Can you see it in the mirror? Isn't it cool? Better be, for all the work it was. Darn thing.
Ok, now the deets on how hard it was. Are you done with the whining yet? Whaa!
Here's the first crack at it:
Here's me. Notice the gold wall. Next.
Going ok. Sorry for the bad pick. I choose to do these things at 930pm. You know, the perfect time of day to start something you've never done. Also, since this was a "solo" project, meaning just me, I didn't need to read the directions. That's what my husband is for, and since he wasn't "on" this project, no directions needed! Ha! I'll show him!
Yes, that is bleck paint on the wall. No worries, friends. I'm a professional. Semi-professional. Well, amateur actually, but its nothing a little touch up paint can't fix. Carry on. Next.
Oh hell. This looks terrible. Its 1130p. I'm mad. My husband is quietly working at the center island saying nothing. I secretly decide to repaint in the morning.
Ok, now comes the part of the story I don't like. Me groveling to my husband (did I tell you he is an engineer? oh yeah. kind of detail oriented). I begged him to help me get a straight line. He says, "How can something like this not come with directions?" Hmm...Oh yes, the directions. See. I knew that would come up.
He measured me a nice, straight, level, annoyingly perfect line. Theeeeennnnn, I could restart. Next.
Much better. Still took 2 days, but much better.
Isn't it funky? So, I don't think I'll be doing this in my dining room. I did have the thought that it would be cool to do this on separate canvas', in different colors, and use those on the wall in the dining. After this glowing report, just feel free to message me if you want to borrow my stencil!
