Well, I started the process in March and have had the beautiful stencil hanging out under my bed for 9 months. At least the wall has been green for a while. Today, while we were stuck home potty training Eliza, Jason and I stenciled the wall. I stuck with the mock-up I made 2 months ago and Jason and I started by taping up the grid we would follow to get the spacing correct. Yes, I am a perfectionist.
the place we purchased our stencil. It worked beautifully. The whole process of taping the grid and doing the stenciling, including many stops to help the kiddos, took us 6 hours. But, I definitely think it was worth the time! This is the look I was going for and I think it is impactful, stunning, but still subtle enough to be classy.
