Uh-oh...stencil fever


Stencilling is seriously addictive...i literally had to force myself to stop! I guess that explains all those houses you visit where there is a different stencilling border round the top of every wall and on all the furniture is seriously fun (and super-simple) to do!!!!

I just made acetate templates cut out with a stanley knife and sponged regular paint on top with a piece of torn of packaging sponge. Easy-peasy!!
The writing is an extract from a bible verse "Signore, non sappiamo che fare, ma gli occhi nostri sono su di te" ("Lord, we don't know what to do, but our eyes are on you") refecting the fact that we can never know what is the right step to take, but God does and we'll wait for him to speak before we step out in faith, leaning on his promise.

SuperD made a simple wooden crate-style drawer for my cream wrought iron unit to house our motorbike helmets and other unsightly stuff that would otherwise clutter up the hallway! I then sponged it with the same template as the stairway.

I love when life "matches" (...or mismatches in a cool way)
