As you can imagine, I didn't wait long to put them to use when we got home yesterday. It's been a while since I have updated or changed the large photo wall in our living room. A few of the photos on the wall are just matted on plain white scrapbook paper, so I figured I could quickly update one of them using the stencil.
I grabbed a new white sheet of paper and cut it to the size of the frame I was going to update. Then I went down to survey all of the paint in the basement and decided to use one of the colors from the striped TV wall. By using a color that's already represented in the room, I was adding some continuity to the space. Plus it was free - nothing wrong with that!
I put out a newspaper on the kitchen counter and set up my stencil over the white paper. I just used masking tape to keep the stencil in place because I didn't mind if the pattern was not perfect. You can also use spray adhesive to keep a stencil from moving during a project.
What have you been up to lately? Any quick updates around your house?
