The painting is finally done. The walls I showed you in a previous post, but this week I tried my hand a stenciling. I’d never
I picked out a rich purple paint for the border above the chair rail (click here to see that install). It’s Valspar’s “Purple Frenzy” Interior Satin. I got the stencil and roller from my favorite craft store – Hobby Lobby. Also, the spray adhesive that I ended up not using.
The stencil package suggested practicing on scrap paper, but I told myself, “what the heck… I can always touch-up any little mistakes.” SO…. I took a deep breath, and set to work on the actual wall. Ha Ha HA HA…. Man I’m bad at this….
Despite the smears and globs, I kept going. And about ten feet down the wall it started to look a little better. By the time I got half way around the room it was going pretty smoothly.
And by the time I finished the room, well let’s just say the last several feet look pretty darn good! Yay Me!!
Of course then I had to go back and completely paint over the most hopeless areas with my wall paint and try again.
Other areas just needed a little touch-up.
Super cute!! I love how this turned out!
Thinking about doing some more stenciling around the house. :o)
