This post is to remind myself that I will never stencil again. Of course, I said this after I finished our powder room also. I’m a slow learner. And a sucker for stenciling.
The Pinterest Challenge was announced last week. I’m a big fan of the Pinterest Challenge. It was just the kick in the buns that I needed to finish my 3/4 stenciled wall in my craft room. The room isn’t complete yet and it’s totally not styled. That post will come soon. But the stenciling is FINALLY done!!! I thought the day would never come.
I used the Modern Chevron Wall Stencil from Royal Design Studios. (Not a sponsored post. Lord knows I’m doing enough of them this week. I won the stencil by submitting our powder room in a contest.) I’ll share more thoughts on the stencil and tips for stenciling in the next week or so.
I know chevron is overdone in blogland. However, here in Iowa only 4% of the population knows what chevron is so my friends think I’m a designing genius. And I like chevron.
I’m not done with the room yet but I like how it looks with my Instagram display and rocking chair.
It also lives happily next to the button art!
I stole the curtains from the dining room to see if I liked the white. I do. I’ll soon purchase curtains at the correct length for this room. Someday.
Even Ike approves. Or does he? He refused to model early this morning. He’s worn out from his first video appearance. Check that out on Friday!
My Pinspiration was from the lovely Gabbi at Retro Ranch Reno. The chevron wall in her bathroom totally kicks the room up a notch. Be sure to check out Gabbi’s house. Their transformation is impressive. And she has good taste. And I like her. Is that enough reasons?
Unfortunately, I do not have the same patience for stenciling as Gabbi does. I swore I was going to still be stenciling at age 93. Luckily I finished at age 31. Although I feel like this project may have aged me approximately 60 years. But it sure is pretty.

Did you participate in the Pinterest Challenge? Have you stenciled before? Are you interested in stenciling or does it scare you?
