Olive Leaf Stencils.
dining room! (Thank you Olive Leaf!)
I bought 2 drop cloths from Lowe's ($9.99 each). Then I washed and dried them. Then ironed and cut them.
Once they were "sewn" and "trimmed", it was time to get my stencil on.
Following the directions on the back of the bottle, I just mixed 2 parts paint to 1 part medium. A random chopstick helped to mix it all up just fine ;)
I hope to have more pics (hopefully on a sunny day - if the sun ever decides to shine again!) of the changes I've been making in this room by the end of the week. So, tell the truth, had you ever heard of Textile Medium before? Anyone else in the t-shirt painting business in the early 90's? :)
*****Update: Since this post I have added more fabric to the bottom to hang the panels higher and have removed the ribbon trim.
We have also had the doors replaced with sliding doors and painted them black.
The family/living room now looks like this.
