Stenciled walls have been popping up all over blog land and I have been a huge fan. I have been drooling over all of the designs and I knew the perfect wall to put it on!
So this is my stencil wall!
For starters let me show you the before. All of my walls were this dark green. It was really bold and some would say crazy to have an entire room with that dark of paint on it but I really did love it and we had it that way for 5 years.
But it was time for a change. I painted all of my other walls a light grey and then the soon to be stencil wall blue. I Wish I would have taken a picture before I started stenciling but I was too excited to get started. But here is a picture of me working on it.
The stencil is about 18 x 18 inches and I felt like I moved that thing a million plus 1 times. I used a sponge which made it look really pretty but it also allowed for paint seepage behind the stencil so after about 4 or 5 times I would have to take it off and clean it. This one somewhat small wall took me ALL DAY. This stinkin wall definitely tried my patience and at one point I almost gave up and just painted over it.
But I am so glad I stuck with it. Now I love my stencil wall!
I love my new living room and it seems so much brighter and even bigger. I LOVE IT!
