Remember When Stencil Was a Dirty Word?

by Jesse on January 24, 2011

I don’t know about you but I remember when the word stencil

made me think of little ugly flowers or something super frumpy. Wow how

things have changed. Stencils, I think, have made the best comeback ever. Such a nice

alternative to wallpaper. I sure love my stencil wall. =)

What do you think about this look?

I remember when stenciling brought to mind country geese and little ivy vines. They’ve come a long way.

I still think of those when I hear stencils! My mom was huge on ivy stenciling when I was a kid.

Love that southern living room! I love stencil, but I’m too scared to try it on one of my walls :-)

I love all the stenciling business going on. I just don’t know if I have the patience to do it. I’m a little OCD and if something were off, I’d fixate on it forever. Headed to my therapy appointment now…
