I've just been flicking though all the photo folders I now have clogging up Helen's computer. They contain all of the things I've been getting up too during my time with The Stencil Library and I came across a few "before and after" pictures from a couple of projects, and I just couldn't believe how much some of them have transformed... and all from a little lick of paint and some good old tlc.
This was once our office manager Rachel's living room up in the attic, and granted, it took a fair amount of time to change but then again we left no part of it untouched! I think this is quite possibly my favourite room in the whole of Stocksfield Hall, I may be a little biased cause it's the only room in which I've played a major part, but the amount of self satisfaction, knowing that I helped put this wonderful room together makes me immensely proud, and I love it! I may try and move in on the sly, hopefully Helen won't notice.
This is a sneak peak for another blog post that I am writing. This is another attic room that I have been working on with Helen. She started the wall decoration and I completed it. I chose the JA52 Wave stencil for the door; something not too bright or flashy to take attention from the wall, it was an absolute demon in certain places however it was totally worth it and looks fab!
I didn't really think or know much about stencils before I came here but it really has opened my eyes to just how versatile they are and what completely amazing things you can do with them. The posibilities really are endless! You can radically change the look of the most simple things and make them look like they've been professionally done, in a relatively short space of time and with a much smaller hole in your purse. What more could you want?
