Just a little teaser  Smiley

This was my inspiration:


The stencil itself was like, $50... but I'm crafty... I don't need no stinkin' stencil!!

It's a birch tree stencil.  I google image searched and found this:


So here's my bedroom wall bare:


A couple of taping shots:




It took about 8 hours to tape everything off.  I used 2 in blue painters tape and then the normal size Frog painters tape.  I wanted white trees on a gray background, so I taped the trees and painted over it.


The problem was that the wall are textured, so I didn't get ANY straight lines.  I had to go over all of it with a a small paint brush.  It took me a total of 3 days to finish it.


I didn't bother taping off all the little accents.  I just made them up as I went.  And here's the final product:


I'm really happy with the way it turned out.  The bedroom's being done in gray, white and coral.  You can expect to see A LOT of my bedroom crafts to be posted! C&C welcome!!
