As promised I'm here to talk about my stenciled wall!
So I originally thought about using some vintage looking wall paper in the laundry room, but after I changed color schemes I wasn't sure. But, I made a stencil anyways. I used an old plastic page protector. Not the new kind, but the old kind that had black paper in it because they are fairly stiff. I taped four sheets together and then traced my design on with a permanent marker. Then I just cut it out with a utility knife. Making sure to leave small lines to connect the stencil. After it was complete I taped it to the wall and used craft paint and went to town.
I did the whole wall!!
Loved the stencil, but not necessarily with the linen wall I put up!
This blog is about "real" DIY, and in the real world everything doesn't look as good as it might in your head. I put the debate on my face book page. Many people liked it, but a lot felt like me and said they weren't feeling it.
I had to go with my gut, and my gut said get rid of it!!
So I painted over it!!
It's now a white wall!
You just gotta go with what you like!!
I have lots more to do in this laundry room so come back!
Thanks for stopping by!
