{Pin}spired Copycat Week 6

Okay, so this is actually yesterday's post...I'm a little behind! I was GOING to post this yesterday but a big thunderstorm came through and knocked out the power! So...*cough cough*, anyway. I am really excited about my latest {Pin}spiration!

I'm sure you ALLLL know about the awesome Cutting Edge stencils. I've been seeing posts about them everywhere! I have been drooling over these for MONTHS! I wanted to do some sort of a pattern on my bathroom wall...but just couldn't bring myself to pay $40 for a stencil I'd only use once on a tiny little accent wall. For a great big room I would have made the splurge...but this is all I needed it for!

I love how it turned out!!! Not too different from the one I was drooling over, either.

This is the one I wanted to get, found HERE.

So, how did I do this without a stencil then? Well, I'll tell you. Once upon a time, (which actually happens EVERY day...) while browsing through Pinterest, I saw THIS pin. 

 

This amazing woman from Jones Design Company had done her ENTIRE bedroom without the expensive stencil! She even has the FREE TEMPLATE that I used to print out and cut and trace. 

 

I was really surprised at how fast it went! I got it all done in about 3 hours! And basically for free since I already had my paints bought. And we all lived happily ever after with a cute hand-stenciled bathroom!

(I'll do a whole post on my master bathroom makeover soon!)
