I wanted to do something to one of the walls in my dining area. I thought of painting stripes, but I didn't think the wall was big enough for stripes to make an impact. I searched the internet and found a painted wallpaper tutorial that I absolutely loved. You can find the tutorial and stencil needed to complete the wallpaper here. I only needed a pencil, ruler, paint, paint brush and stencil. It required little patience and time (it took about 10 hours) to complete but it was totally worth it and I would do it again in a heart beat. I think it would look great in a bathroom.
Here are some pictures of the process.
You can kind of see the stencil marks in the background.
The pictures aren't the best (taken with my phone) but I was really happy how it turned out. There were a few things I learned in the process:
1. Start tracing the stencil at the top of your wall (I started in the middle but was lucky enough for it to come to a point at the top of the wall)
2. Get a good paintbrush. I ended up going through a couple before using a make-up brush that worked out great.
3. Trace the stencil in a downward diagonal manner. I did have to erase some and start over because I went across the wall and not down diagonally.
