Know what’s better than luxurious (yet expensive) wallpaper? A trompe l’oeil treatment on your walls that looks just as good at a fraction of the cost.  Chrissann Gasparro over at Ducklings In A Row is sharing her tutorial on how to paint your walls with a DIY stencil. Chrissann’s hilarious account and really simple instructions not only make this a fun read, but also a project that will make you wonder, “Why didn’t I think of that?”

I love how this pattern made a very straight-forward and otherwise ordinary white-walled room feel immediately glamorous and “done.” It even straddles the masculine/feminine lines I was just wondering about the other day. Great work, Chrissann!
