I've been eyeing stencils for a while, but thought it was way too much work for me. When my sister realized that the wallpaper she wanted would cost her about $1,500 for one wall, I had to stop her. Actually, this was before she decided to randomly move to Paris and find herself, and money wasn't really an issue. So in the end, choosing a stencil was the perfect idea. Here is an incredible inspiration photo.
We purchased the Donatella Damask from Royal Design Studio. thanks to Vintage Revivals. Mandi is a huge inspiration and her incredible tutorials. We bought this one at 10% off.
We started with this giant wall with a fresh coat of paint.
We placed the stencil on the wall and painted. We used a small foam roller and tried to dry off as much paint as possible before rolling.
