I'm still looking for guest bloggers for my "Best Thing I Ever Blogged" on Mondays. Leave a comment or e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you're interested.
If you don't have flat walls. Here's some tips:
1. Press the contact paper down really hard
2. Use barely any paint and don't paint in strokes, but kind of dab it up and down. I get a little paint on my brush and then dab most it off on a piece of paper and then on the stencil.
3. Or you can first paint a layer of the original wall color on top of the stencil. This way the original wall color will bleed under the edges and seal them up. Then paint your stencil color top.
4. Even doing all those steps, I sometimes have to go back and touch up.
