    Big Grin *update in post #18...all done!* Update on my adventure with wall stenciling [IMGS]

    A little update to this thread - Wall stenciling?

    Like Lynn said...it can be a pain in the ass, but it's worth it!!

    All drawn out!


    The cutting begins...


    Tacked to the wall...


    I used spray paint...not sure if I'll do that for the real deal or use another type.


    Ta-da!


    ...and to use as a comparison of what the design is from...

    Awesome! The regular paint instead of spray is definitely the way to go, it looks great though!

    I agree. The whole room is getting painted tomorrow so I just wanted to do a quick trial to see if it'd turn out half decent. I still want to do a paint with a little shine like this has...just not THAT much shine.

    This is the pink that will be on the walls


    Then for the stencil it'll be like a pearly / shiny grey.
