I could envision exactly what I wanted to do on my dd’s wall. The wallpaper I have seen that was almost exactly what I wanted. The color and price was what was holding me back (like $250/roll!…..eeek).
Soooo, when budget and or design is not exactly right, that is when some of my most creative projects are born. A while back I had purchased a damask stencil. I initially tried this with traditional wall paint, and it was too thin, and would require more than one coat….no good. I got out my Annie Sloan Provence chalk paint (which was the exact color I was going for) and stenciled the walls. The nice thing about the ASCP is that it is thick and the coverage is good. It was quite a long process, but worth it. Here’s the before:

Will have more to share on her room reno complete with tutorial on a wall mural I painted very soon!
