So I have a huge problem of starting a project right when I have a thousand other things to do. I decided I wanted to redo my craft/sewing space. I purchased a stencil, slapped some white paint on the walls and decided to give the stenciling a whirl. Here is what happened.
I loved the stencil. I loved the effect of wallpaper it gave. While it wasn't exactly easy to do, it wasn't nearly as hard as hanging wallpaper.
I hated the yellow. I thought the other walls were too blah in the rest of the room. The new white IKEA Expedit shelving just didn't look great against it. The yellow cast a dreary color on the shelving, in all kinds of light.
In a fit of flurry, I busted out my trusty sage colored paint (used in the Laundry Room and Bathroom) and rolled right over that lovely stenciling. I was anxious, but when I stood back, I knew I was back in love with the room.
