i'm practically obsessed with all things stencil, if i had free reign over the decoration of our new place each room would tactically (or tackily, quite possibly) be decorated with a stencil design. below is a picture of the stencil i did in our bedroom. the stencil i used had notches making it easy to line up on the wall. in fact if you are looking for a good stencil i would totally recommend the damask stencil we bought from this store
just look at these floor stencils!..
