Sneak peak #2

Today I was able to work on the accent wall I have been planning for about two hours off and on. It is amazing how a job that should only take an hour, can taken double or triple that time when you add children to the mix.

I have been wanting to do something with this wall since we moved in almost 4 years ago.

Within the last few months, I have been looking at inspiration rooms, hoping to find a pattern that was interesting without being too fussy.

Last night, I found it and I love it. That's right. Love, true love.

Tonight, I finished much as I could without a ladder. Our ceilings are so high and I am dreading being up there without holding on. I need both hands to trace with this stencil

Can you see the light pencil tracing???

It is surprisingly relaxing once you get in the groove of tracing, but it is still pretty tedious. I cannot imagine having the patience to do this in a whole room.

Anyway, that is where I stand. Tomorrow is such a busy day, I am hoping to get all the tracing done and MAYBE get to the store for a small can of high gloss paint. I think the extra shine will give it that little something special.
