It's amazing how one pretty thing can make a girl so happy, and that is making me wonder "why did I wait so long on this?" My freshly stenciled kitchen wall is giving me butterflies every time I walk into the room! I would highly recommend everyone stencil a wall. Not a lot of time, a little hassle, but so worth the effort, in my opinion!
I wanted something interesting on this wall but wasn't ready for the commitment or the expense of wallpaper, so I decided stenciling was the way to go, and I could not be happier with the end result!
Here is what it looked like before:
And here it is after!
What I love is that it has all the great look of wallpaper, but without the high price tag! It adds beautiful texture! I can change it up whenever I want without having to rip wallpaper off!
Love. Love. Love.
The cool part about it is, you don't have to be a perfectionist! Mine is not a perfect stenciling job. If you look closely you can tell. I thought I would go back afterward and touch up all of my mistakes, but really? From a distance when it's all finished, it's truly not obvious. I love it just the way it is, so I'm leaving her with all her beautiful imperfections.
*Today's gratitude: I am SOOO grateful for a place to call home. For my place that I have to clean, to decorate, to teach my kids, and for a place where we can all feel safe from the outside world. Home truly is where the heart is. ♥♥♥
