As Promised ...

I promised pics of all of the projects I plan to tackle at my new home && I have officially checked one thing off of my list! I keep seeing these great stenciled walls all over the internet and thought I would use the technique to spice up my hall bathroom. 

I created my own pattern using construction paper and then duplicated it onto thick cardboard to make tracing easier. I tested it out on a dry-erase board to make sure I had a good idea what the end result would look like. 

I taped a small level to the piece of cardboard to make sure I held the stencil even && traced it with a light pencil. It took me about an hour to trace the entire closet. 

The painting took the longest but was surprisingly easy. I used a 1/4 inch flat paint brush and didn't pay too much attention to detail. I used 2 shades of green and alternated them along the entire wall. It took me about 2 hours to paint the entire closet but it was entirely worth it. 

&& the final product ...

Now on to tackle the next project ... loving the new house!!!
