Let me first declare, I am not the genius who came up with this idea of stenciling a shower door.
When I first saw it, I was giddy with delight.
Diane shows a wonderful tutorial, and this is what I followed and did myself.
This particular stencil I picked up from Hobby lobby, which was very reasonable with a coupon.
I will be using my cutting edge stencil today in fact, and really can't wait.
I really am not fond of glass shower doors, and have always wanted to change them out for something more decorative. But that costs $$$$$$
The nice thing about using a stencil on glass is, I can easily remove it with some glass cleaner and a razor.
No biggie at all.
I will show you the rest once I get this bathroom pulled together.
I was just too excited not to share now.
Have a great Sunday, and see you later for the newbie party.
I mixed three colors together,
I just wanted subtle colors,
bronze, yellow and blue
First I centered the stencil. Once everything was dry, I over lapped half the stencil to continue on the sides.
The side where the glass is wider, that was not necessary, I just moved my stencil over and it happened to be perfect in size.
Total time on this 2 hours.
***The key to stenciling is NOT to saturate your roller.***
This is where the paper towels come in. I rolled off any excess before applying to my stencil.
Stencils tend to bleed under if you have too much paint.
