i recently found some owl prints on etsy- they are printed on old dictonary paper- so cool! I really like them and they are a great addition to our living room- but-once i saw my favorite blogger share her new entry make over with some stenciling- i had the idea to spruce up my owls. here it goes- beware- this is so fun!!
after- it added so much to the room! eeeek!
so- are you in love 2? this is how i went about making over my walls-
first- i went on line and found a pattern i liked- you can order stencils but they can be kind of expensive- so i then enlarged the pattern i found and printed two onto stronger card stock paper that i had- then cut it out. second i measured the space around the pictures i wanted to frame in- using a measuring tape and level- i used paint tape to frame it in- i used the same paint i had previously used to paint the mattes the photos are on-
here is carl and i working away! well- carls doing the work i am just holding stuff in place- the staple gun FREAKS ME OUT! so every time it went off i would either make this face or yelp!
once again the finished product! i LOVE it! shea likes it too! he is so good about letting me decorate and create and not fuss at all- thank god for him too! keep checking back for living room make over #2- i am starting it this week- but still need to make some estate and garage sale stops to find a few pieces- it will be a fire place/mantel make over!
