Stencilled Walls & Curtains

Remember when I talked about my mini bedroom refresher? And then I totally never followed up with it? Well-- I haven't totally blown it off. I just had to sit and think about what I was going to do for curtains for like 2 months. I have to sit on things for a long time. I'm not a quick decision maker. I have to stare at things and let it sink in. Ridiculous because it's curtains, right? Anyway, I finally figured out what to do. And I'll follow up with the whole project (really, I will), but I want to give you an idea of what's been my inspiration.

So I thought I can do this! The stencil is here, so stay tuned...
