When I was a kid I hated wallpaper. To me it was the ugly stuff that my mom picked out to put in the room my sisters and I shared. And somehow I was the only one that ended up helping her put it. If I had to stare at it while falling asleep shouldn't I at least have some say it what it looked like? Apparently my mom did not think so.
I grew up thinking that wallpaper was an outdated design tool with small flowers and subdued colors. Or eagles. That's another story. I just knew it definitely was not for me.
It can be art.
But for a commitophobe like me wallpaper presents one challenge - permanency. Not to mention it's often expensive price tag. The perfect solution? Stencils! Thanks to a wide variety to large scale stencils you can create the look of wallpaper with the ease of paint.
Three Men and a Lady's stenciled bathroom ceiling. Pretty amazing!
And my favorite? This look was created using a gold sharpie! Seriously.
