Accenting with Chevron! Sneak Peek at Baby Girl’s Ceiling

Are you guys ready to see one of my FAVORITE projects I’ve completed to date?!  I’ve been working away in Baby Girl’s Nursery and a couple weekends ago I finished painting in here… painting the ceiling!

You may remember a little bit ago I was talking about the 5th wall, and started to dream up the idea of painting Baby Girl’s ceiling.  Well thanks to Cutting Edge Stencils I received my motivation and got to it!

PB&Jstories Nursery Chevron Ceiling

This is the 3rd time using a CES stencil and each and every time I’m so impressed with the quality and my results.  Stenciling really does step up the WOW factor in any room of your home!  I’ve also used their stencils for my stenciled curtains, and my stenciled kitchen pantry.
Well I immediately had the idea of doing chevron on the ceiling and so I messaged CES asking if they by chance had a chevron stencil that I just couldn’t see on their website.  Their response, “it’s actually the NEXT stencil we’re adding to our collection!”. That’s’ what I call fate people! They have it in both a small chevron, and the large chevron pattern.  I choose the large stencil and knew once I received it, there was no turning back.  I was getting my 8 month pregnant buns up on a ladder to do some serious painting!
This is just a sneak peek (a pretty BIG sneak peek though!)  But I am HEAD OVER HEELS in love with how it turned out! Honestly, I go in her room 500 times a day and just stare, and smile.  It’s exactly what I was wanting for her room.  If you follow me on Facebook and Instagram you know what weekend I tackled this project as I kept sending out updates.  One so people knew I was still alive (like I said I was up on a ladder for a total of about 18 hours total that weekend) and two because I was just too excited to not keep posting teaser pictures.

I was actually REALLY surprised how great the stencil worked.  My ceilings are a textured surface, just as our walls they have a knockdown texture to them which makes painting a challenge, and makes stenciling very challenging.  I almost started the project assuming I’d use the stencil in the beginning but then just as a guide and would end up taping out the whole ceiling to just be able paint it out.  However the stencil worked PERFECTLY!  I had minimal bleeds and it ended up being so much easier to use than had I spent the time taping out the whole design. 
I’m going to do another post filled with tons of tips and tricks of how I stenciled the ceiling because I did quickly learn things that made the process easier. 
But for now, let’s kick back our heels and just look at how ADORABLE my Baby Girl’s ceiling is!
