Stencilling - Oh the Uncertainty!

My only concrete pre-move decorating idea was stenciling the wall behind my bed. This room is painted a superbly cheery yellow so I figured a stencil from Michael's and some acrylic paint would be just the thing to augment it.

I sprayed the back with Spray Mount, tacked it into place and used a regular foam brush to paint "gold" acrylic paint. Then I moved over twenty inches and repeated the process.

It was surprisingly easy, if mindless work. I just can't decide if I like it. I only got as far as this row before shelfing the stencil. I will decide later wether I should continue.

My family loves it but they have never been objective about anything I do. This is great when saying stuff like "I want to be an English major!" but kind of sucks when I need real opinions.
