Stencil Love

The weather is being completely uncooperative when it comes to photo taking. However, it's the perfect sleeping weather, and I love thunderstorms, so I'm hardly complaining. But it does mean, no pictures of our Ikea loot. Instead, I will share with you another project that is on the roster.

I just ordered the above stencil from Sunny's Goodtime Paints.  If you have not checked out this store, it's a must. It really is unbelievable what they do with glazes, washes, stencils, and decals. I cannot even believe that's not a rug. Cool, no?

 I have never stenciled a wall before, and I could not be more excited about this adventure. Any stenciling pros out there?

just make sure you don't get too much paint on your stencil brush and dab and rotate. It's not hard to do, just time consuming. Also make sure to follow the marks on the stencil for proper aligning. Looks like she has some pretty big stencils. Enjoy your project- look forward to seeing the finished product. Thanks for sharin~

It is amazing what can be accomplished with paint and brushes. Unfortunately I've never been very good at faux painting. :(

Thanks for dropping by my blog, I think you have a marvelous blog and I am now a follower of yours.
