my preciousssss

i started a painting project six months ago with the largest canvas i could find at michaels. the idea came from domino magazine - which featured a stenciled painting hanging above a banquet table. i feel in love instantly with the pattern and looked into obtaining the stencil to recreate the look. unfortunately, i found the stencil but it came at a hefty price - nearly $150 for each panel of the stencil (there were 3 panels used!). so i decided to do the next best thing - i printed the super-low resolution images of the stencils (i could only enlarge it enough to barely fit on a single sheet of paper). and i hand-painted the pattern myself! its been a long time in the making, but i finally finished and am so glad i kept with it! its going up in my formal dining room which we've converted into a seating area for more functionality.

have a lovely weekend all! <3
