THE BIG STENCIL REVEAL!

So it's been a looooong time coming...like two weeks worth of HARD labor. Okay, okay, not that hard but it was a chore! My stencil wall in my bedroom is finally complete! Here is the before picture, and please excuse the mess...we had just finished painting.


To stencil the wall, first I traced the design. Then, I painted the inside of every stencil. Pretty much just followed the tutorial over at Jones Design Company.



Here it is finished! I absolutely love it and I believe it will look great with my DIY headboard and bedspread I'm getting for my birthday.




The only hangup I have is that up close it doesn't look the best. Mainly because I should have got a F in art class. I am a terrible free hander. Or whatever they call it....

By the way, the paint colors I used were Cool Gray by Valspar and Steeple Gray by Olympic. I got both at Lowes. Also, the lamps are from IKEA, my obsession.

Let me know what you think! I'm going now to stare aimlessly at it. After all, a girl can admire her 2 weeks worth of work right?
