It’s time to move ahead with the bathroom steampunk project. I got the walls painted during the snowpocalypse, so tonight after dinner I gave stencilling a shot/ I had been reading about victorian wall covering approaches, and Jeff and I modified a stencil we found at a home store.  It’s really fun and pretty easy. It’s fairly forgiving (unlike tile) when the edge of the wall isnt plumb or the ceiling is half a bubble off level.

In the photo, the paint behind the stencil looks really shiny but that’s weird light reflection — it’s actually satin paint. The metallic paint I chose for the stencil is the kind that’s bright and shiny straight on but disappears with oblique light, so it changes as you move around the room. Tomorrow I hope to move the steamer trunk in there.  The bathroom stuff has been living in the hallway and it’s annoying…
