The clock is real and the stencils are from http://www.dresslerstencils.com/ShowView/category/29

EDIT:  Come on Craftsters - I'm kidding about him not noticing.....

Very nice! Too funny that your husband didn't notice.

Hi Rickrackruby! Was that hard to do and do the stencil people give you guidance on colors to use?
Once again you've made a lovely post - thanks for sharing. I peeked in on your blog, too to see if you wrote more about your stencil project.  What a nice family picture!  Glad it didn't get deleted. Smiley

Thanks for your nice comments.  This project took about a month.  I completed it several years ago and the photo was on an old computer that went bust BC (before Craftster) and before I had a blog.  So, finally I am able to share. 

There were a lot of stencils involved at a great expense.  Once I had invested in the stencils I was determined to complete it though!  The border continues along the wall.  I did use approximately the same colors that the stencil co recommended.  I made several mistakes - they aren't too noticeable if you aren't really close!
