Ralna at House By Numbers tried stencil painting on her wall and it turned out quite nice.
So today I took an hour of my day and finally started the project I’ve been thinking about for weeks now to try in our guest room. I totally stole the idea from here, and just made up a stencil with some card stock. I then used my $2.50 acrylic silver craft paint from Wal-Mart and a little craft paintbrush and took the plunge! Originally I thought I would do it all across the back wall – but now I’m thinking I like it in the corner and will most likely do one strip on the other wall kitty-corner across the room because I do still want to add my headboard and don’t want it to be too much. But I’m pretty happy with it – think it made a big difference in adding interest to the room and was definitely within the budget at this point! 🙂
CHEAP AND FAST! 😉
