A New Stencil!

Hello, and happy Monday. I am back today with a new stencil pattern! I say "new", but really I borrowed the pattern from Sunny's Goodtime Paint - I just made my own stencil.

Here is the stencil I made (it's on two pieces of posterboard - that shows you how large it is!)

I just freehand drew half of the pattern on the left side of the posterboard, then cut it out with my razorblade (not a short process). Then, I flipped that pattern over to the right side and traced the pattern out onto the open posterboard so that the pattern would be the exact same. I then cut out that side with my razorblade. It took a while - I probably should've just bought the stencil from the website! :)

Anyway, here is how it came out:

I adore the pattern with the Greek key curtains!

  1. STUNNING. How do you get your posterboard stencil to paint so 'crisp'? I always get paint bleeding under it when I try.....

  2. thank you!

    jo - I don't actually use it as a stencil. I use it as a template, then i go back in and hand-paint everything with a small brush. it's tedious!!

  3. This looks amazing! I always love bold and unique rooms like this, but feel like they're such a risk because one wrong element spells disaster. This is flawless though. Love, love, love the new stencil!!!

  10. That stencil is truly fabulous but I just can't take my eyes of that sexy red chandelier ... tell me you swing from it! Occassionally? Maybe just once? ;)
