One random Wednesday afternoon I threw it out there to Nels and we pulled out the painters tape and magic happened.
I had been looking around at different stencil companies and I had actually decided I was just going to bite the bullet and buy one but the whole idea of stencilling kinda scares me. How do you keep that stencil straight on the wall? Doesn't paint get everywhere?? And most importantly I did not want to pay for a stencil plus any other extra supplies I might have needed. I still LOVE the results of stencilling I see online but I'm not convinced I could do it.
Nels thought he could easily tape off the wall... so he taped the whole thing off for me. we used this tutorial on pinterest for a reference and it was GREAT!! I wanted a bit of a different pattern so when it came down to painting I just alternated the white colour a bit differently
We used Benjamin Moore Cloud White paint that we have for painting our trim and the original wall colour is Hawthorne yellow (also Benjamin Moore). Best part is in total this project cost us $8.20 and that's cause we ran out of tape so I ran to the hardware store in town to get some. I LOVE a quick painting project that has major impact.
