The Master Bedroom Wall…

The master bedroom makeover is at a standstill for now.  I’m waiting on the fabric to arrive for our headboard.  However, the wall stencil project is complete (well, mostly, still need to touch up a few spots).  Here’s how it progressed:
BEFORE: Clean, but lacking any character and warmth.

Day One of painting. Tracing the stencil only took an afternoon.

Day Two. At this point, I was beginning to question what I had gotten myself in to. I tend to do this with projects at this stage and usually ask Hubby, “Who’s great idea was this?!”

Day Three.

Day Four.

Day Five. FYI: the Hubs hates that I use barstools and chairs to stand on instead of ladders.

Day Six. Stenciling complete!

As you can see, I cheated a little and didn’t stencil where our headboard will be.  I printed the stencil from Jones Design Co and followed her pattern.  Very time-consuming, but well worth the end result.  The dark square is the sample for our headboard fabric.  It is a dark grey basketweave fabric.  Can’t wait for it to arrive so I can finish this room and move on to the next.
What projects do you have in the works?

A Project in Progress…

I’ve got something in the works.  It involves a whole lot of this…

More details to follow once project is complete!  I’m very excited about it.  Hubby is holding out on any response until he sees the finished product.
