Kitchen Stencil (cooler than it sounds)

20 Feb

Every winter we end up doing a few home makeover projects since we have to look at the inside of our house so often.  We have recently tackled our dining room with painting a wall, painting a table top and just recently I painted this above the patio doors:Image

I think it ties the room together and I love that this is the first thing people will read when they walk into our house.

Here is how it’s done:

First print off the quote in whatever fancy font you prefer, then rub the back with a pencil:

Sucker your mom into taping the words to your wall and then trace each letter:

Magically, when you pull off the paper, the letters will be outlined

Grab your headlamp- you know it’s a good crafty project if you are forced to wear your headlamp.

Very seriously stare at your letters until they are complete.  And have tons of fun!

All in all this project took one or two hours for three nights- so 4 hours total.  It was fairly easy but took some patience and a steady hand to paint in the letters.
