Wall Stencil

Wall Stencil

Phew! It's done :)  As most of you know I had an unfortunate time getting the paint for this wall BUT, I must say I'm totally happy with the wall! It completely transformed my kitchen! 
First, we taped off the edges.. which proved to be quite complicated considering we have rounded corners..

Then we chose to start in the middle of the wall so that the edges would end in the same pattern.
Then we got a little carried away and forgot to take pictures... so here we are in the home stretch..

And here we are even closer to completion...

We found that our edges weren't as clean as we had imagined and it was really stressing us out, but when we stepped back and weren't RIGHT up next to the wall, it really wasn't noticable at all... We did have to clean the stencil a few times, they provided a couple of ways that it could be done.. The first way we cleaned it was by letting the paint dry and then peeling it off, I don't recommend this way because it somewhat stretched our stencil..

I still have a few more finishing touches, but I couldn't wait to share!

Questions & Answers:

How long did it take? - We worked on it in the evenings so we did a couple hours here and there, overall I'd say 5, maybe 6 hours.

How did you deal with rounded corners? - We found where the straight edge of our wall ended, leveled it out, and taped it straight down.

I have textured walls, will it work? - Yes! We have textured walls as well, looks awesome!

Where did you get your stencil? -, we were a little bummed to find that the level shown in their video is NOT included with your stencil, so don't count on it!:)

Was it easy? - Yes!  If you are able to color in the lines, you're good!

xoxo, Courtney
