Hi y'all! I've been busy working on the boys' nautical room redo! The folks over at Cutting Edge Stencils sent me their awesome Fossil Fish stencil to try out and use in the boys' Nautical room redo! I absolutely love Cutting Edge Stencils and even got to go on a tour of their awesome factory a while back with some bloggy friends!
I decided I wanted to make a valance for the small window over the boys' bunk bed, as well as a fossil fish bulletin board to hang above their desk.
I used the leftover fabric from the curtains I had already made. For the valance, I simply sewed a two-inch opening at the top for the curtain rod to fit in, then stenciled my two fish onto it.
The stencil was so easy to use! I have said before that I love CES' stencils, and this one was no exception. I taped it down and made sure I used the method of stenciling that Janna taught me herself. I used a circular motion with the stencil brush provided by CES. You can see this method in the below video.
For the Bullentin Board, I took two dollar store cork squares and covered them in drop cloth, then stenciled the fish onto them, as well.
I absolutely love the way it looks!
