Stencil on a shower door {DIY}

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 from 
In my own style is where I discovered it.
 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.

Craft paint
I mixed three colors together,
I just wanted subtle colors,
bronze, yellow and blue
stencil tape
paper towels

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.

I cannot tell you how darling this is. I love the way it looks. I thought at first that you had acid etched it and I kind of gulped...until I realized that it is removable! I can't tell you how many times (years ago) that I had bleed under the edges of a stencil until I learned to take almost all the paint off-and I have never used a roller! I always did the pounce method. Rolling it looks like it would be much easier. xo Diana

This is great! Oh, how I wish I had plain doors!!! I am stuck with an etching of a former owner's out-of-date, ugly swan! I covered it with a cloth curtain.
