This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Sharpie, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #PaintYourWay http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV
It was perfect! I got home and practiced the pattern on a piece of paper. I initially thought about making a stencil out of cardboard but then thought it would be easier to just do it by hand. Sure it wouldn't be perfect but I kinda like the un-perfect look.
It was a bit hard drawing on textured walls which is another reason I'm glad I free-handed it. I would have been stressed out trying to stencil the walls, making sure everything was perfectly aligned. This way I didn't stress, I just drew. It was actually pretty therapeutic. Like doodling on a LARGE piece of paper.
We switched out the old bulb light and my husband installed a mason jar pendant to match the ones in our bathroom. I will post a detailed tutorial on the blog soon.
I hope my post motivates you to go pull out your Sharpies and get doodling on your walls or at least to organize your closet :) If you don't like the outcome then you can just paint over it! I actually painted over two of the patterns because they were pretty bad and I re-did them the next day. Just make sure to use the water based paint markers so that you can easily paint over your design if you need to. It doesn't have to be perfect! There's beauty in imperfection ;)
