I will admit that I am not a big fan of stencils for decorating. Let's just say that the time I spent working in an art supplies store, coupled with the tole painting craze of the late eighties, took its toll on my sanity. This lace stencil project, however, is enough to change my mind. It's not only beautiful, but it comes with an instructional video for those of us who assume we'd never be precise enough to get this right.
See how it's done here.
