Have you ever been in a situation where you have an idea of what you’re looking for, but can’t find it in your colour/style preference or within your budget?
>>I see some nods.<<
In particular, wallpaper.
>>More nods. I am also nodding.<<
I recently came across an incredibly creative and fabulous blogger, Emily of Jones Design Company who faced such a predicament and so she decided she would paint a wallpaper-effect.
This is a case study of brilliant creative thinking and also PATIENCE.
Once the template was traced all over the walls, she painted over it using a brush of the desired width.
Love the pattern
The finished result: WOW!
Are you also feeling massive admiration for Emily? Mmhmm.

Would you attempt this? Do you have the patience?
I came across someone who did!
Lovely Landee from Landee See, Landee Do blog used this method on her stair wall:

The pattern in metallic silver looks fabulous against the soft blue. Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous! For Landee’s full post, click here.
I’ll ask you again – would you do this? Do you have the patience?
I’ll be honest, I absolutely love what both these ladies have done but even if I had the time to do something like this (unlikely), I wouldn’t have the patience.
The template idea is still fabulous for small areas where you can customise the size of the template – think trays, cushions, art… but for walls, wouldn’t it be great to have a quicker solution?
For anyone else who is time-poor and/or lacks such patience, but would love to have such an effect on your walls, you are about to love me a whole lot because I have found the solution for you!
There are many other patterns to choose from too. They ship internationally so no worries there! Ok, so buying a stencil will add to the cost a tad, but it’ll still be heaps cheaper than wallpaper, save you lots of time, you get to choose your colours and it will beat the bother of hanging wallpaper! Win win win. 🙂
