This summer I re-designed our living room and guest bedroom. My friend Kara helped me paint the guest bedroom. We stenciled every damask motif by hand, each only having half of a stencil (the stencil came in halves). The stenciling took 12+ hours. I think it was well worth it though. I'm in love with that room now!
|Luckily I had Kara to help measure and make the coordinates for each stencil in order for them to be perfectly aligned|
and spaced. If there's one person who will put the effort and time into getting something perfect, it's Kara!
|Taping off the sections to be painted (the worst part....or so we thought).|
|Wait...nevermind. 10 hrs of hand stenciling half of a design at a time was definitely worse!|
|The plus side was that Bella kept us company while we painted. I found her lying on this pencil and Kara and I thought it was hilarious. My little feline professor! We still joke about it to this day.|
|When we removed the tape we were so excited to see the end result!|
|Decorated and finished. Don't mind the wrinkled sheets and pillow cases.|
|Mirrored mosaic I found at Pier One Imports.|
|It's all in the details.|
|Beautiful beaded pillow from Bed Bath and Beyond|
|The upholstery colors and metallic tacks in this chair matched the room so well! I'm fairly certain it was fate.|
|My partner in crime!|
