JAZZ up a wall

You could do it in a day – with a stencil…..

It took me 3 days to complete this but because I was of coarse working on like 6 other projects at the time.  I totally think this could have been done in a day, if it were the only project I was working on……

I’ve been wanting to do this to a bedroom wall but, decided to jazz up the living room for my “Stock My Bar” party

I totally messed up here on the gold you see I wanted to try and make it darker so I left stencil on to dry and then applied a second coat of gold…..and do you know what happened?

The paint dried and peeled off with the stencil….

Lesson learned

See the chipping in the gold I fixed it later by just reapplying after it was dry {and removing stencil right away ;-)}

Paint didn’t cost me anything for this project as I had Martha Stewart’s paints in Silver & Gold left over from the coffee table

And this project only cost me $28.75 for the stencil as I already had the left over paint and there is still plenty left over……

    I love the after. The shine of the paint is great. We are thinking of doing a stencil on one wall in our master later this summer and this is making me think we totally need to go for it. Thanks so much for sharing on Tout It Tuesday! Hope to see you next week.
