Trellis Stencil Pattern with Metallic Paint


Our Blurry Office..


We recently purchased a house and carefully chose the room
 that would be our new office.
Unfortunately, I didn't take a good before picture so
I used the poor quality listing picture, hence the blurriness
(Is that a real word...)


I've been seeing a lot of trellis patterns in interior design and I'm totally in love.
Lets do a featured trellis wall!!
I researched many stencils and chose cuttingedgestencils.com
We're impatient so out goes the blow dryer!
on cool a setting of coarse.


It's very important to use a level when preparing a starting point
so your pattern stays level and consistent throughout
oh... and and tape the edge of the ceilings
 

 
   Make sure to keep the pattern level or you'll have a wall from
 Ripley's Believe It or Not.

                     

This is a before picture of the featured wall

I should mention we converted the closet into an open
space to place our office credenza.

Fits like a glove....
 



We used a metallic paint so taking a picture was challenging.
The pictures captured a halo.


 
I painted an abstract painting of lips in silver shades

  1. Hi - I love how it looks! Great job. Love that company - would like to use their stencils one day (I have been a Royal Design Studio fan for ages).

    Does Cutting Edge enlarge their patterns for you, do you know? I love the trellis pattern, but I feel that in some cases it may be a bit busy.

    Your office looks great - love the window treatment as well.

    How the heck do you work with your husband...I couldn't. Love him - but we are two different types (he's Type A).

    PS - I will follow you...please follow me as well.
