This project I had been planning for over a year. That's right, over a year and a half to be exact. I only started to work on it a few weeks ago though. It just took that long for me to find the right design, and have some extra time in between naps, feeding a toddler, taking care of my husband and house, and all of the other things that come with being a stay at home mom. (Don't get me wrong, though. I wouldn't change what I do for anything ever.)
Anyway, I found this template from here. I just printed it off, cut it out. Then I decided that it would take waaaaay to long to do with that itty bitty thing, so I traced it onto a 12 x 12 paper, then cut that out.
|This is what my room looked like when we bought our|
condo, this pic was taken with our crappy camera so
you can't get the full effect of the ugliness that was this
particular color of yellow-ish-p
|Here is my stencil all cut out, you'll notice that it got|
ripped by a certain little boy... I just taped it, and it
worked just fine.
|I love the grey color on my walls, but it was just so|
boring, remember I have been living with BLANK walls
for a year and a half, I seriously needed some
|Make sure to use a level, otherwise, your stencil will|
turn a bit, and then make your wall looked like it is
bending, you don't want that...
|Here it is, all penciled on!|
|If you must stop, make sure that you feather the paint|
off, so it doesn't leave a line in the paint. I am OCD about
stuff being straight, and pretty much perfect, so that
really bothers me.
|Oh how I love the finished project. Imagine artwork of|
some kind on the wall, then a bunch of pillows on the
bed, and hopefully I can get those little babies
