"S" is for Stenciled Wood Wall Art

I'm participating in the 10 Days of Valentines challenge with Porch and Valspar paint whereby I was to create a diy project using marsala paint and a mystery item from Porch.  

As you can see the mystery item was a stencil and this diy gal never uses stencils but I was up for the challenge.

I used the stencil in a tile like fashion to make this wood wall art which resembles a quilt.  I love the intricate detail of the stencil and the delicate nature of the shapes.

This project has a little Valentine's Day hint in the hearts that are part of the stencil pattern, I painted them gold for contrast.

As much as I love the detail of the stencil I felt the white edges were too harsh so I sanded them down a bit for a distressed look.
