1. I ADORE the damask stenciling, wow, absolutely amazing!!!!

2. I love your color schemes!  I've been debating on painting my teeny tiny bathroom grey, you just sold me

3. I also love the acclectic feel your place has.  I think seargant deputy piggy and the tiki look great in there!

Amazing job on the stenciling! It looks perfect. Nice colour choices as well.

And as an aside, I have the same rubber boots as you!

The stenciling looks amazing.  How did you get it so perfectly straight and even?

after painting the first stencil, it was easy to line each one up and eyeball to make sure the bottoms matched up (which is how i kept it straight). i've been stenciling on clothes for a few years now, so i have a lot of practice! i'm sure that it would also be helpful to grid the wall with a ruler and pencil to keep stuff straight.
