This weekend I was going to start on the baby bedding I will be making out of an old quilt (I CANNOT wait to share it!) BUT I went all over town looking for some piping and couldn't find any.
SO, i decided to tackle another project that's been on my to do list: stencil my bedroom wall!
I received a stencil for Christmas from my in-laws and was waiting to find out if baby Jones was a boy or girl. If he was a she, I was going to stencil the wall behind her crib. BUT he's not a she, so I was excited to use it on my bedroom wall!
The stencil I used was the Anna Damask stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils and I was very impressed at how easy it was to use. At first, I was intimidated but the paint didn't bleed through not one time, and I didn't have to wait for the paint to dry after each stencil. It was such a great purchase. The only thing I would change is that I would purchase the stencil level they sell in order to make the process even easier.
Here's the final reveal:
So my encouragement to you is this: Don't be afraid to use a stencil. Once you get going, it's not hard! You can do it! :)
