Well, I decided to finally use my houndstooth stencil that I purchased about 3 years ago!
I have a little piece of wall at the top of my stairs, in the landing area where there must have been a door at some point between the stair hall and the bedroom hall. There is a natural separation there- and that is where I did my stencil.
To get started I gathered my supplies:
blue painters tape
Martha Stewart stencil brushes
Ed Roth Stencil 101 Decor stencil
100% free, all supplies on hand
Keep on going:
I decided to cut the stenciling short…
I HATE it!
The houndstooth is too big for this area and I HATE the way it looks.
So, I finished it off with a quick strip on top of the stencils and I am waiting for my landlord to drop off some of the home beige paint so I can repaint and reassess.
I have a ton of stencils in my library so I plan on finding some with smaller, less rigid designs for this small space.
Thanks for letting me share the ugly on here-no one is perfect and I appreciate being able to show my imperfections and keep myself humble :)
What do you guys think? Does gray and beige match anyway?
