Master Bedroom Wall Stencil

I was so very excited to win an Olive Leaf stencil giveaway hosted by Amber over at Simple Dwellings. After lots of contemplating, I chose the Damask No. 1 pattern for our master bedroom.

This really is a terrible before picture (and yes, we did let our toddler sit on the bed and watch Elmo while my husband and I got ready to paint - it was almost time for her nap, haha!)

The stencil came rolled up in a tube, so I laid it on the ground with heavy books on top for a few hours so that it would be completely flat.  We used Elmers spray adhesive to lightly coat the side of the stencil that would stick to the wall, and then a few pieces of frog tape to keep it secure.  

I honestly cannot take any credit for this project.  My husband did the ENTIRE wall.  I kind of sat around, fed my baby, and cheered him on from the rocker in the corner of our room.

We re-sprayed the adhesive about every other time.  They stencil was super easy to use - you just have to take your time and not expect to finish an entire wall in 3 minutes.  Christopher is a perfect "stenciler" - he is oh-so-patient and very meticulous.

And here it is all finished.
