So remember when I tried to stencil my entry way and it didn't go so well? Then I had to paint over it and do stripes, but it all worked out in the end because the stripes rocked my entry way. Well if not see the final transformation of that adventure HERE. Anyways, I swore that I would never try stenciling again after that big mishap, but guess what?! I forgot about the pain, agony, and long hours needed for the job. So I tackled a BIG project, well I don't know how big it is, it did take FOREVA!! Here is the before of the project:
I have always been in love with the stencil that Jones Design Company has on their site as a free pdf print out. I have seen so many other bloggers use this template and thought "eh, how hard can it be"? Ok people I am not going to sugar coat it. I drew out every single stencil, added lines around the stencil lines, painted, and had to do a second coat of paint. Oh yeah then touch ups and the lovely job of erasing all the pencil marks that don't get covered. Lets just say that your back will hurt and you may develop carpal tunnel in your hand, but look at this after it is so worth it all!!
