree Creations, wanted to add some flair to her decorative mirror, she made the right choice by turning to Cutting Edge Stencils! The stencil process was much the same as stenciling on a wall for Erin, and was a huge success! She did everything by the book, and got great results because of it! Erin might not have strayed from our stenciling rules, but her mirror definitely came out edgy! She cleaned the glass, used spray adhesive and a dense foam roller, and even rolled off excess paint onto a paper towel before touching her precious mirror! Erin applied two light coats of ivory latex paint (of course letting them dry in between), and finished her stenciled mirror in no time! Gorgeous transformation, Erin!
Casablanca Glass Frame
Check out this chic wall art! Cheri, from the blog DIY Club, stenciled this glass frame with our Casablanca stencil! She wanted to do something unique for daughter’s bedroom, and found a frame in a thrift store for $3! What a bargain shopper Cheri is! She discarded the photo that came with the frame and decided to beautify the glass to make it her own. To do so, Cheri used Krylon Frosted Glass Finish in White and a touch of magic! Cheri clicked her heels three times.. er.. I mean sprayed on three coats of paint, letting each dry for a half hour before adding more paint! She painted and sanded the frame to get a (damsel in) distress look! She glued the stenciled glass into the frame, and with the woosh of her wand, the project was complete! Maybe one day she’ll stencil some glass slippers too!
