So now with this blog, I felt like I had to up my game a little. In the past, he would have been very happy with a paper bag. So starting with kraft paper, (that's sort of a paper bag, right?) I decided to do a stencil and trim with jute. My husband does decorative finishes on walls and furniture for a living, so I felt it was appropriate to at least go in that direction, hence the stencil.
A trip to Jo-ann's brought home a stencil and paint markers. (From the clearance bin, but I linked to similar stuff.) Okay, I could do this. I didn't sweat filling in the stencil perfectly, this was supposed to look rustic, right?
And the reveal!
Hmm. Missing something. My eye kept going to the blotchy spots. Well, since I had just finished a post on greenery out I went to the backyard to trim some overgrown bushes .
Much better! More views!
