Last night I gave a sneak peak of my newest kick: freezer paper stencils. I stenciled 3 construction vehicles on curtain fabric remnant.

After painting, I pulled out Sally. She's my staple gun - it's short for Sally the Sassy Stapler. The Nester calls her's Matilda. It was this project that gave me inspiration. I stapled the fabric onto the canvas. I love that The Nester says, "It doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful." (idhtbptbb would definitely describe my decorating style.)

Mr. Intensity was super excited to help hang the "art." He got to use his expert skills of bamming. To ensure accuracy, Mr. Intensity pulled out his level.
Then it was back to bamming.
More intense bamming!!
Ah! The final product. First thing he said was, "When Maddy comes over she's gonna look at it and I'm going to tell her, 'It's cool!'"
The best part? Total project cost less than twenty dollars. It's only taken two years for me to get something on the walls in his room. Maybe now someone will buy our house. :)
