DIY gold floral wallpaper

I have been loving the gold floral wallpaper that we have all seen floating around the blogsphere (from Oh Joy!) so when I realized I had a floral stencil from Michaels I jumped at the chance to try and DIY my own version.
This project cost me around $8 for the gold paint at Home Depot and the stencil. I already had the roller (super smooth 4" roller). There is really no rhyme or reason to how you do it, the one thing I learned pretty quickly was to have the least amount of paint possible on the roller, it gets super gunky if you have a lot of paint.
It added a fun little corner for me to work on blogging, don't you think?

  8. I used to stencil the ish out of my bedroom when I was a kid. Love those things. I mean, I got pretty into it with brushes and colors. It wasn't like disney characters or anything. But it should have been.
