So, I posted the other day a picture of what I have been working on the other day...
little did I know this project would prove to be the death of me...mainly because
MY HUSBAND HATES IT!
UGH! I am really trying to get him on board... so some really awesome comments about how great it looks might win him over :)
It all started with this:
(please excuse the dust) :)
My cute ( i mean very disobedient) 3 year old decided to pretend to be spider man and jump off the couch, while pulling my very heavy curtain rod down with him. I mean rod, hooks, screws, curtains, everything! Yeah! After some long deep breaths, and a whole lot of prayers not to kill him. I figured this would be a great time to try something on this
huge wall that I have been wanting to try...
Here is the giant wall before:
So I bought a stencil at Hobby Lobby and away I went... (trying so badly to finish before my not so ambitious husband got home) Little, did I know that this was a much much more intense project. There is the initial stenciling, then touch up and more stenciling...
Please excuse the bad lighting and the ladder I just could not muster up the strength to move it, and after many long hours and a few not very nice words, here is the wall!
Good bye boring, Hello interesting!
I messed up a little in the top center, but nothing a great wreath can't fix!
Here's to all my 80% er's out there!!!
I still have one more row to do, but I had to take some pictures and my husband is trying to convince me to paint over it :(
