When Mahonrri left for Alaska again, I thought that I would start yet another home project that I could surprise him with when he got back, since Jonah’s room was so much fun. This time I took on a stenciling project. It seemed like a reasonable enough project. Just one wall in my living room – something I could finish fairly quickly. Can I just say ug? Oh you DIYers, you make everything seem like a snap. Now I’m not saying this is hard, but I don’t even have a 1/4 of the wall done and I started at the beginning of the week…. one by one…. brushing into each corner and line. Taping and repositioning and lining up. I keep stepping back and squinting my eyes so I can see how lovely it’s going to look and remember why I’m doing this. Remember lady! Remember! It’s going to all be worth it!
Things I would do differently next time around: 1)Buy/make more than one stencil or just use a larger one, and 2) Do it with a friend and maybe even get a baby sitter.
Here is a little preview of what I am working on. Await patiently pics of the final result. They will come!
