Project Pantry: Day Two

According to my Twitter feed, a lot of people were doing the same thing as me this weekend - procrastinating and wasting time on the Internet instead of doing projects. So that's why I only spent one day on the pantry this weekend...and it happened to be Sunday night.

This is my progress after day two of stenciling. I'm hoping to finish at least this bottom section tonight. I have to tell you I almost quit. I don't know if it's my homemade stencil or what, but I'm having trouble with the stencil staying flush on the wall and everything lining up properly. The only reason I kept going is because I'm blogging about this project and didn't want to look like a failure. Jon pushed me to keep going too, saying "just keep at it, it'll look good and you'll be happy with it in the end." So that's what I did, and I hope he's right. After serious touch ups it better have been worth it!

In the meantime, let's look at this super successful project from Courtney at reckless glamour. She refinished  and added a union jack to this dresser. I just love it! The colors, the cup pulls, the union jack, the distressing that gives it an old weathered look. Fabulous job Courtney! Check out her blog for all the other amazing projects she's completed.
