Painted Ikat Chevron Wall

Painted Ikat Chevron Wall  I finished my last painting project today!  I stenciled my entry in an ikat chevron stripe. (Yes, this used to have the big DeGournay mural.  As much as I liked it, I learned I am not that much of a yellow person.  Also I paint all the time, so I get tired of things quickly.)

The white rows still had to be finished so I cut the bottom off the stencil once I finished all the rows and used for the last few edges...

Oh, and I finished one more project before Thanksgiving... my chairs.  I used the blanket I had in my son's room.  They didn't care for it too much, so I took it back. Painted Ikat Chevron Wall 
I am now done for a bit with projects.  Time to focus on Christmas.  We got our tree yesterday, and decorated it last night.  The kids were so excited, that makes it so much more fun.
Now we plan on getting cozy and watching lots of Christmas specials here, or couch jumping... Painted Ikat Chevron Wall
